Tirgu-Mures/MarosVarshalley, Romania/Hungry, Transylvania : PreWWII


The last name Hamlet is most likely of English decent, but there is a Jewish family line that picked up the name in Romania. The Family was of Spanish descent, they fled during the time of the inquisition. It is thought the family name was once Jona (יונה) There seem to be 2 different Jewish families now with the name Hamlet המלט. My family came directly from Transylvania before and after WWII, though most perished in concentration camps. There is another Jewish family that seemed to come from Germany. I have yet to make contact with them to see if we can link the families.
