Miriam Weiner Routes to Roots Collection: Bessarabia Records
Introduction to Miriam Weiner Archive Database for Bessarabia
The Miriam Weiner Archive Database for Bessarabia/Moldova is an indexing of names that appear in the summary translations Weiner created from documents that she researched in her 25+ years of working in the Moldova archives (in addition to archives throughout Eastern Europe). Data entries also came from various archive inventories and lists that Miriam received directly from the archives in Moldova as part of their collaborative efforts in creating a comprehensive database of archival holdings, first appearing in Weiner’s book, Jewish Roots in Ukraine and Moldova and now appears at the publisher’s website, www.rtrfoundation.org. Miriam has generously donated this material to JewishGen.org.
