Hello, Melodya

Are you sure he died in Villefranche near Nancy? There is an other
Villefranche (sur Mer) which is near Nice. That would explain that he was
buried in Nice .

The library of the Cercle de Genealogie Juive has a list for the "Jewish
cemetery du Ch√Ęteau" (Nice) under the number F193. You can ask for a copy of
it. Write to


As far as I know there is no online research for Villefranche-sur-mer, but
you can try and ask for a death certificate there:

I'm researching Isidore Sydney DONN, who died in Villefranche,
District of Nancy, in January 1898.

According to his obituary, he was buried in the Jewish cemetery of Nice.

Where can I find relevant burial records? Are any online?

Whom shall I contact?

All leads and ideas are appreciated!

With thanks,
