Romania SIG #Romania Re: Help with locations #romania


Dear Rosanne,

I appreciate your letter "Help with location " and certainly I am
proud being born in Dorohoi. My daughter Monica was in Dorohoi in the last 2
years, despite that she was born in Timisoara. But there is a sentimental
attraction to visit a place where your Mother, Father and your husband were
I want to tell you that Dorohoi was a county until the comunists came and
they abolished it and gave it to Botosani.Therefore, if you need papers, the
people who lived in Dorohoi county should go in Botosani. Indeed, Hertza and
Darabani were in Dorohoi County.
I am jelous Roseanne !

Dear Richard,

Botosani, is both a city and a county in Romania. Dorohoi and Darabani
are both also in Botosani County. This is the far northeastern county of
Romania on the border with Ukraine.
Hertsa is now in Ukraine, co-opted by the Soviets, but was also originally
in the same areain Romania.

The Rom-SIg is working on records for Hertsa, and also Botosani and other
towns in the region. We hope to have them on the All Romania Database of
JewishGen as soon as the work is finished. Cemetery records for Botosani
are already on the JOWBR site. We also need volunteers to assist in the
database creations. Or, if one is unable to do that, then donations to
help us acquire more records are very welcome indeed! We need help to
help us help you!

I hope this will help,
Rosanne Leeson
