Looking to find someone available to find, locate and photograph several tombstones in the Queens Acacia and Bayside cemeteries.
They are not online anywhere.
Please let me know.

Acacia and Bayside are fairly large and there is no on-site office staff to inquire about a location.  Before going, call the management office (same office for Bayside, Acacia & Mokom Sholom).  The number I have is (516)295-4350. I think that is the administrator's cell phone number and I do not know if she still works there, since it has been 2 or 3 years since I last called. But, if not, there should be a way to find the current number online.

Sadly the collector of Data who with a team of individuals recorded
the names and details of the burials in those cemeteries, Florence
MARMOR, is no longer with us.

I have the computerized listing of that work

I was out to both cemeteries about 4 years ago.  Acacia was not bad.  It is not very large and was in good order and condition.  Easy to get around.  In fact I noticed a recent burial.  Bayside, however, was in disarray.  I understand that since then it has been cleaned up.  However, it is huge and, without a map, would be extremely difficult to find a grave.

The information being given about Acacia & Bayside Cemeteries are incorrect. They are two of the three Ozone Park Cemeteries. The third is Mokom Sholom which is always kept locked & you have to call the office to have it opened. What is correct is that there are no offices on site for the three Ozone Park cemeteries however there is a caretaker on site for Bayside Cemetery. They are not managed & owned by the same company. Bayside Cemetery is owned by Congregation Shaare Zedek in Manhattan & that is the only cemetery they own & was forced by a court to manage & maintain it properly. It is only open 9:00am to 3:00pm on Sundays. You should call ahead of time #212-874-7005 & the contact person was Jesse as of this past summer. Acacia is open every day except Saturday to 3:30pm is owned & operated by the same company that runs Mokom Sholom, Linden Hill, Machipelah & Mt Hope on Jamaica Ave. There phone # 212-477-2221. They assume immediately that you are doing genealogy & are not the most helpful.
