I am trying to help out a lady who doesn't speak English, looking
for her CHIATT/KHAET/CHAITT/KHAETOVICH relatives originally >from
Grinkiskis, Lithuania. The patriarch of the family was Abraham CHIATT
who died prior to 1912 when his widow, Ethel Leah (born @1848),
traveled to Argentina with their daughter Sheindl,who was born in 1891.
Their two sons, David and Itzjak CHIATT, traveled to South Africa
(possibly before or around the same time) and supposedly changed their
surname. Sheindl used the name Sofia in Argentina and married her
sweetheart, Alfredo GARTEMBLUM, whom she had met in Lithuania
(in Argentina). The original GARTEMBLUM surname was GOR.
If you have any information that might help, please contact me
privately at MariaKrane@.... Thank you.
