|Elaine||RE: Sons of David Cemetery|
Thank you! Yes, I was wondering if it was a reform congregation. Once again, thank you for your diligence. That was quite a job. Happy Thanksgivvukah!

|Elaine||Sons of David Cemetery|
I was looking at the photos of the headstones at Sons of David Cemetery in Providence, RI. I notice that none of them had Hebrew writing, which seemed a bit odd. Was the Hebrew on the other side of the stones? Just wondering. For a genealogist, the Hebrew is very important-- it carries the father's Hebrew name. Or perhaps this cemetery did not have Hebrew engravings on the stones. At any rate, thank you for all the photos you have taken. Much appreciated by many, I am sure.

Hi Dave. This is the first Jewish cemetery I did but I worked entirely from my photographs. I have reason to be in North Reading sometime this week and weather permitting I will try and check this grave again. I may still have all the pictures from that cemetery but that, too, would require a bit of time. I have been in touch with JCAM and I am making spreadsheets which I plan to share with them. What I found in other cemeteries where I used photographs, it JCAM will put every spelling of a surname under a single spelling. It makes people difficult to look up. Also in their records it is impossible to look up common names where there are more than 50. I was looking them up to get plot numbers. This is one I worked from photographs and looked the plot number up at a later date so I expect my spelling to be correct. There are quite a few missing people in their records. They got only what was turned over to them. Why I have only one picture here I can't answer and I would have had no way to know the surname unless I had photographed the other side. This is a busy week but I will try and get back to you. Happy Thanksgiving to you, too.

I added the photos to Helen's memorial and to Abraham's memorial. I took lots of photos today and I will try to get them uploaded as soon as I can.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!
Thank you, I have added everything.

I found the stone for Isaac Green (1875-1940) next to Ida Green (1878-1959). Please confirm if this is the Isaac Green (memorial 116232542) which has a death date of 1946 and I will upload the photo I took.

Thanks Dave. Go ahead and nitpick. I read it wrong. I'm getting dyslexic in my old age.
Thanks for the photo and the corrections. I'll check my notes about the relationships. If the weather is decent, I might come up there to take more photos in December.
All the best.
