Veretena Family - Chotin and Czernowitz #romania #ukraine


Zev Cohen
 

My late mother Rosa's surname was Wariten, apparently a version of Veretena or similar. She was born in Czernowitz in 1920. In the Czernowitz commercial register of 1936 there appears one Mechel Veretena, baker. I believe this person might have been my maternal grandfather. 
Recently it has been brought to my attention that there was a Veretena (or similar spelling) family in the town of Chotin, not far from Czernowitz. I would appreciate any information about the Veretena family in Chotin and/or Czernowitz or elsewhere.

Hello Zev,

Chotin or Khotin, Khotyn  was for many years part of Bessarabia...  and if you do a search in Romania (Bessarabia) records you find several families in Khotin with that surname.
There are two families in Revision of 1854, 1859 and 1852.

All the best,

L'Shana Tovah.

Zev,  it was not clear what are you asking.

You probably know about Romania Database (it includes also Bessarabia records).  You can search such databases by surnames, or surnames and town, etc.  In your case you need to Search by that surname you wrote before, after that you will get all the hits in that database for such name (or very close to it)...  Look at each of these hits carefully.

All the best,

Shana Tovah,
