Queens, NY cemeteries and Florence Marmor #general

In 2001, I found a site called "International Jewish Cemetery Project".  Under New York City - Queens, I found a goldmine; 19 pages full of detailed info on the cemeteries, especially the one I am interested in, Bayside, also sometimes called Acacia or Mokom Sholom.  The website gave a Florence Marmor, David Priever and David Gevertzman as the collectors of the data.  There was 3 pages just on this one cemetery.  Florence had a website fmarmor@....  The site was still active in December of 2006.

I urge anyone interested in this county to give this site a try.

I am currently working on the late Florence Marmor Data - some 35000 entries for Mokkom Sholom, Bayside and Accacia cemeteries.

I have been searching for any surviving co-workers whose information Florence collected.

I am happy to look up anything you want to know in this "work in progress"

Mokom Sholom, Acacia, and Bayside are 3 different cemeteries. Although they are right next to each other and are managed by the same entity, they have separate records.  Acacia is well maintained. I have not been to Bayside for about 7 years, but it has a reputation of being partially consumed by poison ivy. (That may have improved in the last few years?)  Mokom Sholom is closed and can only be accessed by appointment.  I heard that their management office is difficult to deal with, but that has not been my experience. The person I spoke with was pleasant and helpful. There are several phone numbers on findagrave.com: Bayside (718)843-8480, Mokom Sholom (718)845-6030, Acacia (718)845-9240.

My mother's paternal grandparents are buried in one of them.  Jacob Joel died in January, 1870.  Dora (Dorothy) Friedlander Joel died in the 1880's.
I hope you find them.  According to Florence, Bayside was a colossal mess.
