RE OCHBERG ORPHANS #southafrica


DIGITAL PIX (Anne BREST) <digitalphoto@...>
 

Goeie More, Skatties,

Lauren SNITCHER-TYFIELD in Cape Town, South Africa is looking for anyone who
was, or is family of the OCHBERG Orphans who were brought over >from Poland
to South Africa in 1921 by Isaac OCHBERG. There were 175 Orphans brought
over, and Lauren has located 100 of these, and has leads on 20 more, so
there are 50 still outstanding.

I have done a Family Tree on the GAER (GAIER/GAYER) family, 3 of whom were
OCHBERG Orphans, (Sarah Gayer GILINSKY, Eve/Chava Gayer QUEIT and Harry
GAYER ) (all deceased) and have given a complete list of all their
descendants to Lauren , and I am trying now to help her locate the 50
Orphans she has no leads on.

If anyone knows of any OCHBERG Orphans, or their descendants, please could
you contact Lauren at tyfield@iafrica.com privately (and I have her
permission to give out her email), or myself, Anne LAPEDUS BREST
digitalphoto@icon.co.za privately.

There is to be a re-union in Israel at some date in the not too distant
future and Lauren is trying to contact each and every family who are
descendants of the OCHBERG Orphans.

Best Wense!
