Desperately need photo of grave stones in Mt. Carmel Cemetery, Queens, NY
I need to be able to read/copy the Hebrew inscriptions on both.
Samuel Horowitz Section A, Block 18, Row 4, Grave# 4
Herman/Hyman Horowitz Section A, Block 18, Row 2, Grave# 24
These burials are in the Lida Bruder Furein group.
Digital Photos would be best so you can e-mail them.
Mount Carmel Cemetery
83-45 Cypress Hills Street at Cooper Avenue
New York USA
Why I need these photos as soon as possible:
My mom died this summer and while writing up her grave stone
inscription, I took out my grandparents ketubah to get the correct
Hebrew spelling of my grandfathers name.
Much to my surprise, my grandfathers name on the ketubah was different
from the name I had been told was his my whole life. I am namedafter him.
To clarify what his name is, I need to see the Hebrew on his
grave stone and the stone of his son (my uncle) who died while my
grandfather was alive.
I was told my grandpas name was Zelig Velvel. On his ketubah, his name is
written, Zelig Zev Wolf. Velvel is a diminutive for the Yiddish
name Wolf. Zev is the Hebrew equivalent of Wolf.
I need to get the name so we can get the stone done to have
my moms unveiling as soon as possible.
Thanks so much for your help.
