Velvelovich and Goldstein Families

Compiled by Esther (Herschman) Rechtschafner

Judy Lynn email:

Judy's grandparents Yehuda Velvelovich and Sarah Goldstein both came from Sveksna. Her grandfather went to the USA when he was very young, that is where he got the name (Louis) Berman. He subsequently went back to Lithuania, apparently when his Mother died. Afterwards he emigrated to South Africa. He had two brothers and a sister Rose. Judy is not sure of the brother's names, she thinks one was Harry. He also had two half-brothers. Judy's grandmother was Sarah Goldstein, the youngest in a large family. Sarah's mother died at her birth and her name could have been Rachel. Sarah's father died when she was about 10 years old and she had to work in an inn. Most of her brothers and sisters emigrated to Liverpool, in the U.K. She had a brother named Sol Goldstein. Judy believes that their family lives in Leicester, U.K. Her cousin says there are Goldsteins in the U.K. and they are related to them.
