Many of the Jewish immigrants to South America in the late 1800s - early 1900s came
through the Jewish Colonization Association of Baron Moshe Hirsch.

The Central Archives for the History of the Jewish People (CAHJS) in
Jerusalem contains the archives of the Paris headquarters of the
Jewish Colonization Association. You might be able to find records
there. I was able to find a number of records of my great-grandfather
and his brother and their families, who lived in the JCA colony
Mauricio in Argentina in the early 1890s.

I was also able to find records of their departure >from Argentina on
the "Hamburg Passenger Lists" manifests.

Hope this helps,
Moshe Davis

Another source of immigration information, in addition to Daniel Horowitz's
suggestion is the collection called "Hamburg Passenger Lists, 1850-1934" on, which includes ships destined for Argentina. I found a relative of
mine headed to Buenos Aires >from Latvia listed in that collection. If you don't
have a world subscription, you can access it at either a public library or
FamilySearch center.
