Romanian Shtetl #romania
I have been researching my family history & genealogy for almost 25 years.
Some time ago I found the Shtetl-Village-Town of my great grandfather
on the New York Passenger Lists, 1820 - 1927. The names of the
Shtetl-Village-Town in Romania on the Passenger Lists is Hunbany, Romania.
I have been studying and looking at maps in the Toledo Public Library
Local History & Genealogy Department of Roumania - Romania trying to
find Hunbany, Romania on them without success. Has any Rom-Sig members
ever heard of Hunbany??? Do any Rom-Sigger's have any Mishpauchah in this
Shtetl-Village-Town??? Is there any Rom-Sig members with an old map of
Romania-Roumania that might have Hunbany on it???
I thank you for any information.

Question was for a place named Hunbany, Romania. In fact a close reading of
the manifest (which I found based on Mr. Brookenthal additional info in a
private mail) reveals the place is ROMAN, Roumany (just some wrong
spelling). The key was to notice that the town is listed first and then the
Great Neck, NY
