Romanian Birth records #romania #records

Rebecca Racer

I'm looking for help locating my grandfather's birth record from Romania. He was born in 1923,in Maramures so my guess is that it will be in Romania and not Hungary. Has anyone used for help obtaining records? I'm looking for any feedback for any company that you've used to help obtain records before I send money.
Thank you

Maramures is a region/province in Romania. oi you know the locality of birth? Here is a list of the localities in Maramures.

Records older than 100 years would be at the Baia Mare office on National Archives. Later  ones at the civill office of the  Town Hall (Primarie) of place of birth.  The law about getting them (officially only death records can be obtained by a direct descendant) can sometimes be softened by a visit to that office.

What was Maramaros before WW I, today is split between Romania and Ukraine. Be open to the possibility of either, depending on the town.

Hi Rebecca,
My family is also from Maramures. I found a lot of information on birth dates and other info (although not the actual records) on the Arolson Archives, which would help if he was in the Holocaust. I also heard that Jewishgen still has records that are being transcribed. I wonder if the privacy laws apply to these records?
