Hello Jeremy,

HUNYAD (pronounce huniad) was a county in the Hungarian Empire, capital Vajdahunyad, now in Romania, called HUNEDOARA.

As for Sephardim Jews in Romania, the answer is yes, there were Sephardim families living in the Transylvania territory which now is Romania.

I am trying to find information about my great grandfather Moise
ABRAHAMS who lived in a small town near KOLOSVAR (Now Cluj). I don't
know how to spell the name of the town but it sounds like Hun-yod

I am trying to find out if family rumors are true that Hungarian
relatives living near Kolosvar (now Cluj) were Sephardic.
Were there Sephardic Jews in this part of Hungary/Romania?
Did they have Hungarian, German, or other Surnames?
