About Mere Mink

Mere REEB( b. Vieksniai,Lith. d Vryheid S Africa) married Yossef (Joseph) Mink (b.Akhamene d.1923), Lithuania. They had a son Barney Mink( b. Vieksniaia,Lith.), who came to S Africa. I have corresponded once with Ronnie Mink, Barney's son. I have seen that a certain Mink family (Shanna Mink Katz) has put out a search (JewishGen.com) for REEB and RIBAS, but she has not responded to by e-mails. We do tend to believe that 1) the REEB family was RIBAS, and 2) they came from Akmanene, NW Lithuania. It appears that the family name may have been Ribas, Rivas, Riv,etc. At this stage of our search we are uncertain. We do not know the source of the family name, be it the name of a place or person? We know where the family came from, even though at different periods of persecution they had to flee that area. This is our limited knowledge of the lineage and we cannot vouch for 100% authenticity? Documentation has been hard to get hold of as much of it was destroyed. If anyone is familiar with Reeb families from Israel or elsewhere, of the Jewish faith, from your past contacts, please inform me and we will be pleased to be contact.
