A further check shows that the New York Obituary Link Page
< http://www.obitlinkspage.com/obit/ny.htm > has a page called "Obituaries
of those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001" which seems to be put

September 15th and November 27, 2001. These are called profiles and vary in
content. I checked some profiles of those with Jewish sounding names - some
mentioned religion, most didn't, some gave enough family information to
permit further research, some didn't. I looked through most of the over 60
pages, each with links to 10 to 20 profiles but didn't find the name of
