To answer Rachelle Litt's posting:
"What shipping Lines should I be focusing on for emigration
from Soroca Moldova, Chernvitzi Ukraine to Argentina in the early1900's - about 1930? Most of the family who came to American went by

The ship might have might have passed through Brazil first. I am
looking for Meyer Znayde and his wife Tsilya and their children Samuel
and Sarah (there was a third child also but I do not have the name)

landing at the pier of Santos in 1936. I am looking for this manifest

Family Search (http://www.familyseach.org) has a great collection of
South American records, including visa information for Brazil and

In checking records for Brazil we find what looks like your family:
Meyer ZNAYDE and Silvia ZNAYDE with daughter, Sarah ZNAYDE IANCHEL, in

(But always use the global search engine as well..just in case.)
Search on both spellings as Soundex didn't bring up both at the same
time. These cards have other useful identifying information that may
lead you to other records or places. There are photos with both sets.
Note that many records have not yet been indexed, but the images are
available which you can search through as if you were at the archive
and presented with a record book. Time consuming, but often
rewarding. More indexes are always being uploaded, so check back.
This is an excellent, free resource.
