proud roman legacy
I'm looking to do some family/geneology research at the regional archive in Alba Iulia and at a church in the small town of Berghin nearby. However, I don't speak Romanian or German, but do speak some Hungarian. Can anyone give any advice as to finding someone who can do some translation/interpretation for me?

Travel Tips for Alba Iulia
Visit the citadel
The one thing of interest to visit in Alba Iulia is the citadel and the buildings in it. The citadel walls are very old, the buildings inside are of more recent date. Though on occasion and if you look well, you can spot an old medieval window frame still embedded in a wall.
On the hill in front of the citadel the 3 peasants that rebelled against the romanian serv-dom were executed. There is a memorial statue fro them there

Historic Alba Iulia
I had the privilege of spending several days in Alba Iulia, and played an organ recital on the instrument in the Roman Catholic Cathedral of St. Michael. It is a fascinating city, with a handsome historic citadel - in this setting are two of the city's cathedrals, and a
library with a number of rare manuscripts. True enough, Ceaucescu managed to destory a bit of the city, but two significant buildings which escaped intact are a charming old Roman Catholic church, and a gracious synagogue.
VT member Dunmaire and her family were my gracious hosts during my visit in Alba Iulia.
