Dear Fellow Jewishgenners,
An early Happy Chanukah to everyone!!!
I am trying to help a fellow genealogist in
Canada find someone. Her aunt, Alice LAVELL (born ca.
1910) was listed up until 2000 in the Bronx White
Pages. I went to the listed address. Her name is
still on the resident directory. I spoke to
the building superintendent who recalls
she had a home attendant and was moved to a
nursing home. around 1999-2000. My gut feeling
(I've been wrong before) is that this superintendant
was giving me accurate information.
I already had the New York City death indices
from 1999 to the present searched. Nothing.a) she could have died outside of the 5 boroughs of NYC;
b) she died out of New York State;
c) she is still alive and lives in a nursing home.
The Alice LAVELL listings in the SSDI are all
accounted for. Bronx County Probate records
have already been searched.
Is the answer staring me in the face?
Am I missing something? Do I unfortunately
The person for whom I am doing this is desirous
of rekindling contact with this aunt who
married into the family.
Your ideas and feedback will be very greatly appreciated.
