Chevra Achusas Oilam #general
Ann Rabinowitz <annrab@...>
Can someone tell me the meaning of, or anything about, the following burial
plot; "Chevra Achusas Oilam".
It can be found referred to at Mt. Zion Cemetery in Maspeth, NY, There are
no other references to it that I can find.
I believe that the spelling of this may not be an entirely correct
translation. Am trying to determine if this, in any way, refers to the
origins of the people buried in the plot.
