Moses and Mary Wright (born circa 1864-65)

Moses and Mary Wright (born circa 1864-65)

Surnames: Wright, Schreibman
My great grandparents, Moses (born circa 1864) and Mary Schreibman (born circa 1865) Wright immigrated from Romania to Omaha Nebraska around 1895, and soon ended up in Los Angeles County.

It appears as if Max died between sometime between the 1920 and 1930 U.S. Census. I have found no 1940 U.S. Census reference for Mary Schreibman Wright, so she may have died between 1930 and 1940.

How might I find death/burial records for these grandparents?

Also, how might I find information on their parents?

Thank you.

=====

*California Death Index

Hope this helps

The evil forces can now move this thread to whatever black hole they want now, I've gotten my chance to actually answer for once.
They must be sleeping, can't believe it lasted long enough to actually research and then answer.

rcj137 my sentiments exactly! I have asked the admn to at least leave the post for 24hrs before moving, but guess it fell on deaf ears.

Actually, the original post is properly posted on USA General. The query pertains to someone who immigrated to the USA and whose whereabouts are either unknown or there are multiple locations (in this case the latter) upon arrival.

It might be wise if you KNOW a post is misplace to not respond until the post is moved to the appropriate board OR if you do reply on this board rest assured the poster will be redirected to the final resting place for the thread.

I am thinking the other poster, rcj137, found the information at www.familysearch.org That site is free to search without registering, but you do need to register to see some documents.
I know that site has the California death index, and also has some actual death certificates for some counties.
If that is where rcj137 found your death certificates, I am very impressed. When I have searched that database, the index numbers never seem to match up with the certificates!

I'm impressed as well.

I've tried repeated searches at Amcestry.com, FamilySearch.org, and GenealogyBank.com without finding this information. I'm clearly doing something wrong, and I wish I knew what it is.

Take care,
Jay
