The following is a guide for composing a letter in Romanian language asking for genealogical information. You may adapt it to your needs and use it to write to the Romanian State Archives, local civil records office or parish in Romania. Be sure to type your name and address clearly and distinctly.

Sample Letter in Romanian

Stimaţe Domni/Pǎrente,

Avînd o mare dragoste pentru strǎmoşii mei din Romania, doresc foarte mult sǎ complectez istoria familiei mele de acolo. Din acest motiv, apelez la bunǎvointa Dumneavoastrǎ cu speranta cǎ mǎ veţi putea ajuta cu pocurarea unor date oficiale referitoare la strǎmoşii mei. În mod specific, aş dori sǎ aflu mai multe detailii genealogice despre persoana urmǎtoare:

Numele strǎmoşului (if the ancestors was a male) /strǎmoaşei (if the ancestor was a female):
Locul de Nasţere:
Religia: (insert appropriate religion from list below)
Data de Nastere (aproximativǎ):
Data de Cǎsǎtorie (aproximativǎ):
Alţi membri ale Farniliei: (insert appropriate relationship from list below)

Pentru a documenta istoria strǎmosilor mei, as dori foarte mult sǎ pro cur copii din certificatele lor de nastere/cǎsǎtorie/deces. Dace in acelas timp puteti se-mi procurati deasemeni copii din acetele oficiale sau sǎ le transcrieţi ale pǎrinţilor lui, care erau spusi sǎ fi locuit in acelasi loc, v-as rǎmine foarte recunǎscǎtor dacǎ aţi putea sǎ-mi trimiteti si informaţia aceasta. Deoarece iu nu stiu limba Romanǎ--scrisoarea aceasta fiind scrisǎ cu ajutorul unui prieten, v-as ruga sǎ-mi scrieţi toate numele si localitǎtile fǎre inflexii gramaticale.

A-si aprecia foarte mult dacǎ mi-aţi scrie care ar fi costul total al lucrǎrii efectuate de Dumneavoastrǎ. In asteptarea rǎspunsului Dumneavoastrǎ, prirniţi vǎ rog inalta mea consideraţie.

Ceu mullumiri,

Esteemed Sir/Pastor, Priest,

Having a great love for my ancestor from Romania, I would like very much to complete the history of my family there. For this reason I appeal to your amiability in the hope that you will aid me in the procurement of official records pertaining to my ancestry. Specifically I would like more information about the following individual:

Name of ancestor:
Place of birth:
Religion:
Birthdate (approximate if necessary):
Marriage date (approximate if necessary):
Other members of the family: (information about parents, brothers, sisters, husband or wife, etc. that may help the priest or archivist in researching)

I would like to ask for certificates of birth/marriage/death. If you could at the same time find information on his parents, who are said to have lived at the same place, I would be most grateful. If possible, I would like to procure exact copies or transcriptions of the actual records. Inasmuch as I do not know Romanian--this letter has been written by a friend--I would ask that you please give the information without grammatical endings.

Please let me know the cost of your work so that I can make payment. I am anxiously awaiting your reply, for which I will be most grateful.

Sincerely,
