My latest mystery involves a NYC death certficate. Riva MELTSNER died
October 17, 1909 at the Montefiore Home for Chronic Invalids. Has anyone
ever heard of this institution? If so, do they have records >from 1909? The
death certificate states that Riva lived at the Montefiore Home for 8 1/2
months prior to her passing. Her usual residence was 176 Clinton. It is
possible that family still lived at this address in 1910 and that they were
enumerated in the census. Searching for them by name on-line has not been
successful, so I would like to know how to search for them on-line by
address: 176 Clinton, NYC, 1910 census. If you have the answer, please
contact me. Thanks.
Additionally, if anyone has a connection to Congregation Beth Hamedrash
Hagodol, 60 Norfolk Street on New York's Lower East Side, or to either of
Beth Hamedrash Hagodol's burial grounds at Machpelah cemetery or Union
Fields cemetery, please contact me.
Finally, if anyone has a connection to Congregation Nachlath Tzvi of Harlem,
please contact me.
