It's All Relative: Challenges of Romanian Research (Webinar)

  • 14 Aug 2021
  • 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM
  • Hosted Online by RGS
The Romanian Genealogy Society presents  a special event webinar, the second

in its International Speaker Series, featuring Andrei Popescu, Ph.D..

This  illuminating presentation will describe common challenges with Romanian research, and why genealogical sources often give false, partially false, or approximate information. Learn about these errors, why they appear, and how you can spot them. Andrei will  also discuss:

  • confusion regarding names and surnames
  • name variations
  • forming of Romanian surnames
  • how linguistic differences affect written names of Romanian, German, Hungarian, Jewish, Greek, and other origins
  • how villages, cities, counties and countries changed their names and borders over time
Andrei Popescu is an independent researcher,  founder, and coordinator of the project Scriem istoria ta (We Write Your History). He holds a doctorate in history  and was named Researcher of the Year by the Romanian National Archives for 2019 and 2020.

He is the author of many books, articles, and other studies, including the English language e-book How to Find Your Ancestors from Bucharest : a guide for identifying, interpreting and understanding online and offline genealogical resources. Andrei  Popescu is open to requests for consultations. If you are interested, please e-mail him directly.
