      Hi,
      My father came from Keidan and had a friend Chaim Linda who was from Keidan and lived  in South Africa.

My father's family were originally Linde or Lindait as known in Lithuanian. His sisters had their married surnames naturally. My paternal grandmother and all her children and grandchildren were killed together with all the Jewish community there. Wonderful that you'll all be saying Kaddish for everyone and thank you. I'll ask my husband to say Kaddish at synagogue here.

      > This year, on Sunday, Aug. 28, 2011, Keidaners and Keidan descendents in the U.S. will mark the 70th anniversary of that day at the Museum of Jewish Heritage, 36 Battery Place in Manhattan. We will have a brief ceremony, a chance to recall the vibrant community that was and the lives that were ended so cruelly, followed by light refreshments.
