Renseignements sur Nilou ( Daniel ) Sternberg né en Roumanie vers 1898-1899 mais demeurant à Paris dans les années 1940/ information on Daniel Sternberg Romania/Paris #france #romania

Aline Petzold

I am looking for information regarding my father's oldest brother, Daniel, known as "Nilou" Sternberg.  He was possibly born in Botosani in 1898 or 1899 and died in 1955.  I know that he married a French girl, Gratienne Levalois and that they had onechild, a girl.  That's all I know. Any information would be helpful.

Hi from Paris, 
I reply in English to be understood by most of our fellow detectives.
When persons lived in France for some decades, as Daniel Stenberg did, there is a high probability they became French citizens.
They had to give a lot of documents for their naturalization file : parents identity, list and identity of siblings (even living in foreign countries), places they lived since they left their bith country, places where they worked, they survived WWII, etc...
This file is in French National Archives near Paris and is accessible upon a special request on their web site
File is not available on line, but you can come to scan it on place or ask for a copy, but delays are in months.
These archives are still closed due to lockdown.
For persons who lived in Paris, you can get also data in Paris city Archives :
You must understand that French policy of privacy protection does'nt fully open all these archives online and it's much more difficult to recover our parents' past.

A Facebook group dedicated to Jewish genealogy in 
Romania Moldova is helping
to conduct research. They
acquired archives from
several cities. You can write to this group. Thanks to them I have the
copy of the civil acts of the 7 brothers and sisters of my
great-grandfather, born in
Vaslui. And 
from one thing to another I found back a cousin in Israël.
happy to help.
