Many Thanks to all the members of the SA-SIG who contacted me about the
Rivlins who lived in Johannesburg and Benoni and are buried there .
Unfortunately no one as yet has put me on the tracks of their children but
my experience is that a message in the archives of a SIG may eventually be
picked up by some one with information.

In Jerusalem or the 3 other "holy cities" - Safed, Hebron and Tiberias ,
there was a community known as the Old Yishuv ie who preceded the modern
Zionist immigration to Israel. There were members of these families who
migrated over the years , particularly before and after World War One, to
South Africa.
I am interested in records and family traditions about these families. The
Old Yishuv was relatively small and many of the families of the Old Yishuv
were related to one another.
