South Africa SIG #SouthAfrica Re: Searching BERELOWITZ family #southafrica

hello. we have a Berlowitz family here on Kibbutz Shluchot in Israel.
The father's name is Yosef - he must be around 75+. I think he came
from Europe before WW2. If this interests you, we can ask the family for
more info. Judi Schneider.

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.
