You could try either Calvary Cemetery or Cypress Hills.
They both may not be able to help you without a year of death.
I have found Cypress Hills staff to be very helpful and do have a person who
researches old burials but I am not sure they would charge you for this
lookup as it spans 10 years.
I have found Calvary to be less helpful but last I knew they had catalogued
all the "grave owners" into a data base. Again, without a more specific
year of death, they may not be able to help you.
Hope this helps.

I found out that my Elizabeth Christiansen isnt buried at Greenwood or All
Faiths Lutheran Cemetery. I know she died between 1910 and 1920 and her
last know address was Guernsey st in Brooklyn on the 1910 census. Im going
to look online but thought the wonderful people on this list could name some
other cemeteries where brooklyn people were buried. I know she immigrated
in 1885 with her son. Her husband commit suicide in Denmark, so she was
widowed when she came to the US. She had 2 sons, August and Hermann. I
found Hermann living in Oyster Bay, Long Island on the 1930 census...Is
Oyster Bay a hamlet of Hicksville? I assume Hermann is buried there but not
sure his mom would be as I think she died before he moved to Long Island.
thanks in advance for your cemetery suggestions.
