The JGS (New York)'s database of "Burial Societies in the New York Metro Area"
(http://www.jgsnydb.org/searchcity.htm) indicates that the society is
associated with Khoshchevatoye, Ukraine, and that it has two sections
(Blocks 16 and 18) at Montefiore Cemetery in Queens and another at
Beth Moses Cemetery on Long Island. JOWBR shows a third section at
Montefiore -- on Block 28.
See the JewishGen Communities Database for more about the town...
Its Ukrainian name appears to be Khashchuvatye.
