Re: Access to Romanian records... #romania

Rosanne Leeson
 

Dear Fellow Rom-SIGgers,

This is a brief response to an interesting note sent to the List
regarding writing to Archives and local repositories in Romania. The
sender was certainly trying to be kind and helpful, however there is
some clarification needed, as it could be misleading. And, I have
checked with our archival contacts in Romania to make sure that what I m
going to report is the current situation.

According to Dr. Dobrincu the National Archive and its branches do not
respond to mail requests for family information as they have neither the
staff, nor the funds to do that. As to the local repositories, they
mainly contain records more recent than 100 years, and access to those
are strictly forbidden by the Romanian Privacy Laws. In some towns
they possibly have records >from 1900-1911, but those may only be
obtained *>from abroad* by a direct family member, and proof of that is
required, with full information re the person or persons you are
researching. Those records will only be excerpts and not full records.

Hopefully, some day the situation economically and otherwise may change,
and we will be the first to share the good news and cheer!

Name Changes database NEW on IGS website #austria-czech

Dear Friends,

Name Changes database NEW on IGS website
The names of some 300,000 Israelis who legally changed their name after
Israel became a country can be searched at the Israel Genealogical Society
(IGS) website at=A0http://www.isragen.org.il/siteFiles/1/618/7927.asp.
The results are the name of the person before and after the change and the
date (sometimes only month/year) when the name change was posted in the
Yalkut Hapirsumim (Official Publications) of the Israeli government.
You must search for names using the Hebrew alphabet.
If you do not know how to spell a name in Hebrew, use Stephen P. Morse's
English to Hebrew transliteration at
http://stevemorse.org/hebrew/eng2heb.html.
The project was made possible by a grant in 2010 by the International
Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies
We hope this serves all family researchers

Records added to the 1924 Bessarabia Jewish Business Directory #bessarabia

Harvey Kabaker
 

Fellow Bessarabia researchers,

Now on line >from >from the 1924 Romanian business directory are nearly
11,000 records showing names, occupations, types of business and
addresses for Jews active in commercial life following World War I in
eight of the nine Bessarabian judetse (counties) of the time.

Recently added to the database are grocers, teachers, local officials,
stone carvers, butchers, bakers, innkeepers, lawyers, peddlers, rabbis,
and many others who apparently were Jewish and worked in the early 1920s
in the counties of Orhei (Orgeev), Cetatea Alba (Akkerman) and Cahul.

Links to data files for more than 600 cities, towns, villages and
hamlets in eight counties are on the Bessarabian Databases page at
http://www.jewishgen.org/Bessarabia/Databases.html.

Please click the title, "Bessarabia Business Directory, 1924-25," to see
a detailed description of the project.

You can scroll and use your browser's Search function in the html
versions. In addition, you may download .xls files to your computer for
searching, re-sorting or other functions available in the Excel format.

Work continues on listings for the capital, Chisinau (Kishnev), and the
surrounding judet of the same name. New data will be posted as soon as
possible. We also plan to put the information into a searchable database
on the JewishGen site.

Again, sincere thanks must go to the volunteers helping me transcribe
the data:

Ala Gamulka, Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Ayana Kimron
Paola Khalili, London, UK
Alison Shein, Arlington, VA, USA
Flo Wolf, Atlanta, GA USA

and much appreciation to Yefim Kogan for his continuing guidance and
review of the project.

We could use more help. If you can spare as little as half an hour at a
time over the coming weeks, please get in touch with me off list.

Harvey Kabaker, Silver Spring, MD USA, project manager
