Looking for family in Haifa #israel

brigitte attal
 

Hello
I heard from a cousin that survivors of our family emigrated to Israël in the 50/60 in Haifa.
Their names are Ita born Halbersztadt and Jehuda Leib Ejger from Lublin. They had no children. How can I search about them ?
Maybe there is a tomb in a cemetery. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Brigitte,
I have had some success searching for Haifa burials at
https://gravez.me/en/search
but you will need to play around with the spelling, e.g. EIGER instead of EJGER or EGER. You will have to be able to read Hebrew names. A photo of the grave is included for each entry. They also have cemeteries from some other regions of Israel.
The Haifa Chevra Kaddisha (Burial Society) used to be at http://www.kadisha.net/ but is now at http://kdh.org.il/
I did once manage to find my relative using their search engine, but it was much harder than gravez - I had to enter the surname in Hebrew (I used https://stevemorse.org/hebrew/eng2heb.html to help), and there were no photos.

https://billiongraves.com and https://www.findagrave.com/ are also worth a mention, but I haven't had any luck with them for my Haifa relatives.

I hope this helps

I see graves with those names, but not buried near one anotherץ The woman next to Yehudah Leib is Leah. Both died Yehudah Leib and Leah 1965.

My genealogy research is electric.
It follows the path of least resistance.
