Hunbany, Romania #general

Albert Brookenthal <albert@...>
 

Dear JewishGen members: I have been looking for the village - shtetl - town
Hunbany, Romania for many many years. I have checked in very old Atlases' at
the Library, I have checked on the Internet, and have checked with members
at the Jewish Genealogical Society of Michigan. I found no information on
maps, on the Internet or >from any Genealogical Societies. I have received
possible locations and different names for this village, shtetl or town. The
name of this place was on my great grandfather ship manfest. Does any
JewishGen member know anything about this village-shtetl-town??? Has anybody
ever heard this village-shtetl-town name?? I am now 82 years old and after
15 years, I am slowing down on my researching. Please, with your help, I
would be greatly appreciated any information and Thank You!!!

Looking for ships manifests into the UK #general

Jacqueline DAVIS <jdavis318@...>
 

Good afternoon genners

There seems to be no records in the UK of ships manifests into the UK, but
would it be possible to find my great grandparents who left Lithuania around
1903, on a manifest out of Hamburg then getting off the ship in the UK for
some reason, and not going on to the US.

I have no idea of the name of the ship, or the actual date they left
Lithuania.

If anyone can tell me how to go about searching it will be very much
appreciated.

KROCHMAL family question(s) #galicia

Steve Jaron
 

Hi,

Last year I introduced myself as a lurker on this board as I have
nothing to contribute but I do have questions. In regards to
Krochmal I am trying to find my connection to Nachman
Krochmal. I have a theory as to why one Krochmal family expert
I spoke with doesn't know anything about my 4th great
grandfather Tsvi Aryeh/Hirsch Leib (b. abt 1837 in Tarnopol to
Pessie Goldbrum) but I will save that for another time.

I was wondering if anyone of you out there knows the following
about the descendants of Nachman Krochmal:

Did Joseph Krochmal have any children?
Did Abraham have any other children than Anna?
What about Nachman's siblings or cousins? Did any of them
end up in Tarnopol?
What about the Sirkus family >from Zloczow? I have heard >from
various older cousins that they married into the Krochmal
family more than once.

If anyone could be of any help or point me in the right direction
it would be greatly appreciated.
