Welcome to the LAMBOR family home page

 

Lambor is a very rare surname. My Lambor ancestor apparently originated in Moravia (now in the Czek Republic) in about 1812. He went to Sambir, in what was then Poland, but is now in The Ukraine.  The only Lambor family in Poland today is our family. I can find no Lambors in the Moravia area today, but there are plenty of Jambors. The US census shows a few other Lambors who originate from Galicia, in the same Ukraine/Poland area.

Moravia and Galicia are very close neighbours. Galicia includes the southern part of Poland and the Ukraine from just west of Cracow in Poland to just east of Lvov (Lemberg) in the Ukraine. The Ukraine part of Galicia used to be named Ruthenia, but when the Austro-Hungarian Empire took over, they renamed the whole area Galicia. Now, it is divided between Poland and the Ukraine.

 

Information on Galicia

 

I have doubts that Lambor is an Eastern European name. It may even be Greek, derived from Lambros or Lambropolous . Some Lambors who appear in the US censuses originated from Greece. The baptisms for a few of these can be found on the IGI, but as Lambros.

 

However, there are Lambors in Malaysia and in India.
