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.

While I find the idea of photographing Mokom Sholom fascinating, keep in mind that I live in California. Everything that you see getting posted now was photographed in a 4 day period in early April. At some point, it may be possible for me to join you in that endeavor. If so, I'll let you know.
Thanks for the advice, I have several death certificates on some of my memorials that were all found on free databases and some that I have purchased. I find them all a great part of the history of our ancestors myself and make their story complete. I'll have to keep an eye on them and make sure they stay intact, always keeping the originals in my family history. Helen

Have you ever found out why Find.a.Grave has removed cemetery images from certain memorials? Just curious as I saw a posting on a random memorial I was reading. And thank you for your research and contributions to locating and linking children in your research. Warmly, Helen Murphy, Nashville, TN

I have been to Acacia and Bayside. I have no immediate plans to go back. (If there was a good listing of who is buried there, I might have some graves to check out, but I have not found such a listing.) I am told that Mokom Sholom is impossible to get into.
