families related to Elizabeth Marks, who lived in Leeds from 1892

from Kiev or Odessa, possibly stopping for a while in Romania.
They emigrated to Chicago, through Halifax, with the Marks family;
and then part of these Kravitzes went on to Denver.
Additionally, she is looking for anyone who knew or has information
about Manfred Templer.
Originally from Brzesko, Poland, he was on the kindertransport,
and after the war joined the Merchant Marines in England.
His mother also survived. Her last name would also have been Templer.
Manfred apparently died about 20 years ago.
