There are no towns listed in my reference books spelled CHOMANFALVA. There
are, however, two towns spelled KOMANFALVA:
1. KOMA'NFALVA: Bihar varmegye, Beli jaras. Now called Comanesti, Romania
and located somewhere near Oradea (was Nagyvarad, Hungary) in western
Romania. My modern road map does not show the location of Comanesti.
2. KOMA'NFALVA: Moldva, Bako megye. Also called Comanesti, Romania and is
located roughly 140 miles due north of Bucharest.
There are yet other towns with the same name. My mother's hometown of
Craciunesti shares its name with at least four other towns that are
scattered throughout Romania. Look up COMANESTI on JewishGen's ShtetlSeeker
and you'll see at least 9 towns in Romania.
