Re: Alternative place names for "Kunar, Poland, Russia" in census #poland #general


Hi Lesley, 

There are many immigrants for USA whose birth place appears , in passenger lists, as Kunar, Kunary, Kunarz, Kunara or Kunari. There are also variations of the above mentioned names; Konar, Konary etc. Most of these immigrants  were of Polish origin (some from Galicia, others from Russia). Probably the place you are looking for,  is a very small  shtetl and that is the reason why you can't find it using J G townfinder. From what it appears, there are a number of small villages in Poland named Konary. Perhaps if you knew the gubernia or the district that Kunar belonged to,  you could locate it more easily.
