Grave at Washington Cemetery in Brooklyn

Laurie
 

Hello JewishGenners,
After calling every cemetery in the Brooklyn/Queens area, I have
finally located the grave of my great great grandfather. He is buried
at Washington Cemetery in Brooklyn. The cemetery gave me a “possible”
location - post 403, row one, grave one - but warned that the “post”
might not be quite correct. I wondered if anyone in this group takes
regular trips out to this cemetery, and might be willing to help me
find the correct location of my great great grandfather’s grave and
take a picture. I have been searching for him for quite some time, so
this is very exciting! I wish I could go myself, but I am in
California.
Thank you so much!

Laurie,
You can ask via telephone some questions regarding the information found in their burial files. I found out the name of the burial society for my gr. grandparents & an alternate name---Leurie/Luria (or variation) for Levine (which is what their surname became in the US). Ask specific questions, as those who check the files are not particularly forth coming with information that is not directly requested.
Regards,
Marilyn Robinson

Hi Laurie,

I'd recommend you take a look at https://jewishdata.com/ They have a
ton of Jewish gravestone pictures, including of Washington Cemetery. I
should be clear that they don't have every single gravestone in the
cemetery. The website requires a subscription, but I have one and
would be more than happy to do a quick lookup for you and send you the
gravestone picture if they have your great-great-grandfather's
gravestone photograph.

From,
Jacob Heisler

What name are you looking for

Hi All,
Thanks so much for the overwhelming response to my request for help finding a grave at Washington Cemetery in Brooklyn. Some of you pointed out that I hadn't included my great great grandfather's name nor date of death. Sorry about that! His name was Josef DUCHOWNY or possibly DUCHOWNE. He died on March 11, 1896. He is buried in section four of the cemetery, post 403, row one, grave one, or so I am told. 

Many of you suggested I look at Jewish Data. I did, and he was not to be found there. 

Thank you all so much for your interest! What a wonderful community.

Hallo Genealogy Services
 

Hello,
Yes! Thank you to Elias, Jacob and Corinne for helping me and sending pictures of the graves from JewishData. I don't have all the death dates, except for John (14 Dec 1928), so I'm hoping this helps solve some mysteries. Now I just have to get the headstones translated....off to upload them now to ViewMate. Thanks again to all.
