To start with try the NY Times which is digital for a death notice. Sometimes
searching by the name does not work so it may also help to look at the individual
dates if you have them

Try the online databases both for individual cemeteries and the collective ones
like JOWBR and Find A Grave and JewishData. There are about a half dozen NYC
cemeteries that have their own individual databases on their sites.

Try other family members to see if they are buried in the same cemetery or a family
plot.

I don't personally recommend it but you can try phoning the major cemeteries to see
if they have the internment you are looking for. If you know the area you sort of
know which are the big ones and you can eliminate the ones that have databases.
It is a bit laborious but you might get lucky and find the grave.

This week's Yizkor book excerpt on the JewishGen Facebook Page #general

Bruce Drake <BDrake@...>
 

Among the many famous rabbinical dynasties among the Jews of Europe was the "golden
chain" of the Izhbitza-Radzin Hasidic rabbis founded in 1839 by Rabbi Mordechai
Yosef Lainer (sometimes transliterated as "Leiner"). "The Golden Chain," a chapter
in the Yizkor book of Radzyn, Poland, tells the story of Shmuel Shlomo Lainer, the
last of that line in Radzyn as the Nazis took over. Author Leib Rochman recounts
the rabbi's call on the Jews of the town to flee into the forest to join the
partisans, in order to carry the fight to the German. This is a stirring account of
a heroic effort to spirit the rabbi to safety as the Gestapo sought to hunt him
down, only to end in his death. Descendants of his later carried on the rabbinate
in B'nei B'rak in Israel. Radzyn is about 40 miles north of Lublin, near Poland's
borders with Belarus and Ukraine. In 1900, when it was still part of the Russian
Empire, its Jewish population was 2,853. There is also a Kehilalinks site for
the town: http://kehilalinks.jewishgen.org/Radzyn_Podlaski/

Re: How do you find recent burial locations--NYC? #general

Roger,

All the Jewish cemeteries in the New York metropolitan area are listed on the
website of the Jewish Genealogical Society (of New York) at www.jgsny.org. Go to
Resources -> Regional Cemeteries. Links to searchable databases are included. You
can also call most of them directly and inquire about burials.

If you know the name of the burial society, you may search the Burial Societies
Database to narrow down to those cemeteries where the society owned plots.

Pretty much all these cemeteries were operating in the time period you are asking
about.

As a non-relative, let alone descendant, I can't just ask for death certificates.

In an earlier message about the joint SRRG - Gesher Galicia project
involving a set of Czortkow-area passport application records, we
described one of the pieces of information in the record book as:

- Stated "nationality" - where the categories include: Polish, Jewish,
Russian, Greek Catholic, and Roman Catholic.

The heading used in the "nationality". All the same, these descriptions
are a mixture of nationalities and religious affiliations. The term
"Russian", however, is incorrect. The Polish word "ruska", referring
to and agreeing grammatically with "narodowosca", should have been
translated as 'Ukrainian' or 'Ruthenian'.
The section above should be rewritten more accurately as:

- Stated nationality/religious affiliation - where the categories
include: Polish, Jewish, Ukrainian (Ruthenian), Greek Catholic, and
Roman Catholic.

Locating a Jewish cemetery in the greater Munich area #germany

Steve Stein
 

I am looking for information regarding a child who was born and
unfortunately died after two days, to Holocaust survivor parents who were
residing in the F=F6renwald DP camp in Wolfratshausen, Germany in October 1948.

I recently received the certificate of death which states that the child was
born and died in Munich. The death took place in the University Children's
Hospital / Clinic on Lindwurmstrasse. However, no place of burial is listed.

Assuming that I have the complete document, where might the child have been
buried? I am new to German Jewish research so I really have no idea where a
Jewish cemetery might be in either the Munich for Wolfratshausen area, and
what condition it or its records might be in today.

I also realize that headstones for deceased infants may no longer be extant,
and if they are, may not be readable. This whole matter is very important to
me. Thank you very much.
