    She is also 1/64 Serbian through Ekatarina Perisic from Novi Sad and 1/64 Aromanian through her husband Gheorghie Konstantin Georgevici de Apadia
    (his family is cited as “Macedo-Roman” here: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/9/9a/Vasile_Alexandrescu_Urechia_-_Albumul_Macedo-Rom%C3%A2n.pdf#page=117&zoom=auto,-100,763)

    The other 1/32 is unlikely “Austrian”. The von Rosenzweig hailed from Weißkirchen, Moravia, and they seem Jewish to me.
