Seeking descendants of Fanny (nee GARTENLAUB) and Yosef David LEIBOVICY, shown in this photo with their children in Piatra Neamt, Romania, in 1921.

Daughter Surica married David (surname unknown) in Galati, Romania, in 1928.

Thank you,

4/23/2014 6:01 AM My only comment on this picture is that in Romania the name would have been written as LEIBOVICI (sounds like Leibovich). If you are searching for records do not look for LEIBOVICY because the pronunciation in Romanian would be impossible.
4/30/2014 1:04 PM I find the following website very helpful when it comes to researching family links in Romania: http://genealogyindexer.org Use wildcards like Leibovi* and use Romanian spelling, Iosif instead of Yosef. Hungarian and German variations (József, Josef, Joseph, Galatz instead of Galaţi) may lead to different results. Surname comes before the given name: e.g. Leibovici Iosif. Good luck :)
2/4/2020 8:33 AM My great-grandmother was Lara Leibovici, married to Israel Silverman. She was born in 1876, and her death certificate shows her father's name was Leib Leibovici. My great-grandparents immigrated from Piatra Neamt to the US in 1902. I know almost nothing about the Leibovici family, except that some of them made their way to Canada from PN. I wonder if Yosef in your picture is a sibling or first cousin of my great-grandmother?
