Dear FrenchSIG members,
For those of you who have made good use of his many compilations of the
1808 name change lists, and 1851 Jewish community censuses of Alsace
and Lorraine, those invaluable contributions to Jewish genealogical
research in those regions, I am sad to inform you that Pierre Katz
passed away on March 22 at age 79, and was buried in the cemetery of
Marmoutier, in France.
All of us who labor with family research in those areas owe him a deep
debt of gratitude for his labor of love, and important contributions
to the field!
