Re: Bayside cemetery Queens, NY #usa
Thank you for all the replies. This was my very first post on the mailing list. I did find my Max in the list with the age he died, the day he was buried and the synagogue he was a member of. It was Bnai Jacob which I believe is in Queens. I have to tell you that I have not read up on how the sponsoring society determines the area of burial I don’t know if there was a headstone as he was the first on in the family to die and I have no idea what finances were. I can see it is pointless to try to send someone searching without this key info.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Do you think that the synagogue would have records? Before I received the death cert I had a librarian in Newark search obits, death index and so forth for Max and she found nothing. He did die in Beth Israel Hospital in Newark and was transported to the burial site in NY.
Can anyone verify this next statement? My mother told me that the reason Max was buried in what she referred to as Brooklyn was that religious rules or customs mandated he be buried across water from where the death took place.
Just to be sure I called again and the phone has been disconnected.
This may be a dead end for a while. If anyone has suggestions or more ideas please let me know. Getting the death cert and at least having a burial place was a big step forward for me.
