I am trying to trace my Great Uncle's movements >from Poland (ibzica kujswska I
think) in the early part of this century. His name was Solly LACHMAN/LATCHMAN. I
have been told by his grandson that he has photos of him in South African. Solly
married in 1906 in London and his wife was on the census with her family in 1901. I
can only assume he was in South Africa between the late 1890s and early 1900s. His
sister married bymy great grandfather in 1898 in London so by means of deduction
if the whole family left about the same time (parents and another brother and
sister) Solly may have entered South Africa about 1898.

Has anyone any idea how I can go about tracing his movements in South Africa, was
there a weekly jewish paper. I tried the South African database but couldn't find
anything. Don't know if there are any records of passenger movements.

Any help would most appreciated.
