Where is Szibo, Hungary? #hungary

My guess would be that you're talking about Zsibo, which is now Jibou,
Salaj, Romania in Transylvania.

I have a record that someone was born in Szibo, Hungary. I can't
locate that place on a map.

could it be zsibo in szilagy megye, in present-day romania? (romanian
spelling jibou.)

otherwise, it looks like an abbreviation, since "sz" is the usual
abbreviation of saint, possibly "szent ibolya". except that, among
all the other saints, i couldn't find an ibolya (popular feminine
name meaning violet).

You can't find, because it is - most probably - mispelled. The correct name
is Zsibo (with an accent on the o), today in Romania. See on Wikipedia

Perhaps it is Zsibo? Zsibo is in the former Szilagy County, now in Romania.
