Forevermore on Cedar Hill Cemetery, Port Jefferson, NY
a continuing project by George Moraitis
NOTE From George:  HELLO.  MY NAME IS GEORGE MORAITIS, HISTORIAN FOR THE ASSOCIATION OF CEDAR HILL CEMETERY, PORT JEFFERSON, NEW YORK. I HAVE WORKED ON THE WRITINGS OF “FOREVERMORE ON CEDAR HILL”, COLLECTIVELY, CALLED “THE FOREVERMORE PROJECT” FOR MANY YEARS. THIS PROJECT IS FOR YOUR ENJOYMENT ON RESEARCHING LOCAL HISTORY. THIS PROJECTED STARTED IN 1990, A TIME OF PRE-COMPUTER. ONCE, A COMPUTER WAS ADDED TO THE PROJECT YEARS LATER, MOVING IT ALONG WENT VERY WELL.

TWO OF MY THREE FIELDS OF STUDY AT STONY BROOK UNIVERSITY WAS HISTORY AND HUMANITIES. FOR MY HISTORY INTERNSHIP, I, FOR TWO YEARS, WORKED FOR THE THREE VILLAGE HISTORICAL SOCIETY, CATALOGUING THE ‘CAPTAIN EDWARD R. RHODES MEMORIAL COLLECTION OF LOCAL HISTORY”. IT WAS A THIS PROJECT THAT HELPED ME FOR THE LOVE OF LOCAL HISTORY. THE HUMANITIES STUDIES HELPED ME TO ADD LOCAL PEOPLE INTO THE PROJECT IN THEIR OWN SOCIAL FABRIC.

THE TWO ‘SHOW-CASE’ INTERNSHIP PROJECTS I DID WERE FOR THE “BRIDGEPORT – PORT JEFFERSON STEAMBOAT COMPANY “AND “THE POULIANOS/POULOS FAMILY: FIRST GREEKS IN SETAUKET”. THEY WERE EXHIBITED, FOR SEVERAL WEEKS EACH, AT THE EMMA CLARK MEMORIAL LIBRARY IN SETAUKET AND WERE BOTH WELL RECEIVED. THE INTERNSHIP TAUGHT ME HOW TO PUT A LOCAL HISTORICAL PROJECT TOGETHER. AND YEARS LATER, THE “FOREVERMORE ON CEDAR HILL” PROJECT WAS CONCEIVED. I HOPE THAT YOU WILL ENJOY IT.
