Ganz Romania Trip #romania

rrrrgggg@...
 

My husband Bob and I had a wonderful trip to Romania this past July. Our
guide Dan Jumara took us, at our request, to famous tourist sites such
as Brasov to see "Dracula" Vlad the Impaler's Castle and the medieval
city of Sighisoara as well as ancestral towns.I felt that it was
important to get the general feel of a country and people. In Sighisoara
teenagers performed classic Romanian dances in the city center and a
chorus of adult women sang traditional Romanian songs.

A highlight of our trip was a visit to the Salt Mine in Praid.
Asthmatic children ,and children with other respiratory illnesses, are
brought here for treatment. The children stay in the salt mine equipped
with playgrounds with swing sets , inflatable slides, room to roller
skate, play ping pong, use computers etc., for 4-5 hours at a time.
Just breathing the "salt air" in this cool environment helps you
breathe easier. An amazing and unexpected experience.

We visited the ancestral town of Podu Iloaiei, just outside of Iasi. I
photographed homes >from the 1800s once part of the Jewish Quarter. This
area is now a Gypsy neighborhood. I had to photograph these buildings
from the car. We were under close scrutiny by the new inhabitants and
felt that we were not welcome.

We did visit the Jewish Cemetery in Podu Iloaiei where I photographed as
many of the upright or partially upright tombstones in this disheveled
cemetery. I had to stop as I got closer to the shepherd's house where
his dogs barking became incessantly louder and menacing. It must have
been a 100 degree day. I could not read many of the names that were in
Hebrew,but I thought that maybe if I get them translated, people, not
just myself, might recognize family names. I was not sure as to whether
Romania Sig had a project of this nature or not and I was there. The
sheep at times wander through this cemetery leaving "poop" in between
tombstones. My husband said Kaddish in memory of this once vibrant
community. We were looking for markers related to the ILOWITZ family.

Financial woes in Romania combined with possible anti-semitism has left
the repair of this cemetery and the restoration of the great synagogue
in Iasi in limbo.

We did visit the city of Iasi and toured streets and buildings that
existed , such as the Jewish Theater, when my grandfather Julius
JACKOWITZ/JANKOWITZ was a young man in the late 1800s -1911. Some
Jackowitz records, (WW I Draft Cards, U.S. Census ), also mention
Negresti as an area associated with this family. N.B. Stray dogs do roam
the streets, but for the most part they sleep during the heat of the
day. At night you must use more caution.

I have questions concerning vital records,etc in Romania. According to
our guide Dan Jumara, these records have not been photographed.

The records are in Romanian for the most part. As I found out,
Romanian is a very difficult language to understand even if you are
knowledgeable in other Romance languages. As Dan explained, Romanian
is based on an"archaic" form of Latin with a few Slavic words mixed in.
My grandparents never taught Romanian to their American born 10 children
as a way of keeping some "privacy" as a couple. They only spoke Yiddish
and English to them.


Are there projects sponsored by Romania Sig to locate, photograph and
index records at the Vaslui District Branch of the Romanian Archives ?
or of the main Archive in Iasi? for Barlad, Negresti, etc. ?


So far Dan has found birth records for 2 sons of my grandmother's
older sister Pessa/Paulina SOLOMON ,(nee ABRAMS/ABRAMOWITZ? ) and her
husband Itic/Isaac/Isidor SOLOMON of Berlad/Barlad, Romania. Itic was a
carpenter. Their Romanian born son Morris J. Solomon, (1891-1967), was a
great civic leader in Brooklyn, New York.

Searching for information for the following families:

Romania: JACKOWITZ/JANKOWITZ, ILOWITZ, ABRAMS/ABRAMOWITZ (areas:
Berlad/Barlad, Iasi, Negresti)
Belarus: SANDLER, RESNICK,REZNIK, SUCHOWLIANSKY/LANSKY,
HOCHSTEIN/GAUKSTEIN
(areas include Grodno/Hrudna town and province, Bialystok, Poland,
Minsk, and Lithuania)
Western Ukraine: GANZ?GANS,LUTWAK/LUDWIG,WASSERMAN,KACZOR,KERNIK

Was the first name "Gilbert" used in Romania? #romania

Carol Rombro Rider
 

I am working on a branch of my family that is new to me. Four sisters,
Gussie SEGALL, Sheba SIEGEL, Sulina BLACK (all living in
Savannah, Georgia, USA) and Clara MOPPER (about 1930) have a brother
living back in Romania they list as Gilbert COOPERMAN.

Was the name "Gilbert" used as a first name in Romania, or is this an
"Americanization" of another name?

Thank you in advance,

Carol Rombro Rider Baltimore, Maryland USA CRomRider@...
