Bio and Links

My family research started in 1980.

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: Calvary Cemetery
I found possible birth record #'s for the children at Calvary. Unfortunately they do not list the parents. I looked for possible family tress out there, but no luck. The only real way of knowing is purchasing the records. Too bad none of us know anyone who works for the NYC Archives!

Dear NY Historian,

I just want to say thank you very much in your attempt to photograph this grave today. I'm sorry I don't have any further information about the grave. But your effort is very appreciated and thank you for notifying me that there is no grave information!

RE: Regina Felman
I called Washington Cemetery and finally got them to answer. The answer the woman gave me confused me, so hopefully you might understand what she meant. She gave me the location as Cemetery #2, Post 175, Row 5, Grave 1. She then told me that because we were talking about Cemetery #2 that she and her husband may be buried at Cemetery #1, Post 16, Row 5, Grave 1. Hopefully this isn't more confusing.
