IGRA Website-Updated Resource Guide-The Holocaust in France #general

Elena Bazes
 

The updated version of "The Holocaust in France: A Resource Guide" by
Jean-Pierre Stroweis is now available on the IGRA website.

Jean-Pierre Stroweis has updated an amazing compilation of references
to the Holocaust in France. Some materials are in French, others in
English some are in both. There are links to websites as well as
references to books. In addition to background, descriptions and explanations
there are lists of names with information regarding those people.

If you are researching this time period in France these are important
resources for you to explore, and for all of us a reference to help us
grasp the enormity of this time in our history.

To view the Guide, go to

http://genealogy.org.il/holocaust-france-resource-guide/

On a regular basis we add to our resource collection. All of our resources are
connected to genealogy, but not all are connected directly to genealogy in Israel.
In the Resources Section you can find materials to help you with research in many
regions of the world, including Israel.

Origin of STURZA family name in Romania #romania

loraxina@...
 

Hello,

I have a question about the origin of Jewish surnames in Romania. My
grandfather's last name was Sturza (Sturdza prior to immigrating),
same as the royal Sturzda castle in Miclauseni, near Iasi. Our family
lore goes two ways:

1) Our ancestors worked for the royal Sturzda family palace as
teachers and "minor managers," and somehow came to adopt the royal
family's surname.

2) Our ancestors interrmarried with a member of the royal Sturzda
family (which I have since heard is unlikely)

Does anyone have a sense of the likelihood of either of these
possibilities for Jewish folk in Romania, or know how else a Jewish
STURZA could have come to be?

Many thanks for your time!
