JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen RE: Ancestor's Burial Location #general


Ann Rabinowitz <annrab@...>
 

When looking for Jewish cemeteries, the first place you should have looked
is the IAJGS Cemetery Database under Ohio and Alliance which is located in
Stark County: http://www.jewishgen.org/cemetery/northamerica/ohio.html
There you would have found a contact regarding the Jewish Cemetery in
Alliance, OH. An e-mail address is provided and you can contact this person
for further information on the burials in the cemetery.

The second thing you should have done is look at the JOWBR database at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/

You can also look up your ancestors in the on-line Ohio Death Index:
http://ohsweb.ohiohistory.org/death//results.cfm For instance, you will
find listed Max Baer's Death Certificate, Volume #5717, Certificate #45879.
You can then order the certificate for a nominal fee on-line. Or, you can
also use the information gathered to see if the City of Alliance has a death
certificate/burial certificate. If they do, then you can order it >from
their Health Department at: http://www.cityofalliance.com/health/

Good luck,
