Re: Piliver Podolier society #usa

I have some family buried in Mount Lebanon in one of the Piliver Podolier sections. Here's what I've learned.

Mount Lebanon Cemetery has its own website with a pretty good search function which allows you to specify the "society".
And the results include basic information plus the grave location, but not photos.  

FindaGrave has 93K memorials recorded at Mt. Lebanon but only 13% photographed  (and >1600 open photo requests).  There is an option under Plot to specify Piliver Podolier but it finds only 12 records.

Renee Steinig put me onto, a paid genealogy service, which has photos from some cemeteries – including Mount Lebanon – not available elsewhere.  You can search their database to see if they may have records for your family members – but not see the photos or records –  before deciding whether you want to go further.  There is a short-term account available and some JGS memberships include with JewishData access.  The organization of database is a bit idiosyncratic and it can take a bit of poking around to find what you want.  For instance, I couldn't find one relative until I left out the documented death date because it wasn't included in the JewishData record.  And the data provided – aside from the photos – is less than spare, so you'll need to check the above sources to get a more complete record for the burial.  

I hope this is useful,
