My father was born Jewish, converted to Christianity and I am told his ancestry started in Russia. During emmigrating from Russia one brother took the USA boat and the other accidently took the SA boat, have no idea of the dates but was a while back. I come from the SA line. Does this story ring a bell? Any idea who my relatives are. I know of no living Karpels in South Africa and myself am an only child.
