Re: Finding people to help search in Bucharest #romania

Vivian Kahn

Those interested in procedures and practices for research in archives
throughout Romania are encouraged to join us in Salt Lake City for the
annual IAJGS conference. ROM-SIG and the
Hungarian SIG are co-sponsoring sessions by Dan Jurca, a Romanian
researcher who specializes in Jewish family research. Dan will also be
on a panel at Hungarian-Romanian luncheon with Karesz Vandor, a
genealogist and historian based in Budapest.
