JCR-UK SIG #UnitedKingdom Manchester Talk on Romanian research and archives #unitedkingdom



SUNDAY, 23RD MARCH 2014 AT 2.00pm
VENUE: United Synagogue, Meade Hill Road, Manchester M8 6LS

Marcel Glaskie will be in Manchester in March and will be giving an in-depth
talk on Jewish Records in Romania.
This is unique as there is so little available on the internet to people
researching their Romanian background.

Marcel was very active in Manchester in the 1970s assisting Bill Williams
with retrieving large amounts of Jewish archive material for Central Library
Archive Department, in both Manchester and Liverpool.    He also transcribed
all the Jewish families in the 1871 Manchester Census.  .   In addition was
also the founder and first secretary of the Manchester Branch of the Jewish
Historical Society of England and sat on the executive committee in
London.   In those early years, he did manage to enter both the Prestwich
and Pendleton old Jewish cemeteries. Marcel has lived in Israel for the
past 25 years and has dedicated his time since then to researching his
Romanian background and collating as much information as he has been able to
get regarding Romanian research in general.  

His talk includes Jewish settlement in Northern Romania, Jewish property
(private and public), trade directories 1924/1925 for all Romania, Jewish
community records, Municipal/State records and Jewish cemetery records,
Jewish Schools, Romanian census, military records and more.   As Romanian
records generally are so sparse, Marcel?s research work and records are of
the utmost interest to anyone with a background in Romania.    Details of
the talk are as follows:
