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 (6-year-old boy/girl twins, a 4-year-old girl, and a 2-year-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

William Jeffrey Died 1876
Hi Elana,
I believe you entered William Jeffrey into Find-A-Grave for Mount Hope Cemetery. I am doing some research on him plus his family as they are African American. The Friends of Mount Hope Cemetery, of which I am president, is doing a project on African Americans buried in Mount Hope Cemetery, Rochester, New York. I wonder if you would share with me your interest in Mr. Jeffrey & family.Any information you may have, other than that easily obtained at Ancestry.com, would be helpful. Thank you.

Henrietta Goddard Wigglesworth Holmes
Good morning, Elana,

I just came across your photo of Henriettaʻs gravestone. She was the wife of my 6th cousin 4X removed, Edward Jackson Holmes. May I use the photo on my private family tree? I always give credit to the members who graciously allow me to use their photos. Thanks you for taking and posting it.

Regards,
Lynda Puakea

RE: Harry Melin
If you go through the main gate along the center sidewalk you will see 2 flagpoles side by side. If you stand at the L flagpole about 25' diagonally north of that is his headstone
