Thank you I have had tremendous success with my queries to this group -
JUDES/Eidelman family connection found:)
I'm on a roll so now I'm looking for the SHMID son and daughter of Elchone(Chone)
who came to South Africa >from Vieksniai - perhaps Chaim Ber or Myer Shmid (Smith)?
Any info on these families would be great - offlist please if people are living
