Celia never turned her back on religion

LESLEY TURNER of Northampton wants to find descendants of her relatives who fled from Latvia.

Lesley's maternal grandmother, Celia/Cecilia Simon, married out of the Jewish faith, but never turned her back on the religion. Her father was named Isaac.

Cecilia had a sister Sarah (Sadie) who married Maurice (Morris) Levy. She had a stepson, who may have been called Solomon. Sarah died in Donisthorpe Hall around 10-15 years ago.
