I am looking for information about my husband's great-grandparents. His great-grandfather was Marin Tudor al Dini, but is also listed as Marin Simescu on his death certificate for reasons unknown to us.(His mother's maiden name is Simescu, so it must have been the name they kept). Marin Tudor al Dini (Simescu) died January 24, 1909 in the village of Bodesti, district of Vilcea. His wifeMaria Simescu,(also listed as Maria Marin Tudor al Dini on her death certificate?) died on January 29, 1928 also in the village of Bodesti.Her maiden name was Popescu.
If anyone has any information about Marin & Maria Simescu (al Dini), please let me know.I am especially curious to know if they had any children other than my husband's grandfather Marin Simescu (named after his father).
We are also planning a trip to Romania in a couple of weeks and are curious if anyone has been to the Horezu / Bodesti / Valcea area to do research?Please advise any tips that may help us out, this is our first trip and it seems there is limited information on Romania in general.
