I think my next cemetery visit / research will be the at Mount Hebron in Flushing,
Queens, New York. A number of people have been asking about locating/photographing
graves at this cemetery
I am happy to look for graves and take photos provided you can ID the appropriate
person. Mount Hebron has a database where you can start with your research.
I am pretty good at finding my way around in Mount Hebron and most o the cemetery
is in very good condition
Infants, babies and children are the most difficult because a lot of times they did
not have as significant stones and they do not survive the years. If you are
looking for a child's grave please tell me in advance.
Please be specific in your requests because I can not help you if you write
with a common name and say can you find for example Harry Cohen.... you can guess
how many there are in this cemetery. Mount Hebron has more than 200,000 burials
starting in 1909.
I do appreciate but do not demand a few dollars in return to help offset the cost
of doing these search for everyone and to make it possible for me to continue to
offer this as a service to the community. As you can understand the costs of these
repeated searches add up on me.
I am also happy to offer advice online if you email me.
