Bio and Links
Bio Photo Born in the 40's in The Bronx, NY
Father of Noah Baumwoll born in 1978

I have worked as a clinical social worker in the New York State Office of Mental Hygiene- and as a medical social worker at Hospital for Joint Diseases /Orthopedic Institute and St Lukes/Roosevelt Hospital specializing in Home Care. I moved to Westchester County in 1997 following a long residence in New York's Greenwich Village.
I have discoverd a degree of serenity in visiting the cemeteries in my area, and in providing a service to those who contact me.
There are some amazing stories to be interperted in reading the headstones.

I will only establish memorials of graves I have visited and photographed. During the visit I honor the lives and memory of the deceased and utter a prayer for their descendants health and happiness.

I have adopted Bethel Cemetery in Croton-on Hudson, Old Baptist Church Cemetery in Yorktown, Shrub Oak cemetery, Cedar Hill in Montrose,

Kyrias Pupa in Ossining [Many of the headstones in this cemetery include memorials to family members murdered by Nazies in Auschwitz in 1944],

First Hebrew Cemetery in Peekskill, King David Memorial Gardens in Putnam Valley and Rose Hills among others including:Sisters of the Atonment at Graymoor also Hillside, and Old VanCortlandtville, and Assumption cemeteries in Cortlandt Manor NY, Mount St Francis in Peekskill

When I find a Revolutionary War or Civil War grave I try and research that souls's history and include his regimental history and his service record if I can locate it to his biography, This being the 150th anniversary of the Civil War.
I provide the American Legion with the location of military veterans graves so they can be provided a flag on memorial day

Whenever possible I will try to include photos of couples graves and family plots with Moms and dads with their children.

I believe we are meant to remember and honor people whose graves we visit and add to Findagrave.
Only recently have I been the recipient of the kindness of other members of FindAGrave and have discovered the graves of my Grandfather, and his wives, and learned that he had many brothers. My family has been added to many fold am I am overjoyed.

NOTE: All of my photos are free to all who would like to use them all of my work is voluntary.
Please feel free to share.

Just saying thanks
Hi Gene, I just wanted to say thanks for all the work you have done. For me you have solved many mysteries and validated much more on my vast family in Westchester county. I am sure many others feel the same. Best to you.

RE: Correction, edit you sent
The information is from a Book called The Journal of Rev Silas Constant in which a note is made on page 230 concerning Gilbert Travis from the Will of James Travis.

Just Wanted To Say...
Hello Gene,

My name is Melnda and like you, am a member of the Facebook page,, Loving Our Lost Family, Friends And Neighbors For Eternity. I just read your post about Thomas Purdy, who I've left a flower for. I enjoy reading all your posts on there, they are always very interesting! And, because I'm nosy, (must be the "mom" in me! Lol!) I took a peek at your Facebook page. Wow! Woodstock??!! How cool is that??!!

Anyway, I just wanted to tell you I think you're pretty awesome for all the volunteer work you do for our Findsgrave community. I can tell you have a heart of gold and I just wanted to let you know!! With all the negativity and talk of members being snarky and rude, (although I've never come across any) I think people need to hear the good things and recognize the good people out there, and you're certainly one of them! 😊

Your Findagrave Friend,

RE: Your Karasik memorials

Thanks for the good work you have done on my family's entries at King David Cemetery. I don't know if you live near the cemetery. I live in NYC and can't get there very often. Your pictures made me aware that the plaque on my mother's grave was sinking, and I was able to call the cemetery office and have them fix it. If you are in the area and can take new pics, I'd appreciate it.

Karasik, I have discovered, is a very common name and we are probably all related in some way. However, I know or at least knew the names of all my Karasik relatives back to my great great grandfather and I don't know of a Barry. I don't know if my great grandfather, Israel Karasik, had any brothers. Also, I don't know if my great great grandfather, Sholem Avraham Karasik, had any brothers.

As for transferring my family's entries to me, that would be okay. I'll leave it up to you. My parents, Harry & Fay Heine, and my sister, Sharon Mingone, are my only relatives buried at King David Cemetery.

Again thanks,
Robert Hanna
