About this project This collection contains selected record from the Romanian archives on persecution and emigration during the German occupation including name lists, registration cards, correspondence, etc. A majority of records are in Romanian with a few in Hungarian.

Contents

Testing

This project is currently in testing and is not available for keying.

Need help keying this project?


From USHMM catalog record:

Biographical/Historical Note: The collection relates to deportations of Roma, both nomadic and sedentary, to Transnistria between the spring and fall of 1942. Twenty-five thousand Roma, 11,000 of them nomadic and 13,000 sedentary, were sent via foot and cart (nomadic) and via train (sedentary) to Transnistria. About 11,000 perished there.

Scope and Content: This collection documents deportations of 25,000 Roma to Transnistria in 1942: contains lists of Roma to be deported; police reports concerning alleged criminal activities; petitions of deportees for repatriation; "Romanianization" of Romas’ property; requests from local officials for clarification of deportation orders; internal correspondence concerning the effect of deportations on the remaining population; decisions regarding Roma refugees from Northern (Hungarian) Transylvania; and other topics such as typhus outbreaks, "vagabondism," "concubinism," and mixed marriages.

The first six reels also have documents from the Hungarian occupation of select cities in Northern Transylvania concerning Roma, such as quarantine for typhus, forced labor, and police investigations.

Because the records in this collection are so varied in type and information provided, only three form types will be identified and keyed. These include "Name List," "Form" and "Miscellaneous." All other form type unless blank will be captured as "Cover page, Section header, etc."

Keying the Documents

If the same individual appears on multiple documents within an image, key the name only once while keying the remaining information from wherever it may appear on the image.

On "Name List" form types, a 'Relationship' and 'Household Number' field have been provided in order to group families. Key each name in a family as a unique record along with their 'Relationship' to the 'Head' of the household. Key the same 'Household Number' for each member of the family until a new 'Head' of household is reached.

If an entry contains the word "ditto", the abbreviation "do", or ditto marks, copy the information down from the previous entry.

Some of the documents are questionnaires or forms, with questions or fields of information. Key as much of the requested information from these types of documents as possible.

For records such as correspondence, biographies, narratives, or other documents that do not consist of pre-printed forms or clearly fielded information and would otherwise require translating and reading through a block of text, only key the name of the primary individual, which should appear at the top of the page or somewhere near the beginning of the text. Do not worry about keying any other names mentioned in the document. At the very least, try to key a document date (which may be available near the top or bottom of the page) and birth information if it can be found within the first few sentences of a paragraph or somewhere near the name. Key information for the remaining fields if the information is located within the first few sentences of a paragraph and easily identified. These types of documents will typically not include information such as marital status, nationality, and residence.

Do not key the names of government or other officials as the goal is to capture information about the people for whom the document is about and not the people who administered or signed the documents.

Many names and locations will contain diacritics. Key those as seen using the "Insert international characters" button located directly above the keying grid and directly below the image.

Form



Choose the "Form" form type for pre-printed images with information that has been filled in. In order to classify an image as a form, the image must contain the name(s) of individuals.

Event Day

The event date is the date the document was signed or written. This is not available on every record, but if it is, it can usually be found near the top or bottom of the page. It often follows the word "din." The date will always appear in the day-month-year format.

Key the event day as seen. If there are multiple documents on an image for the same individual, but they have different event dates, key the most recent date available. If there are multiple documents on an image for different individuals and they have different event dates, or one has an event date and the other doesn't, create a new section for each document so that new headers are created and individuals are associated with the correct date.

Example of an event date: din 25 Iulie 1942

Event Month

The event date is the date the document was signed or written. This is not available on every record, but if it is, it can usually be found near the top or bottom of the page. It often follows the word "din." The date will always appear in the day-month-year format.

Key the event month as seen using the dictionary provided for assistance.

  • I - January - ianuarie
  • II - February - februarie
  • III - March - martie
  • IV - April - aprilie
  • V - May - mai
  • VI - June - iunie
  • VII - July - iulie
  • VIII - August - august
  • IX - September - septembrie
  • X - October - octombrie
  • XI - November - noiembrie
  • XII - December - decembrie

If there are multiple documents on an image for the same individual, but they have different event dates, key the most recent date available. If there are multiple documents on an image for different individuals and they have different event dates, or one has an event date and the other doesn't, create a new section for each document so that new headers are created and individuals are associated with the correct date.

Example of an event date: din 25 Iulie 1942

Event Year

The event date is the date the document was signed or written. This is not available on every record, but if it is, it can usually be found near the top or bottom of the page.  It often follows the word "din." The date will always appear in the day-month-year format.

Key the event year as seen. If there are multiple documents on an image for the same individual, but they have different event dates, key the most recent date available. If there are multiple documents on an image for different individuals and they have different event dates, or one has an event date and the other doesn't, create a new section for each document so that new headers are created and individuals are associated with the correct date.

If a name is not readily identifiable, look for properly cased words or words that are in all caps. Sometimes a name will be at the beginning of a paragraph, but at times may be further down in the body of the text. If you are unsure about whether or not a particular word is a name, use the provided dictionary for clues. If there are multiple names in a letter or on a form, key each as an individual record. Only key relationships on 'Name List' form types where families are clearly present.

Use the following keywords to help you identify where a name may be found on a document:

  • "numele si pronumele"
  • "invinuitul"
  • "cap fam" (head)
  • "soț" (husband)
  • "soție" (spouse)
  • "fică" (daughter)
  • "fiu" (son)
