Re: Genealogical research in Argentina #latinamerica
Hola a todos,
Here is the website of The Central Archives for the History of the Jewish People (CAHJP) in Jerusalem. Last month they reopened their doors and it is possible to do personal research there with some restriction because the Covid19. I recommend you to look in their online catalogue (Search Holdings) to learn about the kind of information from different countries that is possible to find there. Some of the archives are digitazed, but as I know there are not online.
May be one of the most interest files accesible online to Latin American researchers is the list of individual files from JCA colonists in Argentina. Pay attention that it is only a list of surnames by Colony, and may be some mispelling of them, but it is a good start point if you have not much information about your relatives. The list includes only those colonists that arrived to the Colonias and sign any kind of contract with the JCA. Those people that arrived to the Colonias (even with JCA help) but didn't had contracts are not registered in an orderly way, if any. The individual files are accesible only at the Archives in Jerusalem and include all the contract interaction along the years between each colonist and the JCA.
I have not any personal relationship with the archives. If you need more information you can contact me privately and I will try to answer according my experience.
Hope this is of help to you,
