Dora and Archie RABINOWITZ #southafrica


I am looking for descendants of Dora (nee Ronde) and Archie (Aaron) RABINOWITZ.  Dora died in 1987 and Archie in 1994.  At the time of his death, Archie was survived by children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.  Unfortunately, I do not have any of their names.

In 1984, a voter registration register shows their address as 119 Commissioner Street, Krugersdorp.
I would like to be in contact with anyone who has any ideas on how to find their descendants.  I believe that Dora was my grandfather's cousin.

Thank you,

The death certificate may name the person that supplied the information (possibly a son or daughter.)  If one or both of the couple left a will (probate record) that should contain the names of their children, and possibly grandchildren.

Hi Sherri,

So far I haven't been able to find either of their death records.  Do you have any idea how I might find them online?

Hi again and apologies for causing an obstruction.
As mentioned before I grew up 4 doors away from the Rabinowitz family in Krugersdorp,at 113 Commissioner Street.
I know that there were 2 daughters a little older than I was.
Sally was about 5 years older and Biddy was 2-3 years older than I was. Two sisters so completely different looking.
Sally was a red head and freckled , and Biddy was a brunette and more tanned.
I no longer live there but still know a few people who may be able to assist.
My parents were of a similar age group to Archie and his wife.
Please let me know if you would like me to help.
Good luck with your search.

Best wishes 
Bernard Teren.
