Dear Frank:

If Max was born in Wama, I believe the records
would be in the State Archives in Suceava. Prof.
Gyemant has said that Cimpulung records for
1857-1893 are held in Suceava.

For the 1859 marriage record of Israel and
Raschel, I'm not sure you'll find it. The
Czernowitz marriage record files (microfilmed by
the LDS Family History Library) begin in 1867.
However, many marriages were performed by Rabbis
in Bukowina but registered years later with the
Kultusgemeinde. So you may be in luck if the
1859 marriage was registered after 1867. In the
online Family History Library catalog, there is
no index for the period 1867-1876, but you might
wish to start with Microfilm 2395722 which holds
the marriage indices for the period 1877-1922.
See: <>.

The 1843 birth record of Raschel - you're
probably out of luck on this one; birth records
are available in the FHL library for 1860 forward.

If you're interested in Wien/Vienna records, the
FHL has a very large collection of records for
the Jewish congregation. See:

I hope this helps,
