  1. Can you tell me how to conatct Abel Levitt or provide his email address. My father in law was from Birzai

    Also we were married in the Gardens Shul in 1958 do you still want to have wedding photos

  2. My grandmother’s sister emigrated from Belarus with her new husband, Moshe Rabinowitz, relocating in Rhodesia. Her name was Esther and their children included Jack, Hymie, and Sarah. Sarah married Bill Margolis. I also know that Hymie changed the last name to Robbins. Wondering if there is a connection.
