Dobrudscha Research

Quick links:  History, resettlement records, family/surname research, village info, other, main Bessarabia research page

The first migration to Dobrudscha began 1841-1856, especially by Bessarabian and other Black Sea Germans. At this time, Dobrudscha was part of the Ottoman Empire and the Germans were subject to Turkish rule. In 1878 Dobrudscha (at least the area where most of the Germans were) was ceded to Romania. In 1940, the Dobrudscha Germans were resettled to Germany along with the Bessarabian Germans
