Ancestry Maps


Romanian ancestry map The ePodunk map shows U.S. cities with the highest percentages of people of ancestry. Learn about cities with genealogy and find in-depth community information about the ancestry cities.


The majority of Romanian immigrants to America occurred after 1870. Many were enticed by steamship company agents proclaiming the economic opportunities of the U.S.

In the 2000 census, 367,278 people in the U.S. claimed Romanian ancestry.

ePodunk mapped the top communities by percentage of population. The map and the following list show communities in which 1,000 or more people listed an ancestry group, and in which at least 1 percent of those people said they were of Romanian ancestry.
