JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen NY's Montefiore Cemeteries: Two New Searchable Databases Now Available #general

Steven Lasky <steve725@...>

It seems that the organization that runs Montefiore Cemetery (St.
Albans/Springfield Gardens, Queens County, NY) has redone their website
which now includes a searchable database. It has done the same for its
sister cemetery, New Montefiore Cemetery in Pinelawn, Suffolk County, NY.
Just use the links below and click on the "Locator" link at the top of the
page to begin searching. Combined there are more than 280,000 burials in
these two cemeteries. So now there are close to a million records that are
available through all the searchable New York/New Jersey cemeteries, which
include Mt. Moriah and Riverside Cemeteries in New Jersey, and in the New
York area, in Queens County, Mts. Ararat, Carmel, Hebron, Judah, Lebanon,
Zion, Knollwood Park, Union Field.

The searchable fields for the Montefiore databases include first name and
last name, month and year of death. The search results include first name,
last name, age and date of death, grave location and society name.

Here are the links:

New Montefiore Cemetery:

It should be noted that the folks who run these two cemeteries are not
affiliated with the group who created the other six or seven Queens, NY
cemetery databases, so the form of the cemetery databases are different.
Happy hunting!
