Dear SA SIG discussion group members,

I'm looking for information on my late great-aunt Leah (Elka?) Katz, nee
Wolpert, born ~1891 in Keidan, Lithuania and possible descendants. The
name
of her father was Notel Wolpert and her mother was Sarah-Devorah Biron.
I only know that in 1946-47 she was in South Africa (I don't knew when she
emigrated >from Lithuania) and had been in touch (several letters) with her
half-sister, my late grandmother, Rywa Trocki-Musnicki, nee Wolpert, and
with my late mother, Shifra (Sofia) Werber, nee Trocki-Musnicki, who lived
at that time in Brussels, Belgium.

My great-aunt was then - in 1947, living with her husband, Moses or
Moshe?
Katz at the following address: 49, Berea Rd. , Bertrams, Johannesburg.
However, 2 letters sent - >from Israel - in 1962 were never answered and
the
last one was even returned in January 1963 as undeliverable.

There is an estate probate file for a Leah Katz in the Transvaal archives,
but I could not find out if this is that of my great-aunt.
