Searching BERELOWITZ family #southafrica

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.

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.

Hi,

In Cape Town South Africa, which I left 40 years ago, there was a Dr
Berelowitz, probably >from Lithuania, wife and 2 daughters Doreen and
Valerie.
Presuming the daughters are alive and well they would be 63 and 61 or so.
You could contact Paul Cheifitz the president of the Genealogical Society
there.
I regret I do not know Dr B's first name. He was "old" then, having had his
family late in life. A very quiet man, I vaguely remember something special
and positive about him, something philanthropic... too vague.

Sincerely,
Ros Romem
