Eduardo L. Balbachan <elb@...>
My name is Eduardo Balbachan and I'm looking for any data about my
"Balbachan", "Bolbachan" or "Bolbochan" are three interchangeable
spelling of my surname which appear in different members of my family.
By oral tradition of my relatives I know that they came >from Bessarabia
(nowadays Moldova or Romania)
They departed >from Odessa, shipped by the Jewish Colonization
(JCA- Baron Maurice Hirsch) on 5th october 1894 aboard of the steamship
"Bosforo" and arrived Genoa where they took a second steamship "Manilla"
finally they arrived on 27th november 1894 to Argentina where they
two colonies of the JCA. The original group who arrived on that trip was
composed by my greatgrandfather Mosche Balbachan, his wife Kaile ROITMAN
and six children: Haim, Baruch, Selmann, Lazar (my grandfather), Meilach and
Leiba Balbachan (or BALBATZAN as they were annotated in the ship list). The whole group who
came to Argentina in that trip was named Soroki II because all they were
gathered at Soroki (a city of Besarabia
nowadays belonging to Moldova). Here in Argentina they lived in two
colonies named Akkerman I and II (which are a part of the great colony
Lucienville of Entre Ríos).
My grandfather Lazar was married to Witta ABRAMZON (or Abramson) here in
Argentina. Witta Abramzon had also come in that ship (Manilla) in the
same trip, with her parents Abram and Brana Abramzon.
I also know that there were some Balbachan who lived at Kishinev
