Re: Early 1900s records from Rosario, Argentina #latinamerica

Most people emigrating to South America in the late 19th century & early 20th century did so through the Baron de Hirsch JCA organization to settle in agricultural communities.  The records for these communities are located at the Central Archives for the History of the Jewish People in Jerusalem.  

The files may include the contract signed for the land.  The JCA did census updates on these communities.  These showed when the arrived, often with the ship name.  Names were added showing births, marriages and the disappearance would indicate the death.

Unfortunately,  the archives will not do look ups for you.  There are finding aids on the archives website searchable by surname.
