South Africa SIG #SouthAfrica LOPATO and YANKELOWITZ #southafrica


Looking for any LOPATO families in South Africa. My great-grandmother Chana
LOPATO Cooper >from Siauliai was the sister of Abel LOPATO.(1853-1916) Abe
emigrated to South Africa with his wife Wichne (?). Their children were
Pinchas, Kayla Gita, Enya, Ethel, and Malka who married her first cousin
Kalman COOPER.
Could there be other LOPATO sibs and cousins in SA?
Also searching for any SA JANKELOWITZ family with ties to Providence, Rhode
Island. Pinchus YANKELOWITZ left Siauliai, Lithuania in 1910 for Boston and
Providence where he changed his name to Louis Yackolow. He was supposed to
have made a trip to SA to see family in his later years. He is my gf Benzion
SCHER's cousin.
TIA and please reply privately,
