Arusha / Retzlaff Family - Usa River
12 October, 2012, 07:02
Hi everyone,

I am looking for any pictures, information or memories about the Retzlaff family from Arusha. My grand father Paul Retzlaff moved to Arusha in 1933 from Germany with his wife Hildegard onto a farm called Sauti Ya Simba in Usa River. My brothers (Paul & Rob) and I were born in Arusha and our parents (Godfrey & Vera) left in about 1961 to Rhodesia.

My grandfather Paul had three children, Horst (married to Carin from Sweden)who farmed on Sauti Ya Simba, Sigi (married Karl Pollman) and my father Godfrey. In 1939 my grandfather married Martha Vance - who was the matron at the Arusha European School

Any help greatly appreciated
