Bio and Links
I began using findagrave primarily to find and memorialize my family members, many of whom I do not even know the place of burial. I also enjoy fulfilling photo requests. Since many other genealogists have similar goals and issues locating family, I have expanded my efforts and have begun adding all the memorials (with grave photos) for the Jewish cemeteries in my local area.

Due to copyright rules, I do not post obituaries. However, if you have one for a memorial I have posted, e-mail it to me and I would be glad to keep it on file to help with researching family members. I do basic genealogical searches to add maiden names, missing birth or death dates, and link parents with children, where possible. In this way, I hope to provide the basics for anyone searching for family.

I will gladly transfer management of any of my memorials to family members (please provide your relationship).

Please use the edit function, if you are providing additional information or corrections for a memorial.

Use of my grave photos is for non-profit purposes only, with proper photo credits to me.

I photographed her headstone this morning. Next to her was her husband. Do you want to create a memorial and I will upload the photo.

Ruth Leibowitz memorial page

Thank you for the photos you added and for the SAC. However, your gravestone photo shows "Leibowitz" as surname used on monument . I declined your SAC as last name used (see Find A Grave guidelines/help with Find A Grave) should be what is shown on gravestone. I revised her bio to mention "unknown Quist" that apparently was another spouse - though no specifics given in her obit. So far I have not been able to find any further information about that spouse

Best regards

RE: Budnick
No, the only thing that was on the card was "removed to New Britain" I'm going to leave them where they are right now, though we don't have a stone. I checked with JewishGen Burial Records and it says Norwich Hebrew Benevolent - I wonder where they really are!

Hi -

I note that you have Alan Edwin Budnick linked to parents - Herman and Esther Budnick - both of whom I found listed in a book as being buried in the Norwich Hebrew Benevolent Association Cemetery in Preston, CT.

I have been working with the caretaker there and she can't find a record for Esther and noted that Herman had been removed to New Britain.
