Hey Talmid,
You forgot a biggie:
Rav Moshe Isserles - The ReMA on the Shulchan Aruch (1520-1572). Born and died in Cracow, Poland. He composed glosses on those paragraphs of the Shulchan Aruch in which he differs from the author, stating the Halacha as it has been decided by the Ashkenazi authorities, which is binding on Ashkenazi Jews. Rema named his glosses Mappa...
People used to go to his Kever in Krakow on the yahrzeit & dance like in Meron!

Thanks. I was in such a rush to get to the Lag BaOmer festivities that I inadvertently left it off.

Thanks for correcting. The sefer "Dvar Yom b'Yomo" also notes that R. Yosef Karo's yahrzeit, 13 Nisan, always comes out on the same day of the week as Lag B'Omer - yahrzeit of the Rama!

Thanks for that last bit of info. I love that type of information. It's no coincidence that their yahrzeits are on the same day of the week. If you have more of this type of info in the future please let me know.

There are still a lot of chasiddim traveling to the kever in Krakow for the yahrtzeit.
