Hello everyone, and thank you very much to everyone who responded to
my question. I did not have time to answer everyone personally.

The towns were identified thanks to God:
TRANVENET =3D Tarnaveni
Domravent =3D Dumbraveni
Tergo-Morah District =3D Targu Mures District

Vivian Kahn and Sarah Feuerstein stated that it would be difficult to
obtain a certificate >from 1937, due to the protection of privacy laws.

I have her direct granddaughter who can sign the application - is not
that enough?

Also, can anyone guide me to which exact archive I am addressing, and
how do I do it? I have no experience with Romanian archives.

Thank you
David Nesher

(Hungary) Yad Vashem Project to Identity 80% of Hungarian Jews Murdered in Holocaust #hungary

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Haaretz wrote about a Yad Vashem project searching 200,000 Hungarian Jews
murdered in the Holocaust whose names were previously unknown. Not only did
project identify people by name, but also learned about their birth dates,,
where they grew up, learn parent's names and other family members names.
The project is called the Names Recovery Project which collected the names
of Hungarian Jews murdered in the Shoah for Yad Vashem for the past decade.
They added 225,000 names to the 260,000 names they had in 2007 resulting in
80 percent of the Hungarian victims having names. They compiled their own
list of Jews who were deported by using archive searches of census records,
correspondence, employer records , confiscated property and more. The
archives were located in Hungary, Romania and Serbia, all part of Hungary
during World War ll. The names of hundreds of thousands of Jews were
entered into the Yad Vashem database. These were not names provided by
Pages of Testimony but >from documents in archives.

Yad Vashem is using the same model for other name gathering projects for
Poland, the former Soviet Union and the Balkan nations.

JDC ("The Joint") Emigration Service Index Cards added to JRI-Poland database #poland

Stanley Diamond
 

Jewish Records Indexing - Poland and the American Jewish Joint
Distribution Committee (JDC) are pleased to announce a
collaborative agreement to enable searches of the JRI-Poland
database to display links to selected holdings in the JDC
Archives Names Database.

The JDC Archives is the institutional repository of the American
Jewish Joint Distribution Committee, a humanitarian relief
agency established in 1914.

The Archives' website (http://archives.jdc.org) includes
exhibitions, photo galleries, finding aids, and topic guides as
well as a searchable database of its digitized collections of
almost 3 million pages of documents, 71,000 photographs, and a
Names Index of half a million names of individuals and families
assisted by JDC.

The aim of the JRI-Poland/JDC agreement is to bring the
remarkable historical records of the JDC Archives to the widest
audience as well as to utilize the multi-faceted JRI-Poland
search engine options to dramatically increase the potential for
finding cards of interest to researchers.

The initial collection - now searchable on the JRI-Poland
database - includes 8200 name entries in the "JDC
Emigration Service Index Cards: Warsaw Office, 1945-1949."

While only a relatively small percentage of entries list place
of birth, they include towns currently in Poland, Belarus, Latvia,
Lithuania, Latvia, Ukraine, Germany, Moldova, Czech Republic,
Slovakia, France, Italy and Austria.

About half the cards include "destination" (listing more than
fifty countries).

Researchers are encouraged to search the JRI-Poland database for
possible family members. Use the default "All Regions" in the
"Geographical Region" in the search field.

The board of JRI-Poland expresses its profound appreciation to
the JDC for enabling us to share this important information with
the research community.
