Seeking information on my Greenberg Ancestry from Herzta Dorohoi #romania


Hi All
I have some information on my Greenberg ancestors but have been unable to make any connection with descendants.  I am seeking any information on a Brana Greenberg daughter of Chaim and Pearl. She was married twice. First husband was Luis Rentzler and second was Zelic or Zelinger. Seeking any and all information on her and her descendants. I don't know what happened to her other then that she was from Hertza Dorohoi. There is also a sibling Joseph who died in the shoa. Joseph had a daughter Eva Schwartz. The only information that I have on her is that at some point she was living in Israel where she died in 1997. I don't have a death record nor do I know if she had any kids. Any help and suggestions would be fantastic.

Dear Sarah, 
Is not common to see requests from Herta, and I am happy to know you as my family is also from there.
Not sure if you know FamilySearch microfilmed -and now has in digital- a lot of civil and Jewish records from the town.
I have some records from the town, mostly Births 1928-1929 and Marriages 1926-1931. In fact I am leading a transcription project in
I will try to search other records I may have, for the names you are asking.
Not sure if this is your Eva Schwartz, but I manage to find a burial in Israel matching all the facts
I dont think she married or had children, as I don't see any reference to "Dear wife or mother" in the stone.
Will keep you posted.
Best regards
Daniel Horowitz


I hadn't realized that having family from Hertza was uncommon. Although I do not share surnames with anyone on this thread, my maternal ggfather was Saul Feiner, born about 1860 in Hertza.  I have no information about the Feiner family, beyond the name of his father (Aaron) as written on his gravestone.  He married Mollie Shaies of Dorohoi. I have a fair amount of information about the Shaies family because I am related to Monica Talmor's husband, albeit a bit distantly.

If you have any leads on the Feiner family, I would truly appreciate it.
