This evening the searchable database of approximately 88,000 burials went
online for Mt. Lebanon Cemetery in Glendale, Queens, New York. I am assuming
that this is not a test and will still be online tomorrow morning, but you
never know. Whichever the case, it is ready (or nearly so) for you to use.
There are more than 260 society plots within this cemetery. On the cemetery
website, just click on the link at the top of the page that says "Interment
Search/Genealogy" and search away.

On the website main page is a link to the Cemetery Grounds Map.

The searchable fields are First Name, Last Name, Date of Death (Month/Year),
Block, Reference, and Society (Name.)

Just did a couple of initial tries, and the fields seem to be working

As to Block and Reference, Block is the block number or letter as it appears
on the Cemetery Grounds Map. Reference refers to the gate number. You can
also use the searchable JGSNY database to determine the Block and Reference
(Gate) number and use those numbers and letters if you wish. This can be
found at www.jgsny.org/searchcity.htm.

As to the Society (Name) field, I would suggest that before using this
search field, you click on the "About Us" link at the top of each page,
scroll down to the link for "societies/organiations/synagogues," click on
it, then look for the society of interest to you. I might suggest for now
that you use the "commonly used name" first in the Society field, and if
that doesn't work, just chose a keyword from this "commonly used name,"
preferably the word that signifies, e.g., the town that the plot is
associated with.

The best enhanced feature it seems is that this database at least (not the
other five created so far) dispalys a maximum of 500 search results, much
more than the 200 the other five databases give you.
That's pretty good! I have no idea whether they will expand the other
databases so they display 500 search results or not.

The Mt. Lebanon Cemetery website and searchable database can be found at

If you notice any particular problems with this database, i.e. functional
problems, and not that you can't find a name, there is a spelling or data
entry mistake, please let me know and I will let them know.
So far, the database looks good.

This is the sixth NYC Queens cemetery database that is now online, and I
believe that combined these databases allow us to search among 630,000

Still to come, perhaps in the next few months, will be Knollwood Park
Cemetery, which now is supervised by the folks at nearby Mt. Carmel
Cemetery. You will be able to find these records on the Mt. Carmel Cemetery
website once it is uploaded, though it could be, as I've said, a few months
or so.

Glad I could be the bearer of good tidings!
