I've been in California. The name of the town in Bessarabia was Yednitz (Ednitzi) I remember that I asked my grandmother what was the name of the town where she was born. She said "Yednitz". I looked for years to find a mention of that town. Several years ago I was at a bookstore in the Holocaust Museum in D.C. I finally found it in a book about Romania!(spelled both ways.) My grandfather - Joseph Friedman - also was born in Yednitz.
