Thank you. Alexandra Vozick Hans

Alexandra,

I am not sure which Craciunesti you are referring to. I found several in
the Shtetl Seeker. In any case, I was in Romania this past summer and found
that the cemetaries I came across were usually well preserved. For whatever
reason, they fared a lot better that those across the border in Hungary.

There is some information on website about the business located in this
area in Transylvania, Romania. Since site is in English, you might want
to ask this site webmaster about the Jewish landmarks in this area. I
usually do, and surprisingly, no one refuses the answer, webmasters are
very polite people and they are helping a lot.

For JewishGeners who are looking for the exotic places of their
ancestors - try first search through the Web (I found Infoseek and
Yahoo as a very helpful search enginees in this matter) and just type
name of shtetl you are looking for. Results could be amazing sometimes,
and do not hesitate to talk to the site webmaster.

Good luck
