Israel Death Index - Anschel and Ida Katz #israel

dennis gries

                Is there a searchable Israeli death index?

Recently, Rose and Theo have offered hints about getting death certs.  My targets are siblings of my maternal grandmother and their children.

I have looked at FindAGrave and BillionGraves, and there is one person close.

Precisely, the earliest pair is Ida (perhaps born Ides) nee Puretz, and married to Anshel  Katz.

Ida was born 13 Feb 1899 and this is a compilation of notes that I have on her:

per XX > in Koln married a man from Breslau.  In 1935 left for Palestine.  ( died in Israel)

            Per YY > had one son, who died young - in his 20s.

                        Found some papers - 1966 from I. Katz,  Keren Kajemet 31 - Tel Aviv -

Per YY - this is Ida Puretz Katz . Also have 1950 receipts of packages to A(nschel). Katz and I. Katz at the same address (Blvd).


I see that there is a rather famous Asher Anchel Katz, and wonder if our Anschel had a first name not known to me.  My sources are long deceased.   I don’t know Hebrew, but can labor through, esp with machines translations.


Any help will be thanked profusely.
