Great Grandfather - N.Y-1947 #general


Suzecrazy@...
 

I know that my great grandfather was born in 1859 in Russia. In 1947 he
lived in an apt. bldg at Anthony Ave in the Bronx. I was told that
he was in his 90's and he was working as one of the men that would sit
with a body before burial. I don't know what this is called. Did they do
this in a funeral home? Temple? Does anyone know if there are records of
the people that did this? Thanks again,
