Does anyone know anything about the people of BREBU in Prahova? It was at one time a Jewish Shtetl. I am not Jewish and do not know if my ancestors were or not. I have ancestors with the surname BREBURDA but do not know if they came from Romania originally--my great-grandmother apparently was born in Bohemia or Moravia, now the Czech Republic. There is little to nothing that I have ever been able to find out about these ancestors, and the name is a very rare one. I know there were Jewish persons with the surname BURDA so I've thought my ancestors "could" have come from Brebu in Romania, hence the name BREBURDA, or "Burdas from Brebu." Any help would surely be appreciated!
