Re: Did my maternal grandmother convert to Judaism? #general

You can try to get your grandparents' marriage certificate; it should have the name of the rabbi who officiated at the ceremony, if they were married in a synagogue. That could at least be a starting point to try and figure out what the religious status was for your grandmother at that time.

Alternatively, you could try and find a wedding announcement in a local newspaper for the couple, to see where they were married. You could then check to see if the synagogue still might have records from that time period.
