I am the chairperson of the Pinsk Ghetto List data entry project.
At the present time, there are about 50 volunteers entering the
approximately 16,000 names contained in the Pinsk Ghetto List.

At the present time, the list is not available to the general public,
but we are aiming for the end of this year (1999) to finish the project.
I assume shortly after that time the list will be available off the
Jewish Gen web site.

People with the surname Sj=F6berg was definitely not Jews.

It seems reasonable that the Swedish family/families with the surname

Page 52 "The Cape Town Hebrew Congregation, A Centenary History, 1841
-1941."By Dr. Louis Herrman.

"Another synagogue which arose under the fostering regard of the Cape
Town minister was that of Kimberley. The "Griqualand West Jewish
Asssociation" formed in 1871 held the High Festivals in a corrugated iron
structure. Lionel Phillips, Woolf Joel, and Isaac Lewis were amongst the
worshippers but the initiative was taken by Joel Myers, an Eastern
District Jew, a pioneer of oistrich farming who was one of the first
traders at the diggings. Myers acted under Mr Rabinowitz' instructions in
the conduct of the services, and the minister sent >from Cape Town several
sets of festival prayer books and A Shofar, a gift >from the parent
congregation. He regretted that Cape Town could not spare a Sefer Torah.
Within two years a properly built synagogue was erected. A wedding was
solemnised in the new synagogue shortly after its consecration, the
bridegroom being a young fortune seeker >from London. He is now the
venerable Colonel Sir David Harris, K.C.M.G. The Rev. Mr. Rabinowitz
officiated for a time as minister at Kimberley before a minister had been
appointed, and after he had retired >from his post at Cape Town."

Page 81 "The Birth of a Community," Abrahams.

" For a few years later the Rev. Myer Wolfsohn a properly authorised
minister ,was appointed to the congregation (Oudtshoorn) and the Rev, Mr
Ornstein was invited to lay the foundation stone, on January 26 1888, of
the first synagogue to be built in the township. The Cape Minister was
assisted at the service by the Rev. Mark L. Harris of Kimberley; and a
number of gentiles including the organist of the local Dutch Reformed
Church, participated in the singing of psalms."

These are the only two references I can find relating to the earliest
formal worship in Kimberley. I hope it helps. You have three possibilities
here.

frequent email >from people asking us for info on their

we have to help locate records for their particular grandparent,
cousin, etc.

While JRI-Poland would very much like to help as many people

place),
we don't have the resources to do personal research.

Our web site has been set up and enhanced over the years

reason this information is not clear, by all means, ask me to
