Moravian Cemetery

If you have ancestors buried in Moravian Cemetery – and believe me, you do if your family was on the island for any length of time – make plans now to reserve your space in special walking tours offered by historian Richard L. Simpson.  Simpson, whom my cousin and I met by accident during a graveside visit two years ago,  is a veritable fount of knowledge about Moravian and the people buried there.  This year, his tours celebrate the 400th anniversary of Henry Hudson’s arrival in New York Harbor by visiting the resting places of early Dutch, French and English settlers.

Moravian is now offering genealogy look up services, as well, and I can personally testify that the service is quick and informative!
