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.

RE: Hartnig Grave Photo
Happy to do it, Jeff.
Can you please call the cemetery and ask for the exact location? Some of the gardens are quite large so if you can repost with the lot and grave numbers in the Garden of Esther that would be most helpful.
Thanks and Happy Holidays

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

No idea - It just said New Britain

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!
