Geoff Tollman writes about his Uncle Sam who came backmore ... to South Africa from fighting in World War I. He took a lump sum in army payment and started his first enterprise. From a small general store for the diamond diggers, to owning a boarding house he progressed to buying and developing a large family home and eventually set up a chain of butchers shops – a very colorful character was Uncle Sam.
From the 1830’s millions of people from all overmore ... the world have entered the USA. Towards the end of the nineteenth century this included Jews from Eastern Europe many of whom became well known. Ellis Island, a museum and major tourist attraction, has a wall which is inscribed with many of the names of these immigrants.
