Carlos Glikson

Mario Jeifetz has created a genealogical website for Moises Ville, the
Jewish agricultural colony founded in the late 19th century in the province
of Santa Fe, in Argentina. The page has a link to a full English version.

A group of settlers of Jewish agricultural colonies arrived on board the SS
Weser on August 14 1889, fleeing pogroms and persecutions. Two years later
Baron Maurice de Hirsch founded the Jewish Colonization Association
(J.C.A.). The first families had to suffer all kinds of ordeals when
agreements made with the land sellers failed. The first lands were not
available. The seller of alternative lands failed to deliver - they were not
immediately transferred to their fields, and they did not receive the
animals and farming tools, as had been contracted. Finally, they managed to
settle and the community gradually grew while new colonies were established
in Argentina.

You may find information of historical and genealogical interest in Mario
Jeifetz's website for Moises Ville, Medanos and Monigotes, and also
information on the groups arriving >from the Podolia, Bessarabia, Kherson and
Grodno areas.
