Cemeteries in 1800"s

Cemeteries in 1800"s

I have a couple of people who I cannot find a burial site for.

Michael Lutz, protestant probably Lutheran or Methodist, died sometime between 1885-1890.

Anna Woelfel, born 1827, and died after 1891, as they seem to make reference to her, as survivor, on her husband's death cert. but she is not buried where her husband is. She was probably Catholic. I'm pretty sure she didn't make it to the 1900 census.
Besides calling or initiating a search with every cemetery in the greater NYC are, I don't know how to track this down.

Any ideas?

Carol,
The best way is to find her death certificate. If you have an LDS library in your area order the death index for Kings county from 1891-1900 and searvh it out.

Hi Tony,

I'm in a small town in FL. Would our main Library have that resource? I've never looked, thinking online would be as good a resource available.
Is there a way of finding out what year each of the cemeteries in Kings/Queens were established?

Carol,
The LDS have libraries just about everywhere. Go to their website at:

www.familysearch.org

Spend some time at this site. Check for the closest FHC to you and also do some searching for your family names, you never know, someone may have already done a lot of your research.

Cemeteries in the NY metro area is covered very nicely in a book called "The Graveyard Shift" by Carolee Inskeep. You can probably pickit it up at www.amazon.com The book is great.

Thanks, all. I guess I will just have to write to each one. I thought if there was another way, somebody here would surely know about it.
Thanks for responding.
