missing MEISTER death on all but one database #general


Marty Meyers <martymeyers@...>
 

I am looking for the death record of Anna MEISTER, wife of Abraham MEISTER and
daughter of Isaac Abramowitz and his wife Pessa.

I found her (on familysearch) as having died December 26, 1932 in Kings County,
NY but I cannot find any confirmation or even a trace on ItalianGen.org,
Ancestry or any of the grave databases.

How should I interpret this? If necessary, I can shlep into NYC and look at
microfilm #2070587 but I'm wondering if anyone has any other suggestion/path to
try tracking down her grave.

Shana Tovah everyone!

Marty...indeed there is a death certificate you can send for...and you
can find it two ways:

First, when I queried Italiangen.org I used the wildcard, as I knew that
oftentimes vowels are transcribed incorrectly. So looking for m*ster, anna
produced: Anna Mefster, death certificate 24925, Kings County, 12/26/32.

Second, if you look on the right column of the FamilySearch lookup,
you'll see "reference ID, cn 24925". The cn is the certificate number,
and you can send for it with that information.
The death certificates usually contain the cemetery information.

Happy Hunting!

Shana Tovah and may this year bring peace and joy to all

Marty Meyers asked about locating a death record for Anna Meister (died 26 Dec
1931 in Brooklyn, NY) and mused about checking FamilySearch microfilm.

Be advised of two things: one may still certainly go to a Family History Center
or affiliate and check microfilm (if they decided to keep their film rolls on
long-term loan), but one may no longer borrow rolls >from the Family History
Library in Salt Lake City (due to issues with availability of microfilm and
maintenance microfilm readers they have stopped lending as of last week).

Never fear, however! It turns out that the BMD certificates for New York City
have been digitized by FamilySearch and are available to be viewed via
computers at Family History Centers or Libraries. They may also be available
at affiliate libraries and centers.

For Anna Meister's death certificate, go to the catalogue on FamilySearch:
https://www.familysearch.org/catalog/search
Enter Brooklyn for the place and then click on the appropriate Brooklyn (United
States, New York, Kings, Brooklyn). Click Search. A list of items in their
catalogue for this location will be displayed. Scroll to the bottom of the page
and select vital records, then "Brooklyn, death certificates, 1919-1949"
<https://www.familysearch.org/search/catalog/758153?availability=Family%20History%20Library >
[Shortened URL: https://goo.gl/L41RFe ]

The microfilm roll (2,070,587) of interest includes a camera icon (all in this
collection do). That means the certificates have been digitized.

Find a Family History Center near your home and make sure to take a thumb drive
with you so you may download the digitized image.

I have visited a small Family History Center near my home twice in the last
couple of weeks to acquire birth, marriage and death certs. This easy access
has substantially changed my research process!

Dear Cousins,

Mary Meyers is looking for the death record of Anna MEISTER. He has the date
as December 26, 1932 and location of death as Kings County >from Family Search,
but can't find her on italiangen.org or other databases.

She is in the italiangen.org database as 'Anna Mefster." I found her by doing
a wild card search with the last name M*R and using A for the first initial.
The certificate number is 24925, and the date and location match.

Regards,

Ira

Hi Marty,

If you search ItalianGen using a wild card search and keying M*STER
you will find the index record as Mefster Anna 68y Dec 26, 1932 24925 Kings
