About Rachel(Ruchel) Lazar

I wish I knew more about my great Baba other then she was a new immigrant to Canada settling on a farm in Birds Hill, Manitoba, Canada. Her family ran a flower mill (? Riga, Latvia). The oldest generation now has few memories of her as she died when they were very young or before they were born. She must have been a special woman loved by her daughter and daughter in law as they chose to honor her memory in naming her grand-daughter Ricki(Ruchel) Steinman, and 2 great granddaughters Ricki(Ruchel) Segal(Stern) and myself. According to oral history Ruchel had relatives(Higger family) in St. Louis, Missouri. I am looking for a connection. Rosalie (Ruchel Rasha)Roxanne Lazar February 24/2011
