I have just heard the very sad news that Martha has passed away. I am
deeply saddened and I know she will be missed by many.
Martha put a great deal of time and effort into the Jewish Genealogy of
Latvia particularly Courland. She was a Speaker at the Conference in Boston
delivering a paper on Genealogy in Latvia and as an Historian eager to
document all aspects of the history of Latvia. Her helpful nature was
appreciated by all as she was ever ready to give advice and help. She did a
great deal for he Genealogical Society in Israel.
It is indeed a sad day and we have lost a good friend and Researcher.
