Katz Genealogy & History

Katz is an old Ashkenazi Jewish and German surname. In the former case, it comes from the Hebrew initials of "kohen tsedek", meaning a priest of righteousness. As a German surname, it may originate near Katz Castle on the Rhine River. The castle's name comes from Katzenelnbogen, from the Latin Cattimelibocus, which comes from two Germanic tribes: Chatti and Melibokus. Katz family history begins with Bernardus Cattus zu Hamburg, recorded at some point somewhere in 1252. Katz genealogy boasts many noteworthy people, such as Nobel laureate in biology Bernard Katz, Finnish track and field Olympic medalist Elias Katz, and Winnipeg Mayor Sam Katz.
