looking for town named Chartorey? Charlovey? #romania #russia

Jake Jacobs

Ancestor named HANTMAN was born in a town listed on his Petition for Naturalization as Chartorey or Charlovey, Russia. Any ideas where this might be?

A search at:  https://www.jewishgen.org/Communities/Search.asp
using these parameters:
towns in pre-WW1 Russian Empire starting with Char, finds several possibilities.

Give it a try.

Also, have you found HANTMAN's passenger manifest?  That may give you more info.

Good luck in your search,

My grandmother was from Nova Chortoriya in Western Ukraine.  There are a variety of spellings in English.  She pronounced it "Chorkh - tria".
