Dear Siggers,

This is my first post on the SA SIG, so greetings to
all. I've just returned >from (excessively) fabulous
Las Vegas, where I learned that there may be some
descendants of my husband's family in South Africa.
My husband's grandfather was Jankl (Jacob) BERELOWITZ
and came to America >from Ekaterinoslav, Ukraine
(village of Orekhov) in 1906. He had the choice (so
the family story goes) of going either to America or
to South Africa, where he had a cousin. Jankl's
father may have been Hirsch. If anyone recognizes
these names, I would greatly appreciate hearing from
you.
