How to find Guide in Romania for Jewish Ancestry Search?

Planning on going to Romania in June, 2015. Need a guide/translator/driver to take me to Ramnicu Sarat to try to find any information on my family.

How do I go about finding someone?

There's a guide to Romanian Jewish genealogy on the Israel Genealogy Research Association (IGRA) site:

http://genealogy.org.il/resources/resource-guide-romania/

The author also gives his e-mail address, so if you have further questions you can contact him.

You could try asking on JewishGen's Romania-SIG (Special Interest Group) e-mail mailing list which is free.

You can try Fernando Klabin. He is a romanian certified tour guide. I have been in touch with him in the past to check if he had info on my Romanian ancestry (Secureni, todays Southern Ukraine, in the border with Moldova).
