I have just started to research my grandmother's family and am interested in receiving and sharing any information about Florence Katz Israel.
She was born in Logaisk near Minsk White Russia on March 14, 1897 or 1898. She died approx 1979.
Father: Lazar David Katz from a little town near Vilno White Russia (1845-1907). He had a law practice in Minsk. Mother: Sonia Riva Belking born in Logaisk (1867-1897).
Paternal grandfather and grandmother: Moishe and Sara Katz, both from a little town near Vilno White Russia. They ran an inn in the village and apparently had some financial interest in local forestry.
Maternal grandfather and grandmother: Rev Eli Belking (from Minsk) and Dvaska Belking (from Logaisk). Rev Eli was the spiritual rabbi of a small town near Minsk.
