Re: Montefiore Cem., Queens, NY #belarus

I want to thank all the people who have responded so far to this question.

At the same time, it's apparent that I need to clarify it.

I do know, as so many responded, that there is a New Montefiore
Cemetery on Wellwood Ave. in the Pinelawn area. In fact, my mother is
buried there and I live only 20 minutes away >from it.

They also denied having my grandfather's burial record there. I had
made the assumption that it was the Old one I needed, though, because my
grandfather died in a hospital on Staten Island and the family lived in
the Bronx. Unless the Old one was full by 1929, it seemed to me that it
would be more likely a location. In addition, I think the death cert.
would have specified "New" Montefiore. My mother's does.

I can go over to the New one in person and see if trying various
variations of the name helps, but I still think it's the Old one.
