Re: Bayside Cemetery and Acacia Cemetery, Queens

Steven Lasky

Just to let you know that in the past I have photographed the gravestones in a number of plots in Acacia and Mokom Sholom cemeteries. I have, within the last year, donated images of said gravestones to JewishGen's JOWBR. I imagine that they have not yet been reviewed and entered into their system, just waiting for volunteer(s) to do so. So if you can, I would encourage you to do so.

The following town associations for plots I have photographed are:
For Acacia: Makow Mazowiecki, Mielec, Suwalki, Vilnius, Sierpc, Nasielsk, as well as Congregation Nachlas Israel.
For Mokom Sholom: Radzilow/Lebedow (for this plot I have the burial data), and Mielec.

I have donated thousands of images from at least thirty cemeteries in the New York-New Jersey area, and they are just waiting to be put online by JewishGen. So please contact Nolan Altman if you can help. Thank you!

You can find my own museum's "Cemetery Project" on my site, which is quite interesting and informative. The link is:
