ALBU / OLTEANU Family History

Updated March 28, 2001

About Our Family Research


Research into our family history is fairly sparce. I am currently searching for historical information prior to my great grandparents.

Nicolae Olteanu was born in Romania. After he was married and had a family, he travelled to Canada, landing in Halifax Port and continued his travelling to Saskatchewan. He secured a job as a construction worker building hotels in Saskatchewan when he sent for his wife and children. My great grandmother Maria Olteanu travelled over with three children (my grandmother Victoria Albu was a babe in arms at the time) from Romania and landed in Halifax Port approximately 1905 - 1908. When she made it to Saskatchewan, she heard the news that Nicolae had died in a construction accident. She was taken in by the Red Cross and met Nick Christie, married and had three more children.

This is a story that has been told to me many times over my lifetime. At 30, I have a strong desire to search deeper into my lineage. If anyone has any information regarding Olteanu (this name was changed to Oltean once landed in Canada/North America) or any information on Albu please contact me. I would greatly appreciate any help someone may have and am willing to share any infroamtion I have.

And so... the search begins.
