A researcher who I had hired some years ago found several Finkelsteins (my
original paternal surname) in the Vaslui Archives including the following:
JOSUP FINCHELSTAIN born 1857 (somewhat young than my great grandfather, but
somewhat older than my grandfather) changed his name to FURCUSTEANU in 1928,
married to Sura Liba, born 1863.
Also: DAVID FURCUSTEANU (a possible descendant of the above) renounced Romanian
citizenship 27 Oct. 1966
Many Romanian Jews were emigrating to Israel (as well as elsewhere) around 1966.
I am wondering if there are any FURCUSTEANU descendants >from Vaslui who may be
reading this and who may be somehow connected to my Vaslui Finkelsteins.
