Mount Lebanon has five Lakritz burials on their online database.  You can check yourself at

You can search by name and by society without names so you can see all those buried in that society and you may find other names
you are related to .

Click on contact and you will get address,
Phone, and email address to contact them.
Some NYC cemeteries will take a photo for you for free or a small fee so let them know you are in Israel.

Good luck. If you need more suggestions, you can email me privately.

My husband's grandfather Chaim Mendel Lakryc/Hyman "Max" Lakritz, had many half-siblings but only shared both parents with one brother, Binyamin/Benjamin Lakryc/Lakritz.  According to his Polish birth record, he was born in Chorzele, Poland in 1885.  His parents were Wolf Berek Lakryc and Rajzla Biszberger.  This is the only record I have found for him.

I recently found the graves of Benjamin and Rebecca Lakritz on Find A Grave in the Mt. Lebanon Cemetery in Glendale, NY but I do not have a photo.  The memorial lists Benjamin's birthdate as 1887 and that he died in 1976.  Unfortunately, I have not been able to find any other records for Benjamin or Rebecca.

If anyone has any information that could help in my search for Benjamin I would be most appreciative.

Thanks in advance,
