Focsani, Romania #romania

Barbara S. Weitz

I have found my maternal family in Fokshon (Focsani), Romania but only back to my great grandparents who eventually came to NY.  Their name is NEIBERG (NIEBERG).  Every time I try to do a family search, I only get Scandinavian, non-Jewish results.  Any thoughts?


The Botosani research team has acquired Focsani records up to 1905 and indexed the marriages and births.
I have encountered the surname Neiberg in the records.

I highly recommend consulting Soren Goldenberg from the Botosani research team, who has access to unpublished records. He managed to track down the name and birthplace (Falticeni) of my great-grandmother by discovering a missing link between her and her sister – a brother who appeared in several records. All Soren had to go on were the names of my great-great-aunt and some of her children, my guess at my grandmother’s first name, possible names for their father, and the fact that they might have lived in Piatra Neamt (as it turned out, the sister had lived in Tigru Neamt). His research confirmed and revealed many names and added dozens of birth, marriage and death records and several generations to my research. You can reach Soren via the Jewish Genealogy in Romanian Moldova Facebook page ( or at the email address in this thread.
