I have just joined litvaksig . I have been doing genealogy research for
about a year and haven't made much progress in finding or giving much
information regarding my ancestors .
I live on Kibbutz Tzora in Israel . My native language is Hebrew but i
also speak a fluent English as i was born in South Africa .
I consider myself intermediate in using the computer and the internet .
My parents , Willy ( Velfka ) and mother Anne ( Channa ) born at the
end of the 19th century , left Lithuania in the late 1920's . Settled
first in Magaliesberg and then in Parys in South Africa . My mother died
in Magaliesberg in 1936 and my father died in Parys in 1964 .
My fathers brothers , Hirsha , Idel , Issac , Phillip and sister Ada all
left Lithuania several years before my parents and all settled in the
town of Potchefstroom in South Africa where all the brothers died
between 1955 and 1970 . Ada spent several years in Israel with her
daughter Rochi . She returned to S A where she died circa 1980 .
My primary research goals now are what happened to my fathers youngest
brother Sunic who remained in Lithuania , and any information on my
grandfather and grandmother -- they were Hirshe Maisha and Chaya Leya .
The family names and towns that I'm researching are
HERR - Rokiskis or Seduva to Magaliesgerg in South Africa in 1930
GERR - Rozalia to Potchefstroom in South Africa between 1920 and 1930
STOLLARD - Raguva to Johannesberg 1936 . to Muizenberg Cape Town 1942
