Mt. Hebron cemetery, Queens, on-line info. #general


Hanna Grossman <hannakg@...>
 

I have found grave information on two cousins buried at Mt. Hebron,
thru Find A Grave. I have been unable to find out elsewhere if
these men were ever married and wonder whether it is possible,
on-line, to get more information on adjacent graves using the
section etc. numbers that Find A Grave gives, which might produce
evidence of wives or children.

Hello, Hanna -

The Mount Hebron Cemetery interment search is very flexible and useful.
http://www.mounthebroncemetery.com/search.asp

First, search for the burial of one of your known family members. When
it is found, look at the location number. It is a series of letter and
number combinations separated by dashes. The first number is the
Block. The second is the Reference. You may also see the Society
listed. You can then use these to enter another search with no names
listed. The results should give you an alphabetized list of all
burials that meet those criteria. You should then be able to find
family members buried close by.

Bear in mind that, with some of the older burials, men and women may be
buried in the same block, but not in the same section.

Good luck!

Dear Cousins,

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
http://www.mounthebroncemetery.com/search.asp

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
