  • Friends of Abandoned Cemeteries Inc. was the recipient of a $2500 grant sponsored by Assemblywoman Elizabeth Connelley to compile cemetery records and other source material into a database of abandoned cemetery populations on Staten Island. Records will be displayed alphabetically by surname for a particular cemetery in hard copy, but on disk may be viewed by date, grave location, etc. Where the information was available, place of death and cause of death and next of kin will be included in the data base. Here it is:
  • Obscure Records of Interments and Burials In Staten Island NY Cemeteries generously provided by the Friends of Abandoned Cemeteries Inc.. Volume 1, posted, contains five cemeteries: Fountain Cemetery, West Brighton, Lake Cemetery, Graniteville, Seamen's Retreat, Clifton, Staten Island Cemetery, West Brighton, and Trinity Chapel Yard, West Brighton. Information was collected from sources such as cemetery records, early Staten Island Vital Records, and many more. Data may be viewed by cemetery and location, or by surname.
  • Friends of Abandoned Cemeteries Inc. encourages members to submit queries concerning the burial places of their ancestors in abandoned cemeteries on Staten Island; see contact information above.
