Family research in Rezina, Moldova: ROITMAN / SHTIVELBERG #bessarabia


Eli <eli_salomon@...>
 

Hello Bessarabia SIG,

I wanted to ask for your help in searching for records of the family of my great grandfather, Bencion
ROITMAN, and his wife, Toba SHTIVELBERG.  They lived in Rezina, Moldova, where my grandmother
Rachel ROITMAN and her siblings were born: Yehiel ROTIMAN, Bianca ROITMAN, Ruben ROITMAN,
Sona (Nathan) ROITMAN, and Moishe ROITMAN.  Bencion ROITMAN also had an earlier marriage
(wife name, unknown) with at least two children:  Shmuel (Shmeel) ROITMAN and Yosif ROITMAN. 
Bencion was allegedly the hazan in the Rezina synagogue.

I'd be especially interested to access the Rezina records and learn more about family ancestry. 
Unfortunately, I believe it is necessary to have a specialist locally access the records, and I'd
appreciate any advice in doing that (all recommendations are greatly appreciated).  Likewise, I'd
appreciate any thoughts on places where I may be able to locate records online (or any offices I
can email for further information).

This is my first time posting in any SIG -- please excuse any inadvertent faux pas!

Hi everybody, Hi Eli,

I am sending this email to the group, because it may help other researchers
to discover their towns, ancestors.

Here is some clues of how to access records of Rezina and other towns.

Go to JewishGen.org, Login to your account, go to DATABASES / Complete List
of Databases / Romania/Moldova / The JewishGen Romania Database.

You see a place you can search the database. Instead of Surname on the left
upper dropdown choose Town, and put Rezina at the right upper cell. That
will search for ALL records with town Rezina!

Also at the Region: choose Bessarabia, and press Search the JewishGen
Romania Database.

You should see 81 record - people who are also Researching Rezina - that is
very important part! Also 13 databases with town of Rezina. Among them
491 records >from Duma Voters list, 190 records >from Business Directory of
1924, 30 Birth records, 25 Death records, 871 - Revision List records, etc.
etc.

Eli, there are many records of ROITMANs in that search: Marriage records,
Revision Lists, etc.
Also, most likely you will not find any records in Rezina, they are in
Kishinev Archive, and we have many of them.

I hope that helps.
Please let us know if you find your ancestors that way.

All the best,
Yefim Kogan
