Just a public note to say your Rabanim virtual cemetery is a treasure. I've been browsing through it today. Hope you are well, my friend.

RE: Irving Narter
Great write up, you did a great job. You should add the link to his memorial. You gave him a family and a history. Great Job.

RE: Max Levin
Jim, I have a copy of an email sent to me from a cousin I was just reunited with through this search in our family. It is from Waldheim. It says Max Levine death 05/08/1916. Buried in the Gomel Chesed Shel Emes Secton, Gate 12, lot 89, section 2W, Row 93. His death cert says Waldheim-Forest. It also says father Is David Levin but I'm not sure if he even came to the US. I haven't found anything on him at all. I do know Max & Gussie had a teenager buried at Waldheim-Forest home . Bertha d. 05/17/1918. I have not had a chance yet to see exactly where her burial plot is.... someday I hope will get to go see the final resting places of my family. I want to thank you for all the hard work you do. It's one thing when you read your family members that you never new on paper. But when people like you take your time to do this for others we actually make a connection with our loved ones just by a photo that you give to us. Thank you so much for all the lives you have touched.

RE: Levine's. Westlawn Cemetery
Hello Jim, Gussie Levine is the mother of Israel, Edith is the wife of Isreal, Harold is Israel's & Ediths son. June Etta Blondell is Edith's sister. Edith & June Etta are Blonsteins. They are the daughters of George & Rose (Wishner) Blonstein both died in Chicago. I have looked to see where they are buried. I believe Israel May have been disinterned from Waldheim POW. His death record shows that's were he was buried. When I called Westlawn his burial date was a year after he died. But I have not called Waldheim yet to verify this. Thank you!

I am so excited and thrilled beyond belief to get these precious photographs of my great-grandparents and their child who died at 7 years!
