This is a fantastic project. I have been searching for information on
my Romanian Kranzdorf cousins for years. Without the records, it would
have been impossible to even know where to start.

I would suggest not only using the surname function but also the
bottom options that allows you to search any mention of a word in the
entire record. I found by chance a Jochem Kranzdorf as a declarant at
someone’s birth in Campulung (not really sure what a declarant even
is). Until now we never knew Jochem had any connection with
Campulung. He died in Bucharest.

I unfortunately cant help with translations. I only speak English and
a little Afrikaans and Hebrew.
