Burial Ledgers in the Workmen's Circle Collection (RG 575)

YIVO's Workmen's Circle Collection includes eight ledgers providing information on burials in WC plots located in ten New York metropolitan area cemeteries. Entries include name of the deceased, date of death, member/or relationship to member, and WC Branch number. More information on these Branches can be found within the Workmen's Circle Collection as well as YIVO's Landsmanshaftn Collection and the Bund Collection (RG 1400).
