Sarah Sneider (Fine) in South Africa #lithuania #southafrica


My grandmother who died in 1991 had in her address book "Sarah Sneider, Shangrila, 114 Francis St., Bellevue, Johannesburg, S. Africa" and notes she is my grandfather's niece. My grandfather was born in Panevezys Lithuania to Bentsion and Brokha FAIN/FEIN/FAYN. My father says he was told that one of the sons went to South Africa. I am unsure of this son's name but my best guess is that it was Sholom/Shlioma (born 1886) with a wife named Khava (LEVIN) and a daughter Bliuma (born in 1913).

There is a marriage record for Sarah Fine (born 1916) to Charles Sneider and an address for them in 1984 at 506 Maracynth, 19 Soper Road, Fife Ave, Berea, Johannesburg, but I have not been able to find any records connecting this Sarah Sneider to the FAINs in Lithuania.
I am interested in any information about Sarah Sneider in South Africa and more generally in descendants of Bentsion FAIN from Panevezys Lithuania.
