Hi fellow Genners -
I'm trying to help a friend find her paternal grandmother. She knows that her
first name was Rose and her married last name was MORGANSTERN. The family story
is that while she was cooking a meal for the Jewish holidays, her apron caught
fire. She suffered severe burns and was taken to the hospital (probably
Bellevue) where she died. This occurred most likely on the Lower East Side.
The time period is sometime before 1943. I'm guessing 1930 - 1943. I've looked
in Ancestry, Familysearch, and Jewishgen. I've tried to find her name in death
records and some newspapers. Does anyone have any ideas about what else I can
Please contact me directly.
