for your ancestor, which will have the name of the cemetery on it.."

I am afraid that Sally's suggestion that one may obtain more specific
information about site of burial on the death certificate may not always
prove useful. My great-great-grandmother died in NYC in 1876. According
to her death certificate, she was buried in Cypress Hills Cemetery, with
no further details. Despite the fact that my father remembered visiting
her grave as a child, we never have been able to locate my great-great
grandmother's site of burial.
