Re: Obtaining birth certificate from Bucharest #romania

"Birth certificates and marriages are released at the request of the
holder by the Romanian embassy/consulate. One may also obtain such a
record at the city hall in the city where the event was registered.

Note that, as I understand the current regulation, those types of
documents are only released to the holder of the record (or the legal
guardians). This is what I've read - if there are any exceptions to
the rule, you need to inquire at the local embassy/consulate. Death
certificates can be released also to the family members.

Civil state registers are transferred after passage of 100 years
period to the local branch of the Romanian National archives in each
county (judet). At the archives the registers are public, anyone may
browse or take photos."

It will be extremely hard for you to get the death record. Klara would
have an easier time in getting it

I echo this request... and wonder also about the possibility of
obtaining post-war death certificates. My cousin Klara, born near
Czernowitz/Cernauti/Chernivtsi, was in Transnistria during the war,
and eventually got to Bucharest. She married and had a baby, born c.
1946 in a Bucharest hospital. Klara once related, weeping, that a
nurse informed her that the baby had died and was "taken away." She
was never told where (or if) the baby was buried.

I had recently found a 1937 legal notice in the Brooklyn Eagle, listing
the unknown (to me) names of family members, mentioned in a
great aunt's will >from 1933. Through the wonderful efforts of one of
our own, Allen Jordan, records of the will were found in Kings County
Surrogates Court, Brooklyn, NY. The case was open until --
amazingly -- 1968!

1. If the case remained open during and following World War II,
would that mean the family survived the war or simply that they had
not yet been found?

2. Who would be entitled to that money if that branch of the family
was never located?

3. Does anyone have any additional information about the following
individuals (but, especially >from 1938 on):

The male given name Sira or Sirach #germany

Roger Lustig
 

Until the other day I'd never encountered the male given name Sira or
Sirach outside of the author of the apocryphal book of Ecclesiasticus
and some strange Talmudic discussions.

But behold: Sirach COHN of Deutsch Eylau, West Prussia (now Ilawa,
Poland), deceased at age 63 in 1863. In a marriage record >from a few
years later he's referred to as Sarrach COHN, but clearly the same person.

I'd be interested to hear of families in which this name occurred,
especially >from generation to generation, and of any ideas as to what
such a tradition might represent.

Mind you, I'm already grateful: an unusual name like this could make
tracing a COHN family much easier.

UNTERBERGER>BALSAM>ZEGER>WIESER Connections & legalities #general

Marilyn Robinson
 

I had recently found a 1937 legal notice in the Brooklyn Eagle,
listing the unknown (to me) names of family members, mentioned in a
great aunt's will >from 1933. Through the wonderful efforts of one of
our own, Allen Jordan, records of the will were found in Kings County
Surrogates Court, Brooklyn, NY. The case was open until--amazingly---
1968!

1.If the case remained open during and following World War II,
would that mean the family survived the war or simply that they had
not yet been found?
2. Who would be entitled to that money if that branch of the
family was never located?
3. Does anyone have any additional information about the
following individuals (but, especially >from 1938 on):

Tobias Gutman UNTERBERGER-b. 1876 (father was Mendel Unterberger
(not Chaim), mother Beile (possibly Gutman)

His three (3) wives+children with each:
1. Beila Ruchla WIESER (divorced her)
Children: Izak Weiser Unterberger (aka Shmuel Itzak or Isaac) (b. 1903)
-- lived in Krakow in the 1930's

Naftali Hirsh Weiser Unterberger (b. about 1907)

2. Frejda BALSAM (died about 1927) -- (Tarnow??)
Children: Mendel Balsam Unterberger (b. about 1903; aka Mendel Yosel,
and Joseph) -- lived in Tarnow/Pogwizdow, Barak 7 (about 1937)
