Hi, my name is Judy Sibson. We, Judy and Pete Sibson, lived in Mufulira from 1971-1975. I taught at Mufulira Infant and Junior School and Pete worked at Chambishi mine. Our daughter, Kerri, was born in the mine hospital in Mufulira on 23rd September 1975.

I'm a German citizen who worked as a doctor in both hospitals in Mufulira 1974 and 1975. I am looking for my old friend Rex Fertig, his wife Nina and his children Ricky and Jaquie. Yesterday I followed the questions of Rex Fertig's last daughter Anastasia who lives in Paris (july/august 2006) and who wanted to know some details of the life of her father whom she apparently lost at the age of nine years (I learnt that Rex was 
murdered 11 years ago which I did not know).

I sent an e-mail to Anastasia Fertig but it did not arrive at her address (ana.fertig@gmail.com). Does anybody know her address and new e-mail-number; and does anybody know where Nina Fertig and her children Jaqueline and Ricky live today?

Furthermore I would like to know if anybody can tell me where my former colleagues from Ronald Ross and Malcolm Watson Hospital are to be found: Dr. Derek Harvey, Dr. Mc Coll, Dr. John Mc Nicoll, Dr. Mike Girdwood, Dr. Edward Kirwan, Dr. Peter Stewart, Mr. Eric Rea, Dr. Bhatt, Dr. Stuart Malcolm, Dr. Ingrid Rosenkranz?
Same to the hospital manager Mike Cook and his wife Jenny; The director of the Mufulira underground mine, Dr. Rolf Rosenkranz; the ingeneer Werner Hock and his wife Evelyne?

With kind regards - also from my wife Marlene who worked as Nurses tutor in the Ronald Ross - from an old fellow who still remembers with joy at a great time

Dear Sir / Madam,

I have recently discovered your website, very exciting, a window to my past. I was born in Mufulira in 1958 at the Malcolm Watson Hospital. We left for the UK in 67 when I was nine years old. I noticed an old friend on your contact page and sent her an 'e' mail, unfortunately it could not be delivered as the address is obsolete. Her name is Valda Redfern, I don't suppose you have any further information on her do you? My name is Graham Kirk and am now living in the UK, my 'e' mail address is gramhamkirk@yahoo.co.uk

I would be most grateful if you could add me to your contact list, please note 
the misspell of my name in the 'e' mail address is deliberate. 

Best regards,

Graham Kirk

Hi Ex-Muf folk,

What a joy to stumble apon this site. My Father (and us ex-kids) lived in Muf from 1963/4 - 1980. Vic Pretorius is his name, some of you might still remember him, he is alive and well and has retired in Uvongo, South Coast in South Africa with his wife Gill. 

Any old friends out there who remember me, I am Vic's youngest daughter, Salome Pretorius (now: Sally Lewitt) followed by Victor and Brenda. I reside in Vanderbijlpark, South Africa after living in the USA for 10 years. Miss the good old days of Magic, and looking at these photos brought a tear to the eye. 

Please feel free to make contact with me, sallylewitt81@hotmail.com or
