Bio and Links

My family research started in 1980.

In August 2007, I founded the Angel Babies Memorial Project. The mission of this project is to discover and record the gravesites of infants and children who died in New York City and other states between 1798 - 1948 and link them genealogically to their families.
Every memorial serves as a tribute to a youngster who died much too soon. They all deserve to be remembered and honored, and given a sense of dignity and love in death that may have been denied to them in life. By doing so, they will not be forgotten.

RE: Morris Friedner - Washington Cemetery
Quick edit -- Morris is in Row 1, Grave 8. They did not have the grave specific information for Saul, Lottie or Rebecca -- not sure why. I have added the information they provided to each memorial. Debbie

Franz Sigel Family
I wanted to let you know that I was at Woodlawn this morning, and I added photos to your memorials for Leila Sigel Schehl, Elise Dulon Sigel and Franz Sigel Jr. I recently created a memorial for the general's granddaughter, Elsie, who was murdered in 1909. There is no marker on her grave.

RE: Dominick Prendimano
I found a record that said that he was buried here, but no one can find his grave. I am waiting for a more credible record to arrive in the mail, but there is still six weeks left of the waiting period. I know someone who will be in that area around the time when I should receive the record in the mail, so they can take a photo for me. I removed my photo request since the grave location may be incorrect. Thanks anyway for your help!

Happy Mother's Day!!
