Judy Brodkey
 

I would appreciate your help in reading a name on a birth record.  The
parents of the baby's mother are Nuchim Wolf and a woman's name we can't
yet figure out.  I tried to darken the image but we're still having
trouble deciphering it.

The image is on Viewmate at

Please respond via ViewMate.

Thank you very much.

The swift response to my request for help translating the beautiful old map of
Bessarabia into English means I now have a complete translation, thanks to a
generous volunteer in Israel and another >from Germany. This is the beauty of
JewishGen!

Now the project goes to a graphic designer, to see if/how we can create an
English twin. I will post it if/when we are successful.

This is one extraordinary community.

MITTEILER info required - Reward for Assistance #romania

I will offer a reward of $100USD if someone can help me trace the following
information:

I have had help >from several researchers who helped me uncover a lot of family
information but no luck yet on this particular one.

My Great Grandmother was Fanni Mitteiler., also written as Mittheiler or
Mitheiler. This is a very uncommon name in Hungary/Romania. I recently connected
with people >from that family and we are pretty sure we are related but I have
been unable to find the documents to back it up. Both of us have done Ancestry
DNA, I have my results, one of my connections >from that family should have hers
soon.

Fanni was married to Majer Berger born circa 1837 in Szamossalyi and died
March 25, 1909.

Many of the Mitteiler family were >from Tasnad, or Nagy Karoly or Tisza Korod or
Nagyvarad/Oradea or Kolozsvar or Czegeny

Ideally a birth record for Fanni Mitteiler or the marriage record for Fanni and
Majer which shows her parents names.

Thank you

Place: Beth El Synagogue Learning Center 5225 Barry St. W. St. Louis
Park, Minnesota 55426
