The Galver family lived in Mir for generations.

Idel and Fania Galver had three sons and three daughters. Two of Chaim's sisters went to Palestine, Neima Shafran about 1922 and Batya/Basl Sickler about 1934. His two brothers, Mula and Roddle, and another sister, Meisl, remained in Mir. They and Chaim's parents, Idel and Fania were killed by the Nazis.

Chaim and Feiga Galver and their children left in 1940. Between 1940-1946 all of the family went from Belarus to Siberia. While they lived in Siberia, Rodel died of hunger.

In 1947 they left Europe for Israel on the Exodus and eventually all settled in Israel.
