We've had few details of Jakob FLINKER who delivered his grandson (my father) in Cz in 1910 and taken to Vienna at 10 days of age never to return. His daughter and my grandmother (Bertha FLINKER) who lived in Cz until her marriage and at an advanced age made her way, six weeks by boat, to New Zealand in 1946 but talked very little about the Cz family where she lost her three siblings in WW2. I don't know what became of great aunts Rebecca, Sylvie and uncle Leo. I've also known little about Jakob apart from a couple of photos, and thanks to Mimi have a precious image of his grave in the Cz cemetery. This group is a gift for me filling very many gaps about life in Cz.

Thank you so very much for the help in unravelling the puzzle of my Cz family.

Best wishes,
