I need to determine which towns are associated with the following burial
societies / landsmanshaftn in the New York area:

- Congregation Ahavath Achim Anshe Krasne (Washington Cemetery, Brooklyn)
- Congregation Ahawas Achim Anshe Krasne (Beth David Cemetery, Elmont)
- Congregation Kehal Adath Krasne Inc. (Beth Moses Cemetery, Pinelawn)

Leading possibilities include:

- Krasnae, Belarus (36 JGFF entries)
- Krasne, Ukraine (32 JGFF entries)

But I am open to other possibilities. I have checked with the coordinators
for those two towns and they do not know. Unfortunately, none of those
cemeteries have online access to their burial database, so I can't easily
do a cross-check against JGFF.

If you know the surnames of any people buried in those sections, please
let me know. The only one I have found to date, on Find A Grave, is
Plotkin. Thanks.
