Although I am unable to answer your questions about Romanian archives, except to
note previous correspondence on ROM SIG about the current difficulties in obtaining
anything >from those archives, I did note among the names you mention >from Craiova
My gggrandmother Mariane (aka Marie) HASSAN nee ESKENASI died in Vienna in 1891 at the age of 78. According to the record of her
death in German she was "zustandig nach Bukarest". I interpret this as being she was a citizen of Bucharest, even though she
lived in Vienna. This citizenship of Bucharest means one of three things: either she, her father or her husband was born there
(maybe more than one of these 3). To date the follow-up action to discovering this was to place these names on the Jewish
Genealofy Family Finder (JGFF) with Bucuresti as the location, and to subscribe to the ROM-SIG mailing list ( I had already
subscribed to the Sefard SIG list).
May I sugest that you search for ESCHENAZI in the JGFF with Romania as the country and using the D-M soundex. You should find a
few entries, including one >from Craiova.
