Re: NANKIN - Lithuania to South Africa #southafrica

One of the most helpful resources that has not been mentioned is the SA
National Archives. When doing a search on specific names you are interested
in, you would find:

NAKIN, 12 entries
NANKIN, 175 entries
RATHOUSE, 28 entries
RIGHTHOUSE, 55 entries
ROTHAUS, 8 entries

As an example of how these entries could provide vital information about
relationships with several of the family names, variant spellings used, and
even an opportunity to determine the original spelling of one of the family
names, the following entries are provided:

Entry for the estate in 1970 of Klass Maurice Nakin known as Morris Nankin,
born Pietermaritzburg, living with Jeanette Werner (this might not be a
Jewish entry, but shows how someone can assume a name that might be
considered Jewish).

Entry for the naturalization in 1911 of Louis Nankin and children.

Entry for change of name in 1951 >from Nankin to Nathanson (no first names
given, so it is difficult to determine which Nankin this refers to).

Entry for the death in 1904 of a Samuel Rothaus alias Rathouse, whose wife
Clara survived him.

Entry for restitution of conjugal rights in 1963 for Sarah Rebecca Nankin
Righthouse Politzky (born Nankin, formerly Righthouse) >from Morris Politzky
(there is no record for the Righthouse she married).

Entry for the death in 1939 of a Rachel Schiffman Righthouse known as
Rathouse whose husband Abraham Righthouse predeceased her.

In addition, a note for Mike Getz, there were several court cases involving
the Nankin family and Abraham Getz and Ariel Lionel Getz. Are you related?

Dear Stan,
Thank you for the messages. I have not heard of Judith or Solly Nankin, but
have the feeling Solly might be one of my Lippa Nankin's brothers'
descendants. I would like to write to Judith to see how they figure into the
family. Or, you are welcome to pass my email address on to her if you feel
uncomfortable handing out her address.

I did take the advice of another poster and went through NASA and found the
following on Sarah Righthouse:
Illiquid Cases. Restitution of Conjugal Rights. Morris Politsky versus
Sarah Rebecca Politsky (formerly RIGHTHOUSE, born NANKIN). Dated 1963.
In a news article in Boston dated 1961, Sarah Righthouse returned to see her
sisters after 47years. Is this regarding a divorce >from Morris Politsky? In
any event, I believe this to be our Jennie Nankin's sister Sarah.

I so appreciate your help. Will now go back to the South Africa site and do
some more thorough searching.

Thank you again,
