Request help in locating descendants of Istok Karpiscak who landed in Ellis Island,NYC on May 26,1910 aboard the S/S Pannonia departing from FIUME ( now RIJEK, Croatia). Ship's manifest shows his permenent address as LYNBA (probably a misspelling of LIMBA) LIMBA is the Romanian name of the town which in Hungarian was LOMBFALVA and in 1965 was renamed DUMBRAVA. My research shows that LIMBA is a small village in ALBA county-ALBA- IULA and reports to a larger village of CIUGAD.
I am also told that DUMBRAVA is a small village that reports to UNIREA. If LIMBA was renamed DUMBRAVA, how can there be 2 reporting communes
But both villages are in ALBA County.
I have written a letter to Primaria Municipiului, 510118
Alba Iulia (in English) on 12 Dec 2005 requesting the name of a genealogical contact person to help me in my search but as today (25 Feb 2006) have not recieved a reply. Can anyone assist.
