Kapnibanya #hungary


Alfred Klein <dcas17@...>
 

Hi all,

Can someone help me with the location of Kapnibanya? My aunt was born
there. It is located in Transylvania or more probably Maramures. I have
looked for it on maps and atlases and on the Jewish gen site but, have been
unable to find it.

There is a Kapnikbanya that is now Cavnic in Romania.

The former Kapnikbanya is now Cavnic, just east of Baia Mare
(Nagybanya) and Baia Sprie (Felsobanya).

My map of Transylvania (purchased just this summer in Hungary) includes
Kapnikbanya (apparently the Hungarian name, as a Romanian name is noted
next to it--Cavnic). The town is east of Baia Mare (I'm guessing 30
km--the map is mostly great, but I've not located the scale on it). My
map includes pretty small towns, but this one looks large enough that it
should show on most maps. East of Baia Mare does mean Maramures, I
believe.

. . . . Can someone help me with the location of Kapnibanya? My aunt
was born there. It is located in Transylvania or more probably
Maramures. --Alfred Klein

Thank you to Bob Friedman, Diane M. Freilich, Diane Goldman, and Barbara
Kaufman for responding to my request on finding Kapnibanya. You all
indicated that it is now called Cavnic.
I greatly appreciate your quick responses.
