Lois Sernoff (jewishgen digest: October 05, 1998) has asked, "Does
anyone know of any NY cemetery(s) with ground dedicated
to members of a NY landsmanshaftn >from Gorodishche, Ukr.
[49o 17'/31o27'] ?"
I do not know of any such plot; however, a number of people from
Gorodishche, Kiev Gubernia, Ukraine were buried in the plot of the First
Kremenchug Associoation in Mt. Zion Cemetery, Maspeth, NY. My grandparents
and others >from my mother's family who arrived here >from Gorodishche in the
latter part of the 19th century are buried there. Apparently they did not
belong to any Gorodishche _landsmanshaft_, but rather to the one from
Kremenchug, a town not far >from Gorodishche.
