I am trying to identify if Ephraim (Fritz) KAISER is buried here and if so
what information may be recorded about him. I believe that he migrated from
Germany to Israel in the early 1930's and died in Petach Tikva and was
presumably buried there in the 1970's.
Hi Geoff
I was not aware of the www.sgula.org site
but two years ago JFRA, the Jewish Family Research Association of Israel
had a project where we took the 53,000 names >from Segula-Petah Tikva
and transliterated them to be searchable under the JOWBR project
of JewishGen. (Last year we did the same with the 35,000 names of Netanya)

So: go to JewishGen, find JOWBR by going to the menu
databases, general, JOWBR

or scrolling down on the first page to
Projects and activities
<http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/cemetery/>JewishGen Online
Worldwide Burial Registry (JOWBR)

you end up on
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/cemetery/
where you enter kaiser as the surname, regardless of spelling(!)
and Israel as the region

Up pops a list of 55 names which sound alike
and there at http://tinyurl.com/cqyvd
you will find Efraim Keizer (don't even think about the way it is written,
the transliteration followed some rules, which were set when we started)
who had a father Zeev (Wolf) and who died on the 4th of March 1986

In the grave next to his is Marash? (Marsha? mem-resh-heh can be a
lot of things)
who died 11 May 1983, her father was Avraham
It can be the wife without a maiden name, the system isn't foolproof...

There is another Keizer this time Ilana, father Nisan, died 23 Sep 1988
and a Chaim Kaiser father also Chaim, died 30 Jan 1969

I tried to look up Kaizer in Hebrew in the Sgula.org site
but couldn't find it.... (The cemetery had given us the surname as
kuf-yud-yud-zayin-resh) take care
