The Ger family originated in Lithuania. The earliest family member I have found is Itzyk Ger, an innkeeper in Kubiliunai, Lithuania. Itzyk lived in Pabirze Volost, Panevezys, Kaunas and also at one time lived in a town called Seduva. I have not yet uncovered the name of Itzyk's first wife, but she died young, after bearing five children named Zelmen, Berel, Harry, Joseph, and Louis. Itzyk remarried Zelda Katz and had another six children named Michael, Julius, Hyman, Max, Ida and Rosie.

Some of the family emigrated to South Africa. Others came to the United States, South America, and Israel.

I welcome any new information you have to share -- including pictures, stories, and current addresses. I would like to make this site a work in progress for everyone to share in.

L'Shana Tova,
