There are two villages named Konyatyn (Koniatin) that are located in Ukraine. One
village is in Chernigov region and the other one in West Bukovina. Konyatyn in
Bukovina is the place that is listed in JGFF database with a single researcher.

Generally, when place is too small to be identified, best would be to look into the
neighbouring larger shtetlakhs. Konyatyn nearest known Jewish populated places are
Yablunytsya (Yablonica) and Putila (Putyla) in Bukovina. Putila, the larger town
with largest Jewish population in the vicinity is most probably where records have
been deposited.

"History of Bukovina Jews", Tel-Aviv 1962 is the best for region research and to
contact directly researcher that is listed in JGFF for Konyatyn might be also
