I am seeking information about ancestors that may have lived in Kishinev
(Chisinau, Moldava) in the late 1700s and early to mid-1800s. Can anyone
tell me how far back the records of birth, death, census, etc go for this
area and where to find them? I have been told that one ancestor was named
Leibele ("Little Lion") KISHINISKI. He had a son who eventually assumed the
surname RITEVSKY. Leibele had a brother named Meishele who had sons who
assumed surnames of BERNSTEIN, SHAPIRO, FRIEDBERG, and MOZESSON. That is all
I know. Any help would be appreciated.
