I am going to try and make a visit to New Montefiore Cemetery in West
Babylon, NY in the coming weeks.
I am happy to look for graves and take photos provided you can ID the
appropriate person. New Montefiore has a database where you can start
with your research.
I am pretty good at finding my way around in New Montefiore as its
layout is logical if spread out. 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.
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 a cemetery as large as New
Montefiore. I will also double check the database but please be sure
to make it clear if the request is New Montefiore or Old Montefiore
because the two cemeteries are something like 30 miles apart.
If you know it is a child's grave please identify it as such when you
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.
