Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Elana Kahn, and I live in Boston, MA. I'm married to a wonderful man and have three adorable kids (boy/girl twins who are almost 6, a 4-year-old girl, and a 17-month-old girl). I'm currently in grad school to become a Certified Nurse Midwife, and am currently working as an RN.

My mom was always the genealogist in the family, so she's the one I always turn to for questions, but now I'm the keeper of the electronic records (on Geni). Unfortunately I do not live near where my relatives are buried, so I either have to travel or have volunteers take photos. Most of my family is buried either in Rochester, NY or in and around New York City. I've been using my research skills to try and find where many of my family members are buried and so far have been somewhat successful. I still have about 50 people to locate, though.

Here are the last names that particularly interest me and the most likely place for their burial:

New York City area:
Bellin
Blumenthal
Doloboff
Friedman
Hyman
Levy
Paltrow/Paltrowitz
Rockoff


Rochester, NY:
Friedman
Melin
Raskind

Do you know if Joseph and Julia were married? If they were, I will update the memorials. Thanks!

Thanks for catching the duplicate. Must have been a glitch when I was creating the memorial.

Hi Elana, I'm happy to photograph Mr. Roznar's headstone but I'm not sure if the family has had one installed yet - do you know, by any chance?

RE: Isaac
New territory for this good old Lutheran boy. But no one seemed to be attending to requests for the Cemetery (20 requests and climbing) and it's about 1/4 mile away - so I'm tackling it. Mike

Never hurts to ask. Might you know which Synagogue he attended? It could help in tracing his location in a very confusing Cemetery. Are you connected with his kids? It's a challenge. I want to tarck him down.

Hi Elana,

Thank you very much for transferring Edward and the other Burlingames to me.

Happy Holidays to you and your family. Michael

RE: Jane Burlingame
Hi Elana,

I was just doing a biography for Edward Livermore Burlingame #110059397 when I realized that you created the memorial back when you did the photos I requested for his parents and it wasn't my memorial.

Would you mind transferring him to me? He's my first cousin.

If you prefer to keep him then I will send you some biographical material for him.

It has been a long time since I made that photo request (May 05, 2013).

Either way, Happy Holidays.
