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.

What a pleasant surprise this morning when I found the link to the Find A Grave photos for Toni Lorber. I have been looking for this gravestone for a number of years. Thank you for taking your time to photograph the stones for others. Wishing you all the best as you pursue your own research.

RE: Gee Family Plot
You're very welcome. I'm glad you liked the shot of the plot too. I usually do that to give some perspective to the headstone shots. I like to have people feel like they were actually there at the grave site and that this is what they would see if they were there.
