Hanna Grossman found information via Find-A-Grave about two male
cousins buried at Mount Hebron Cemetery in Queens, and wants to
know if she can get more information about whether they were married
by determining who's buried in nearby graves.
She's in luck. Mount Hebron Cemetery has a database of all its
burials that's available on line at
To see whether or not others with the same surname are buried in the
same section, she should type the surname and the society name in
the proper fields. If she doesn't know the society name, she can
type the first and last names of the deceased, and if she knows the
year of death she can add that to make sure she has the right person.
Once the society name appears, she should then go back to the first
step and type the surname and society name. If those people seem
reasonable based on age and date of death, she can investigate further.
Spelling in these cemetery searches must be precise, although a
portion of the surname or society name can also be used.
This method also works for
