New Jersey Jewish Cemetaries #usa

Hi,

I am searching for my grandmother's grave I only know she died in
October 1974, probably in the Bronx. I have been told she is buried in
Southern NJ, but that may be a reference to south of NYC.

QUESTION: Is there a complete list of Jewish cemeteries located
in New Jersey?

You could also try contacting one of the Jewish genealogical societies in New Jersey for more information.

The IAJGS did a comprehensive listing http://iajgscemetery.org/usa/new-jersey/

but it is long and sorted by town. 

If she was buried in New Jersey it could well be because she was part of a burial society that had its plot in New Jersey.  I ran into a similar situation a few months back when I was tracing someone and it turned out there was a Bronx Ladies Auxiliary that had a plot in a smaller cemetery in New Jersey.

Is she buried do you think with your grandfather?  Sometimes following other family members gets you to the right grave.

I believe under the NYC privacy laws you are entitled to a copy of your grandmother's death certificate.  It will have to wait till the current public health crisis is under control but then you can try ordering a copy of her death certificate as it should show the details on her burial.

Otherwise try the databases such as JOWBR on JewishGen, FindaGrave, BillionsGraves, etc. in hopes one of them captured the details.  I assume you already checked the newspapers to see if the family placed a death notice.

Funeral homes some times have the records but 1974 could be a challenge to find the funeral home to begin with.

Hope this helps and gives you a few ideas.

I would look at Riverside Cemetery in Saddle Brook. A number of my ancestors who lived in NY (Bronx, Manhattan, Queens, etc.) were buried there. Likely as Allan said, their societies had plots there.

Dani--It would be more helpful if you provided the name of your grandmother. Some of us know the ins and outs of online research (and Allan Jordan suggested a few) to actually find the information you seek.
