New Project from the Rom SIG

ROM-SIG is proud and excited to announce a new project. We are in the process of obtaining vital records (births, marriages and deaths) from the following towns in Suceava Judet  (County). If you have roots in any of these places now is your opportunity to help yourself, as well as many others in the ROM-SIG, now and in the future!


  • Burdujeni - Births, marriages & deaths 1860, birth & deaths 1861,  birth & deaths 1863, births, marriages & deaths 1864, births, marriages  & deaths 1865
  • Campulung Moldovenese - Births 1849-1893, deaths 1857-1877
  • Falticenti - Birth marriages & deaths 1862, birth marriages &  deaths 1864
  • Gura Humorului ---Births 1877-1900, deaths 1857-1909, marriages  1857-1876
  • Radauti ---Births 1857-1884, deaths 1857-1887, marriages 1870-1877
  • Solca ---Births 1896-2012, deaths 1896-2012, marriages 1899-2012
  • Suceava ---Births 1843-1906, deaths 1857-1906, marriages 1857-1877
There are over 4710 pages of records with about 10 -12 records per page.


We need to raise the money to pay for these records as they are not available from the Family History Library. Without your support we will be  unable to do this project. If you are researching family from any of these towns please join in and help!


Please donate to the Suceava Vital records Project at http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=20  


Because there is up to a two month delay before we get the financial report and we want to get the records as soon as possible please tell us what you donated at  

We need Volunteers to transcribe these records. No special language skills are needed for some of the records. Other records are in handwritten German or  Latin. Romanian translators are also needed. Please volunteer at http://tinyurl.com/vol-transcriber  and  help us to help you!

  1. Sirs:
    Do you provide support in delineating family histories? I have started an attempt to gather information on my family roots and would appreciate any help.
    My father was from Tecuci (Halpern) and my mother from Bacau (Sigler).
    Sincerely,
    Prof. Pinchas Halpern MD
