Did my maternal grandmother convert to Judaism? #general


Joan Jacobson
 

I was born and raised in Chicago, as was my mother and grandother, Barbara Baltes, who was married to my Grandfather, David Rosenfeld, who was Jewish. It is significant, for if Barbara Baltes never converted, then my mother, Evelyn Rosenfeld Schiller and my sister and I are not considered Jewish. Barbara Baltes, who died in her 20’s, is buried in St. Marys Catholic cemetery in Chicago. I do not know if her parents did not know of her conversion (if it occurred), or if my grandfather did not object. Everyone in my family who might know is dead. Is there any way to find this information out. Thank you.
