Re: Iasi , Romania research #romania

Hello Teodora,
I thought about contacting you privately but decided that there could be others who might somehow be connected to the two families I am researching

Both of my maternal grandparents came from Iasi. My grandfather was Leon Swarttz (b. 1876); son of Fischel (b. approx 1842) and mother most probably named the equivalent of Rose. There were two other children that I know of: Max (b.1862) and Clara (b.1878) I have had no success finding any documentation regarding my great-grandmother, nor have I been able to break through the wall on Fischel's side. 

My grandmother came from a large family - there were nine children that I know of. Their parents were Wolf (Lupu) Horowitz (b. approx 1836) and Aurelia (Goldie) (b. approx 1838). Wolf's parents' names (best guess) were Isidor and Rebecca. Aurelia's parents' names per her burial record were Yaakov and Lifshe. The name Barber figures into this family and is possibly Aurelia's maiden name. I have the names and some of the birth years for the children. If that information would assist you in your research, please contact me privately.

I am hoping you might find marriage and/or birth records - but the truth is that anything you might be able to find would be most welcome. 

With thanks,
