Bio and Links
Bio Photo I began doing my family tree several years ago and then got interested in documenting and photographing all of the Jewish Cemeteries in Central Massachusetts.

I do not post obituaries per the Find A Grave Rules. I try to include as much information from the obituary as possible through the links. I will add life information and will transfer management to anyone who is connected to the person.

You are free to use my photos, but please give me credit for taking the photo.

Temple Israel Cemetery, Portsmouth, NH
My husband and I attempted to fulfill your Temple Israel Cemetery photo request today but were unable to as the vehicle entrance and pedestrian entrances were padlocked. We're not the type to scale a fence or circumvent it, but it would have been nigh onto impossible.

I happened to have taken the photo awhile ago and found I still had it on my computer. I also have a photo of Miriam's stone if you want to make a request.

If only there were not several Leah Wilenskys, and they all have similar dates.

RE: David Wilensky
Very interesting. I must have the error. I will look for a birth certificate. I was so proud of myself for figuring out the mistake in the family's tree. He was put as the son of Louis. But since his father's name was Shabsai (in Hebrew), he couldn't be Louis's son. Maybe Shabsai was Simon, as was his father before him.
Thanks so much for the info. I really appreciate it, and I want to tell you how much your work has meant to me. I would never have found so many of my relatives on if you were not such an amazing volunteer. You have memorialized with photos so many of my ancestors.
All the best to you.
