Can you tell me which region of Romania the village of Botosanyi was in in
the period 1869 to 1902. Could you tell me what names in Romania would have
been similar to WEISMAN.
The town name is properly written as "Botosani", the S with a
diacritic that causes it to be pronounced as English SH; the I isn't
pronounced, but palatalizes the preceding N. It was in the Dorohoi
District at that time.

ISMACH: Lomza Gubernia, Galicia, and Ukraina
HERTANU, ABRAMOVICI, LAUER: Dorohoi District, Romania
GRISARU, VATARU: Iasi, Dorohoi, and Mileanca, Romania
