You say "married...1902 in York, Ontario, Canada".
In 1834 the City of York changed its name to Toronto. I assume "York"
means the County of York, which is part of Toronto today.
Those researching Romanian Jews should know that the Romanian
synagogue in Toronto was called Adath Israel. I celebrated becoming a
bar mitzvah there in 1947, and my father and his parents are buried in
the synagogue's cemetery.
I suggest you go to this website -
and click on "cemetery maps". Then click on "Roselawn Cemetery"
Scroll down to "inside Jewish cemeteries" and click on "Roselawn Cemetery".
You will see a map of the Roselawn Cemetery. You want section #2 -
Adath Israel. There are hundreds of Romanian Jews buried there.
I suggest you do a search for the surnames you are looking for at -
In the section "JewishGen Online Worldwide Burial Registry" search for
burials in Ontario.
The Adath Israel Synagogue has now become Conservative and is of
interest to all Jews, not just Romanians. Try their website - they may
have a database of those buried in the old cemetery on Roselawn Ave. -
