My grandfather's sister Zlata's first husband was Jacob (son of Eliokum)
SHMULOVITCH. He was born c 1865 and died in 1898 in Riga. The marriage
took place in Riga but, as Zlata was born in Mitau, Jacob could well have
come >from there also. There were no children - he died only two months
after the wedding, cause unknown, and I have no further details of him
(these were obtained >from the Latvian Archives) but thought this might be
of interest. Zlata's maiden name was JOEL and her second husband was Nochum

Best wishes,

SCHMUELOWITZ >from Mitau/Jelgava? I am trying to find out the original
surname of my great-grandfather who left Mitau at age 8 (born approx.
1884-5), traveled to South Africa (spent time there) and eventually came to
America. He went by Jack LEWIS. A relative often said the name was
SMALLOVICH and the soundex came up with SCHMUELOWITZ. We may have also had
a relative with the surname KATZIN. Thoughts anyone? Again, I appreciate
