Rabinowitz families in SA #southafrica

Bernard Teren <teren@...>
 

Hi all,

Just to keep the trail warm............

There was a Robinson family in Randfontein,near Krugersdorp,where I Grew
up. Lost contact with them after leaving school.

Also a Rabinowitz family lived 3 doors down >from me in Krugersdorp. Father
was Archie....two daughters - Sally and Biddy - they moved away >from
Krugersdorp in early 60's ....no contact thereafter.

Hope this helps someone


Best wishes,

Bernard TEREN (ex Krugersdorp)


Re: PERK #southafrica

Ann Rabinowitz <annrab@...>
 

In regard to Dennis Kahn's inquiry about the PERK family, it would help if
he would provide the married name of his great grandmother so that she could
be connected properly with other PERK family members who might know her by
that name.

In addition, he should:

1. First look at the SA National Archives listings for PERK. There you
will see that the following are related:

Aaron PERK and first wife Sonia Jessie (Jane) Blumenfeld and second wife
Esther.

Meyer Gerson PERK is probably the Meyer PERK listed in the immigration
record and perhaps the progenitor of the other PERKS who are listed as he is
the eldest. Due to his age (born 1876), he would appear to be perhaps a
nephew of your PERK family.

2. Look in the Poor Jews' Temporary Shelter Database and you will find,
for instance, that Aron PERK was born in Vilkomir (Ukmerge) in 1886 and came
to SA in 1913. This may mean that he is related to your PERK family >from
there. Another listing is for U. PERK, born 1876, Kovno. As there is no
other listing for a "U" PERK and the date of birth is the same, this may
refer to Meyer Gerson PERK in some manner or perhaps not.

3. Look in the Mormon records for South Africa for estates which may give
you the relationship of the people you have noted on the RootsWeb site.

Sally Bruckheimer <sallybru@...>
 

The term Rev., Reverend, was used for Jewish clergy as well as
Christian. It is the same as saying 'revered'.

So the COHEN, ENELOW, HELLER, etc. were not "conversos" or using the
title to look like Christians, they were Rabbis using the title then
in use.

Jewish surnames (COHEN, ENELOW, HELLER, KOHLER, KOHN,
KRAUS, MANN, DE SOLA MENDES, MORGENSTERN, PHILIPSON,
SCHULMAN, STOLTZ),"conversos" or using the title to
look like they "assimilated", even in the 1920s!"

I could put in touch Annemarie Jutel, who asked information

with one of his still living grandsons. For anyone who would be
interested in the information concerning that great and famous Grand
Rabbi of France : the Library of the Cercle de Genealogie Juive
(Paris) has a 28 pages document written partly by that grandson and
anyone can buy copies of it. All the necessary details are on
