|Bio and Links|
|I began using findagrave primarily to find and memorialize my family members, many of whom I do not even know the place of burial. I also enjoy fulfilling photo requests. Since many other genealogists have similar goals and issues locating family, I have expanded my efforts and have begun adding all the memorials (with grave photos) for the Jewish cemeteries in my local area.|
Due to copyright rules, I do not post obituaries. However, if you have one for a memorial I have posted, e-mail it to me and I would be glad to keep it on file to help with researching family members. I do basic genealogical searches to add maiden names, missing birth or death dates, and link parents with children, where possible. In this way, I hope to provide the basics for anyone searching for family.
I will gladly transfer management of any of my memorials to family members (please provide your relationship).
Please use the edit function, if you are providing additional information or corrections for a memorial.
Use of my grave photos is for non-profit purposes only, with proper photo credits to me.

Eek, I didn't look. I have to return, however, and will check the back of the stone. Lots of other requests for that cemetery.

|Jeff zelinka||Harry shapiro descendants|
I am looking for the correct Harry Shapiro who was born in the 1880's. He came from Kiev in 1906 and settled in Boston. He had a sister named Rachel who married Morris Kessler an they moved out to California in 1920. I know Harry had a daughter named Bessie and possibly other children as well. I know Bessie was married, she smoked a lot and adopted a child. She died in the 1970's of lung cancer. My great aunt Esther Kessler Hochman used to visit her in Boston and bessie introduced her to their mutual cousin; an aspiring actor named Leonard Nimoy. If anyone has information I would love to hear from you.
