I am trying to get information about my Great Grandmother who died in Monte Video, Uraguay. I've been told that she is most likely buried at: Comite Central Israelita del Uruguay, Casilla de Correo 743, Rio Negro 1308 piso 5 Esc.5, Montevideo, Tel. 598 2 916 057, Fax. 598 2 906 562
I do not speak spanish and have had no success in trying to get any information.The people at the US embassy said that this is the closest Jewish Cemetery to Monte Video. But her brother was Catholic... I do think she was buried in a Jewish Cemetery though... Is it possible that someone could contact them for me? I am trying to find a date of birth and date of death. She went to Monte Video to visit her brother and she died while there.Her brother's last name was Wallach.
Her name was Esther (Wallach) Kaplan. She was born @ 1865 in Russia or Romania.(She may have changed her year of birth to get a passport) She died @ 1945-1946.Her last residence was NJ and I believe that is where she got her passport.Before that she resided in Connecticut for many years.
Could anyone help me?All I need is for them to contact the cemetery and see if there is an Esther Kaplan buried there.
