Mount Zion Cemetery seeks old photos and documents
Mount Zion Cemetery in Queens, which genealogists visit in search of their family histories, is looking for records of its own history.
Cemetery president Mark Stempa recently wrote:
"In the past, people have forwarded to us old photographs taken during family visits to the cemetery. If you have any photos or other interesting documents pertaining to the cemetery, we would appreciate your sharing them with us."
Materials can be sent to PO Box 780355, Maspeth NY 11378-0355. According to Mr. Stempa's letter, the cemetery "will photocopy anything received and return the originals to you promptly."
