Cantor Katzin davened at the Sea Point Synagogue and led services there for
many years. He was, during his time, one of Cape Town's outstanding
chazzanim. As I remember, indeed with Riga beginnings and roots.

Cantor Moisey Katzin did spell his name that way, although his brother
used
Katzen. However, unlike the Katzins to which the original enquiry
referred,
this Katzin/ Katzen family came >from Riga, and before that >from Dankere
(Glazmanka) in Courland.
