Re: Finding a death date in NYC #general

Phyllis Kramer

Liz Hanellin asked:My great grandmother, Rebecca POPKIN, died sometime between
August 1962 and September 1963, but I don't have a specific date and I don't know
where she is buried. Does anyone have advice for me on how to find her death

I would suggest the following:
1. social security death index (try all surnames, especially if you know her date
of birth)
2. try JOWBR, our JewishGen burial registry with 2 million names
3. try findagrave, billiongraves and jewishdata web sites
4. look for an obit in the NY Times historical and other NY papers
5. try the large Jewish Cemeteries in NY

and enjoy the hunting!
