I have photographed Mount Carmel Cemetery's tombstones and transcribed their ledgers for my Eagle Scout Project.

Update as of December 8, 2013:
I apologize for not responding sooner to suggestions or questions in a timely manner. I have done my best to transfer management and add information to pages since my lengthy absence. Should there be any questions that need to be answered that have not been already, please re-contact me so that I can properly help you. Thank you for your understanding.

Anna Harris, Tillie Harris, Alex Harris, Rebecca Harris Shapiro Memorials
My great-grandfather was Hyman Harris. He and his wife, Anna Harris, had 14 children. I have entered the information on the memorial for Hyman Harris, who was buried in Har Nebo Cemetery in Philadelphia. His wife, Anna, and three of their children (Tillie Harris, Alex Harris and Rebecca Harris Shapiro)are buried in Mt. Carmel Cemetery. Our family thanks you so very much for taking photos of their headstones, especially the headstone of Anna Harris. We just recently discovered her death certificate on and have confirmed that the headstone inscribed Anna L.R.L. Harris is indeed our great grandmother. We also thank you for taking photos of our Shapiro relatives (Daniel, Dora, Samuel, Bernie and Tillie. It was wonderful of you to do this, and we really are grateful to you! None of us live in the Philadelphia area, and it means a lot to us to see their final resting place. Thank you so much for your kindness!

Lederer family
Hello Ian and thanks for your hard work and Mt. Carmel. I am a descendant of the Lederer family buried at Mt. Carmel, and when I visited for the first time on a trip to Philadelphia recently, located the (overturned) grave of my great-grandmother there, one you had not identified. I have posted it now. I would like to know if you could cede management of the four other Lederers (my grandmother's father and siblings) that I have been able to find: Adolph (61491861) Alexander (61491863), Miriam (61491876) and Morris (61491878). I would like to add biographies and link the children to the parents. Again, thank you for what you have accomplished!

Find A Grave Memorial# 61492872
This is the grave of Mark Rosenthal, Mt. Carmel Cemetery, Philadelphia. Mark is my relative.

There is information I would like to add to the record. Will you turn over ownership of the record to me, so I can add that information?

Thank you.

Abraham Dorman
Hello Ian,
Had a quick question about the grave of Abraham Dorman who is buried in the Mount Carmel Cemetery in Philadelphia. I think this might be my ancestor, and was wondering if his wife whose name was Sarah is buried with him in the cemetery . If there is a Sarah Dorman buried near him, this is my ancestor. Please let me know. This branch of my family tree is almost non existant.
Thank you!

Mount Carmel Cemetery
Hi Ian,
You have done such a wonderful job of documenting and taking photos of the graves in this cemetery.

I have recently found out that my grandmother, Betty Weinstein is buried in that cemetery. However, I was told that it may be difficult to find her grave due to the fact that there are no markers which would indicate sections. Is this true?

I also am not sure that she definitely has a grave marker. Did you document all graves or is there a section which I should look in which you may not have gotten to?

Thanks in advance for any information.

Permission for photo
I would like to ask you for your permissions to use some of your photos for my family tree. These would be the Kofflers in Mt. Carmel. Possibly some others.

Are you still active on FAG?
Hello. Are you still managing the memorials you created for Mt Carmel Cemetery?

I left several messages, requesting transfer of a couple memorials from Mt Carmel Cemetery... no response.
