Re: Jewish gauchos Argentina #latinamerica

I have not seen this entire thread so am not sure if this is what you are looking for. I volunteered and transcribed records that were about colonists in Argentina in places like Moisesville. I seem to have my spreadsheets but not my email messages. I do not recall who was leading this initiative. Based on the properties of the spreadsheet, this was done in the summer of 2014. It’s likely I read about it on the Jewishgen Discussion list, so perhaps searching that archive might find something. I know this was just one of the locations in Argentina were eastern European Jews were settled. I don’t off-hand know the other names.
Perhaps the person that worked on these records might read this and respond.
When I googled “Moisesville” I found that it is now known as Moíses Ville. There is a Kehillalinks page: https://kehilalinks.jewishgen.org/Mscibow/katzovits.html
This link is to a Wiki page about the place: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mois%C3%A9s_Ville. There were many other sites listed when I googled.
By the way, I have no personal interest in this place but just chose to do this transcribing because I could connect to using Spanish.
