The Tracing the Tribe mailbag just got this interesting reader query about Romanian family ties. I'll offer some advice soon, but I also welcome suggestions from other experts out there.
I have a real problem. For some few months I've been trying to find some records of the family Iliescu from Romania. I wrote first name, day of death etc.
But nothing. I know that the "escu" is a romanian suffix. Can it be that the original surname was Ilie, Eli, Eliyahu or Elias? How can I know where else to search? Can it be sephardic? it's seems like this family was not alive at all. I'm desperate.
Can you give me an advice please?
