Books of Seven Seals in Rădăuți and Suceava (3188 km)

(Suceava, 31.07.2016 - 03.08.2016) For nearly one decade the Jewish Bukovina Vital Records stored at the civil office registry of Rădăuți remained books of seven seals to us.

 

My first attempt to recover this treasures, at that time together with my late good friend Dorin Fränkel, was as early as 2008. Of course, individual inquiries were always feasible, but a methodical research and the digitization of the entire holdings failed due to legal and/or administrative restrictions. Now, just in time for the upcoming 36th IAJGS in Seattle, I'm presenting to you the output (bold) for my last eight day's photo sessions:

Based on the mayor's authorization and assisted by his civil office registry staff, I succeeded to digitize the records by taking approx. 7,500 high resolution images.

Mayor Nistor Tatar, Edgar Hauster in August 2016
Now, we hold in our hands the full set of available vital records for Radautz and its neighboring localities Vicov and Solca, including the priceless index records! It will take us months if not years, but hopefully not another decade, to analyze the results and make them available to the public. Please check periodically the state of this project by visiting the site below and let us have your comments…! bukovina.records@gmail.com
