Districts in Braila, Romania
Posted by: Todd Halpern Date: February 08, 2001 at 17:48:07

I recently received some birth registrations from Braila, Romania. The births were recorded in the 1880s and 1890s. Braila addresses for some of the people noted in the registrations include the specification of a district, which is named for a color; e.g., red, blue, yellow. Does anyone know anything about these Braila districts in the 1880s/1890s era? What they did they encompass and what was their purpose? Any significance to a particular color?
