In the spirit of the day…

A blog post by Genealogist and Family Historian Deb Weiner.

When I signed up to do an October 31 blog post, I wasn’t thinking “Halloween,” I was thinking “push this task off to the very last day of the month.” But here it is, Halloween, and the irrelevance of the holiday to the Jewish tradition has not stopped me from feeling obligated to offer a Halloween-inspired blog post. Fortunately, I have a backlog ofBaltimoreJewish cemetery photos taken on my research trips for family history clients, so I have something suitably morbid to share.


Thought I’d start out with the most appropriate image (actually this photo is courtesy of Kevin Grace).

A spooky day at Rosedale cemetery.



A war story.



A love story.


Some names you might find familiar.
