thank you. I don't believe she is any further back than i am at this point, though.
The 1774 Census lists 14 Jews and the 1852 list 634. There are only 100,000 people there now. Since we both have Katz' from there in our families, i believe there has to be a connection. Just have to find it.
I have a Romanian friend at work. he is from a town a couple hundred miles from there, in the heart of Transylvania. I am going to press him into service. I will happily share what ever turns up.
