Re: Segal- Hershkovitz family from Yassi, Roumania

Can anyone here please help?

I have reason to believe my ancestor Isaac Davis born around 1770 is from the Segal family and was possibly born 'Isaac Itsak Hijman Chaim Courant-Levie Segal' (Child Number 3 in the bottom record). He was only known as Davis after his arrival in London. All the family I think he belongs to seemed to have changed their surname mostly to Cozijn, Hart or Hirsh. I have found a tree linking from one of the brothers and found a picture of Abraham Cozijn who was murdered during WWII, a direct descendent of one of Isaac's brothers. He could have been my Dads twin! I want to find a living relative for a DNA test that my Dad has agreed to do so I can prove the following family are our direct relatives.

If also hope this document I found can help someone else who might be related to any of the surnames:
