David Israel

Interesting because I am Israel on both sides and part of the family went in the early 1900's to the Belguim congo and then on to Rhodesia and South Africa. So maybe we are related, some people think there is more than one Israel familly but I don't know, the census from the 1800's list only one family.


You have the wonderful Diaspora Museum in Israel.

Start there!

I didn't do that much, actually. I visited Rhodes and then wrote about it on my Blog.

Thanks for your comment on my site.
I wish you well.


dear tamar,
you are lucky to trace your roots. i have that feeling too. how i wish to trace mine. coz of my incapabilities i cant do it. am partially handicapped just living with my insurance allowance. am still young at 37 how i wish to do something for humanity and for my family roots.
am hoping and praying so hard that GOD will show me where and how to start it.maybe you guide me too.

shabbat shalom
