JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Re: Colonia Montefiore--what was it? #general

Actually, I have conflicting information on when Montefiore was funded. By
reviewing "History of the Argentinean Jews" by Ricardo Feierstein, I got
two different answers:

- pg. 104. Montefiore established in 1902, over an area of 29,075 ha (source
- pg. 102. Colonies established between 1905 and 1914, list includes
Montefiore (source Abraham Gavis).

According to Shalom Argentina - "Tracing Jewish Settlement", a guide to
the colony circuit, Colonia Montefiore was established by the Jewish
Colonization Association of Baron Maurice de Hirsch - one of the latest
colonies to be founded (1912).
