Re: "Orhei, Moldova question" #general


On 04-08-01 Vladimir Tetelbaum wanted to know the present day spelling
of "Orhei."

In her "Jewish Roots in Ukraine and Moldova" Miriam Weiner lists the
town as "Orgeyev" and notes that its remaining records are located in

In his "ShtetlFinder Gazetteer," Chester G. Cohen has an entry for
"Orhaiv, Orgeyev," and notes the town is northwest of Odessa.

There is an entry for "Orgeyev" in the 1962 Columbia-Lippincott
Gazetteer which says, as part of the town's history and description, that
it was called "Orhei" when it belonged to Rumania.
