Bio and Links
My family research started in 1980. I enjoy helping others in their family research.

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: Clef Memorials
Yes please. I believe I had Julia's certificate number on my list for retrieval but never got around to it.

Wynne grave in Calvary
Thanks for taking the photo the Wynne grave in Calvary and for documenting the death of Corp. James J. Wynne who was killed in France in World War I. What a tragedy to lose such a young man.

All the people in the grave are grouped together here:

Thomas Murray
I just wanted to let you know that I added a photo to a memorial that you created. Perhaps it is a relative of yours? Thomas Murray, who died 28 May 1936.

RE: Isaak Bibo
Good Morning,

I would guess that "Florence" is Florence Marmor?

I a read an article she wrote for on Mokom Sholom after I discovered Isaak and Veronica and the cemetery last week.

Thank you for passing along my interest to her.

I'll just keep all this tucked away in the back of my brain and see if I can come up with any cunny plan :)

I am discovering/making contact with unexpected relations all the time in the last few months, maybe I can connect with some in New York :)

Peace and Joy,

RE: Isaak Bibo
You are the second person this week who has kindly written to me re genealogy while on vacation.

The "kindness of strangers" is always a joy for me.
Thank you, again.

And do you know of any organization that is working on the restoration of the Mokom Sholom Cemetery.
Although I'm on the other side of the continent, I'd like to help if I could.

Have a wonderful vacation.

peace and joy,
