BERGHAUS GIRLS:  
IN SEARCH OF FORMER BERGHAUS GIRLS-ULFT GROUP

  September 10, 2010
Thu 9th September 2010



Dear MN editor:

Na een lange tijd van zoeken kwam in vanavond op de website terecht van de Berghaus Girls. Ik woonde begin jaren 70 in Ulft Gemeente Gendringen in de Gelderse achterhoek.

Bij ons in het dorp woonden vele Filipijnse meisjes. Zo ook bij ons in de straat op de Valkenhof. Zij werkten allen bij Berghaus, en woonden met meerdere in een huis. Mijn moeder is van Indische afkomst en al snel waren er velen bij ons kind aan huis en ik bij hun. Zo ook Chit Balboa en onder andere Melly haar achternaam ben ik helaas kwijt. Evenals de meeste van de foto's uit die tijd. De foto van Chit heb ik nog altijd.

Ik zou het zo leuk vinden haar terug te vinden en te kunnen schrijven met haar en misschien zelfs nog andere meisjes uit die tijd terug te vinden. Nu zag ik op een van de foto's van de website dat Chit Balboa erop staat  ik sluit deze foto bij als ook de namen van alle mensen op de foto.

L-R: Esther P. Lucero, Bella Borja Moises, Curie Arts-Sawit, Chit Balboa Sy, Helen P. Amaca, Neth PlataSarao, Susan C., Ms. Espie Oliveros Ramos, Carlina dela Cruz, Beth Sison, Ben Amaca, Oliver Sarao. Back from left to right Renato Moises, Dhan Lucero, Harrie Arts, and Pons Ramos.





Ik zou U willen vragen zou U mij kunnen helpen aan het adres van Chit of misschien kent U iemand die mij aan haar adres kan helpen. Ik begrijp uit de informatie van de website dat zij nu in Canada moet wonen. Ik hoop dat U mij kan helpen.

Ik hoor graag van U. Misschien kent ook nog anderen die in de Valkenhof gewoond hebben te Ulft dan zou ik graag met ze in contact komen.

Groeten,

Marga Geleijnse - de Jong
