This database contains information on 72,844 individuals collected from various Romanian lists.

Background

This collection includes data from hundreds of miscellaneous Romanian lists.  The source data ranges from single hand-written cards with one to five names on them, to multiple-page lists of hundreds of individuals.  Space does not allow for the listing of all the individual lists, but a researcher who finds records of interest can get copies of the original data for their research.

The information was received from the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum (USHMM) in Washington DC.  If a researcher finds a record of interest, they should contact the USHMM, and give them the "Image Number" of the records of interest.

An "Image Number" will look like the following:

RG-31.004M.0014.00000150.jpg

This "Image Number" gives the following information, in order to find copies of the actual source document indicates that: 1) the collection number is RG-31.004M,  2) the roll number is 14, and  3) the actual image number is 150.  With that information, researchers will be able to access the source documents.
