In Ancestry's New York birth index, I found a Sylvia ETKIN born 19 Jan. 1918 in Brooklyn, then searched further for a Sylvia with that birth date. Found in the California death index
Wow! I had found the index entry in the Ancestry's NY birth index, but since I could not be sure about it, I had set it aside. I have not come up with the Idea of searching for all Sylvias worldwide with that birth date! And luckily her obituary is very verbose, as if it was written for the need of future genealogists in mind. 

Thank you so much!
