Re: Lowenerg - Hellmann families from Talsi, latvia in South Africa #latvia #southafrica


Hi Dani,

Avraham Mendel Lowenberg lived and died in my home town in S. Africa, Upington; his death and burial records are included on the cemetery page of the KehilaLinks site that I maintain, and the tombstone photo shows his father's name as Tzvi. I know one grandson who still lives in S. Africa and although I haven't been in touch with him for decades, I can probably get his contact information if you want to follow up privately.

In response to both you and Betsy, there was a Reverend Hellman (not sure of the spelling) who served the Upington Jewish community around the 1920s.
