JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Tip on Visiting US Cemeteries #general

Make sure that before you go to visit a cemetery for the first time that
someone will be in the cemetery office should you need help. I recently
visited two cemeteries (Har Jehuda in Upper Darby and Mount Jacob in
Glenolden)in Pennsylvania. These were first visits. I did have the
location of the graves. I assumed that someone would be in the office to
help me if I arrived during the office hours that are listed. Big mistake.
Mount Jacob did not have its office open even though I arrived during its
listed hours. We (husband and I) could find no markings to indicate rows,
names of streets, etc. Luckily, there were cemetery workers digging a grave
who were able to lead me to the right section and graves.
