Hi
=20
My great grandfather was born in Er Semjen, Hungary which became part of=20=
Romania. I know that there were Jonas(z) family members living in=20
Romania after it was taken over >from Hungary. I am unaware of=20
his father's name. He remarried after my great great=20
grandmother pasted away. I know her name was Leni Emanueline Schwartz. =20=
I had someone research where my great grandparents lived to see if he=20
could obtain their parents names. Unfortunately for some reason they=20
never entered either name on their marriage certificate.

I had some great help >from fellow JGenners - thanks!
=20
My cousin's great-grandparents (Aaron Schapiro and Rachel Lazman) were=20
from what is now Moldova. "Rospopeny" is agreed to be Raspopeni,=20
about 52 miles north-northwest of Chisinau.
=20
"Keshmer" is either Cusmirca (/Kushmiria/Kushmirka), 63 miles north=20
of Chisinau, or Cuzmenii Vechi, 70 miles WNW of Chisinau.=20
Either way, it's the same general area, and it definitely exists.
=20
Although I'd checked the JGFF Town Finder, I really didn't dig into=20
the Gazetteer, using the Sounds-Like and Phonetically-Like options,=20
and I should have (although I wouldn't have known to narrow it down=20
to Moldova).
=20
Happy New Year, everyone!

I haven't been doing much research lately (Life has a way of intruding=20=
on our hobbies, darn it), but I was checking for a cousin (the other=20
side of her family), and found 2 ancestors who were born in Keshmer,=20
Roumania. Does anyone know of this town, and where it is/what it's=20
called now?
