WELCOME TO THE CZERNOWITZ BLOG OF EDGAR HAUSTER

Inspired and encouraged by the Czernowitz-L Discussion Group, we have created this site in reverence to the people of Bukovina, a region with an outstanding cultural, social and ethnic diversity.
In addition to Czernowitz-L Discussion Group Website, we would like to provide another collection point for materials (stories, histories, photographs, lists, maps, links, etc.), focused primarily on Address Books, Directories, School Registers, etc. These kind of materials may be of interest to researchers concerned with genealogy and history of the Bukovina.

In order to make the listing useful and searchable, please read the following carefully:
  • Surnames: The diversity of spelling for the names may cause difficulties, for example "Schwarzmann" could be listed as "Schwarzman" or "Svartman" or any other variation. Romanian diacritics have not been used, so please keep looking for different spellings.
  • Given names: The same problem applies to the given names, for example "Schloime" became "Sloime", "Elias" became "Ilie", "Mechel" became "Mihai", etc. Again, Romanian diacritics have not been used, so please keep looking for different spellings.
  • Occupations: JewishGen generously released the listing "Romanian Occupation Definitions - English Translations", which we have made available for download (see below). JewishGen notes "Some of these [occupation definitions] are archaic or obscure terms, no longer current. Romanian diacritics have not been used. Please note that the Romanian terms have been entered exactly as the clerks wrote them in [1936]. They are therefore subject to any mis-spellings, etc., that they might have used at that time…".
  • Streets: This column differentiates between (ro./en./ger.) cale = avenue = Chaussee, drum = way = Weg, fundatura = dead end street = Sackgasse, piata = place = Platz, poteca = pathway = Pfad, strada = street = Straße [Gasse].
  • Addresses: In order to make the listing searchable, we have brought consistency to the street names by using the Czernowitz Street Index, generously provided by Othmar Andrée (http://www.czernowitz.de/). For facilitating the attribution of the street names, we have added - if procurable - the index no., which enables you to assign the street denominations used in the Austrian, Romanian and - in part - Russian periods by using the index, which we have made available for download (see below).
