Finding Records in South Africa #general

Debbie Bozkurt <debbieinscotland@...>
 

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.

Thanks

Re: R' Naftali KATZ #general

<<My grandfather Pinchas LERNER lived in Tsfat in the late 1800's-early 1900's. He
claimed descent >from R' Naftali KATZ (died about 1719), author of the S'michas
Chachamim.
<<My gggrandfather Harav Binyamin HACOHEN lived in Kosov around 1850, and claimed
descent >from R'Naftali KATZ.
<<Benjamin Lerner
<<Brooklyn, NY, / Jerusalem

I have been on a similar search for several years as I also have an ancestral line
that claims descent >from R' Naftali KATZ, the Smichat Chachamim. Although I have
done extensive research, I am still missing about 3 generations. This is partly
due, of course, to the lack of civil records >from that time period. The main
problem, it seems, is that the missing ancestors were not recorded in the
rabbinical literature because they were not prominent rabbis or, for that matter,
were not rabbis.

The ancestral surname I have been researching is HORENSTEIN (>from Ukraine). In that
earlier time period, they, like your ancestors, used the appelation HaKohen. I
have traced them back to Berestechko around the end of the 18th century.

As part of my search, I have developed an extensive genealogical tree for the
descendants of R. Naftali Katz. I couldn't find an exact match for your ancestor,
although I did find two descendents of his brother, R' Jesaia Katz, named Benjamin
HaKohen:
One was R' Benjamin Benish HaKohen, a student of R' Akiva Eiger. I don't have
dates or a location for him; however, his son was born in Warta in 1790. Moreover,
his greatgrandson was R' Avraham Benjamin HaKohen; he died in Warta in 1881.

I don't know whether these LEWKOWICZ variants >from Radziejow, Poland are related to
each other or not but as administrator of the LEFKOWITZ surname project at Family
Tree DNA, I can tell you that we have five members >from Poland with variants of the
name LEFKOWITZ and none of them are genetically related to each other. I think that
many people independently adopted variants of this surname. Particularly, as you
notice, there are many males with the given name Lewek. Maybe the Lewek's of
Radziejow in the early 19th century were related to each other, or maybe it just
means Lewek was a common name.

Translations of two yiddish postcards needed #belarus

Touger, Jerry <jtouger@...>
 

I have posted scans on ViewMate of two postcards sent >from Minsk
gubernya to the US in 1911 and 1912. They are written in a rather
florid Yiddish hand that people I know who read some Yiddish have been
unable to decipher -- lovely as calligraphy, but legible?? I would
greatly appreciate it if anyone can help translate these. (I have one
or two more if you can manage these.)
