I have a cutting >from the Jewish Telegraph newspaper of Manchester >from June
1954 which speaks about a Mrs Mille LANDIS of Sydney, Australia.
Mrs LANDIS was apparently the aunt of Mrs Eva LEWIS (nee GOLDBERG), wife of
Solomon LEWIS (of Manchester and Preston, Lancashire).
The article says that Mrs LANDIS:
- travelled to Manchester in 1927 and again in 1954;
- was a Synagogue Delegate to the Council of Jewish Women in Sydney;
- was born in London in approx 1900, the daughter of a Chazan;
- left for Australia in 1914 with her father, mother and 9 siblings;
- had a husband who died in abt 1953
Solomon and Eva LEWIS were my grandparents, but I had never heard of Mrs
LANDIS until I came across this clipping, and I never knew of an Australian
family connection. I do not know what Mrs LANDIS's maiden name was.
I'd be most grateful if anyone has any information about this lady and her
Many thanks in anticipation.
