I am increasingly amazed at the quality of young people I have in my life. Ian Montgomery and his dedication to being a force for good in the world, give me hope for the future. He happens to be yet another teen cousin who has taken the values and guidance of his parents and turned it into positive action
How do you live your bliss? At this point, I am still finding myself and setting goals. I am achieving some of them and making new ones. For example, I am an honors student, I am working towards my Eagle Scout rank, I am involved in the care of my elders, and I am continuing with my goal-setting.
As a teen, what are some of your interests and activities?
Some of my interests include camping, video games, and being with my friends.Please tell me about the Eagle Scout project you are doing. My Eagle Scout project entailed me working in an inactive cemetery. What this means is that no more money is going in to the upkeep of this cemetery due to no more plots of land being sold. What I did was that a group of volunteers and I removed the creeping ivy from the gravestones to prevent further damage to them, and photographed the stones. The pictures and ledgers were transcribed and the information was uploaded to a genealogy website – http://www.facebook.com/l/6c1bb2mBHjDBhbwi3WXKycn9ekg/findagrave.com
The fully transcribed ledgers will be going to the Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater Philadelphia, who will put them on the world-wide burial registry.
Ian let me know: “On a side note, there are 17 recorded Weinsteins in the cemetery, if you are interested.”
