Bio and Links
Bio Photo Born in the 40's in The Bronx, NY
Father of a son born in 1978

I have worked as a clinical social worker in the New York State Office of Mental Hygiene- and as a medical social worker at Hospital for Joint Diseases /Orthopedic Institute and St Lukes/Roosevelt Hospital specializing in Home Care. Have had a private practice in psychotherapy and certified in Elder Care/case management, NY State Nursing home evaluator. I moved to Westchester County in 1997 following a long residence in New York's Greenwich Village.
I have discoverd a degree of serenity in visiting the cemeteries in my area, and in providing a service to those who contact me.
There are some amazing stories to be interperted in reading the headstones.

I will only establish memorials of graves I have visited and photographed. During the visit I honor the lives and memory of the deceased and offer a prayer for their descendants health and happiness.

I have adopted Bethel Cemetery in Croton-on Hudson, Old Baptist Church Cemetery in Yorktown, Shrub Oak cemetery, Cedar Hill in Montrose
Kyrias Pupa in Ossining [Many of the headstones in this cemetery include memorials to family members murdered by Nazies in Auschwitz in 1944],

First Hebrew Cemetery in Peekskill, King David Memorial Gardens in Putnam Valley and Rose Hills among others including:Sisters of the Atonment at Graymoor also Hillside, and Old VanCortlandtville, and Assumption cemeteries in Cortlandt Manor NY, Mount St Francis in Peekskill

First Presbyterian Church Yorktown
When I find a Revolutionary War or Civil War grave I try and research that souls's history and include his regimental history and his service record if I can locate it to his biography, This being the 150th anniversary of the Civil War.
I provide the American Legion with the location of military veterans graves so they can be provided a flag on memorial day

Whenever possible I will try to include photos of couples graves and family plots with Moms and dads with their children.

I believe we are are meant to remember and honor the people whose graves we visit and add to Findagrave.

Only recently have I been the recipient of the kindness of other members of FindAGrave and have discovered the graves of my Grandfather, and his wives, and learned that he had many brothers. My family has been added to many fold am I am overjoyed.

NOTE: All of my photos are free to all who would like to use them all of my work is voluntary.
Please feel free to share.

RE: JewishGen world wide Burial Registry

Thank you- that is a good suggestion. I use the JOWBR on Jewishgen in my own research, and I have been meaning to submit my information to Nolan. I will finally do it soon.

RE: Agudas Achim Cemetery
Hi Gene,

I just transferred your uncle's memorial to you. I am happy to do it because I have no personal connection to him. I simply created memorials for the whole cemetery, to document the gravestones and help others find relatives. Good luck with your research...

RE: Photo request Ben Moskowitz
It turned out to be for the other Benjamin. So I deleted the photo. I did not see your Ben's headstone in the cemetery. You should do a new request. Sorry about the confusion.

Thank you Gene, your message couldn't have come at a better time. I just received a request to change my grandfather's name from Chester F. Whitney, Sr. to Chester Whitney. I declined. Why would someone want me to change his name. I don't even know who they are.

Memorial Management Transfer
Hello Gene Baumwoll CSW,

My name is William Godwin, I have been recently looking for and adding relatives to Find-a-grave. I was thrilled to see a memorial posted for Abraham Godwin(112152134) my 6th Great-Grandfather! I can't thank you enough for posting it.

I have some information I would like to add and was curious to know if you would be willing to transfer the memorials management to me for easier editing?

Thanks much and many regards,

- William Godwin

Who made you administrator? Unless it directly affects a request you made, spare me the emails. I just don't have the time.
