Thank you for your reply. Gosh, I am so surprised that I have found anyone with the last name. Not sure if you are aware but the name is TARAMBANIS in Greek and as far as I know the family was someplace very close to the borders of Greece and Yugoslavia (changed now of course.) And that is where I have begun the hunt. The fact that your name is so very close in spelling is worthy of investigating. Last place that I found anyone with similar spelling (TARABAN) was at the borders of Italy and Austria. Would you tell me a bit about your name?
