Romanian Independence War documents


Recommended Posts

It is quite a lot to translate, but in essence this is a collection of legal copies of documents regarding the participation of a Jewish sergeant, David Senfeld/Seinfeld from Roman, to the Independence War. Apparently, he had received the Silver Military Medal and the Defenders of the Independence Medal in 1878, the Russian Commemorative Medal in 1881 and the second class of the Faithful Service Medal in 1883. He was naturalised as a Romanian citizen in 1879.

Given that one of them referred to the naturalisation of David Seinfeld in 1878, I guess they were documents supporting the Romanian citizenship of one of his descendants.

    • Lapsang Souchong, when i first tasted this I thought it was like stale cigarette ends...it's an acquired taste for sure.

So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
    • I drink tea every day (Chinese tea), I used to buy Sri Lankan black tea at the fair before, it was great! I have been reluctant to drink them all. . The tea I’m talking about is just brewing water, not adding other substancesI
