Looking for Descendants of Abraham CHIATT from Grinkiskis, Lithuania to Argentina and South Africa #lithuania

Maria Krane
 

Hello Everyone,

I am trying to help out a lady who doesn't speak English, looking
for her CHIATT/KHAET/CHAITT/KHAETOVICH relatives originally >from
Grinkiskis, Lithuania. The patriarch of the family was Abraham CHIATT
who died prior to 1912 when his widow, Ethel Leah (born @1848),
traveled to Argentina with their daughter Sheindl,who was born in 1891.

Their two sons, David and Itzjak CHIATT, traveled to South Africa
(possibly before or around the same time) and supposedly changed their
surname. Sheindl used the name Sofia in Argentina and married her
sweetheart, Alfredo GARTEMBLUM, whom she had met in Lithuania
(in Argentina). The original GARTEMBLUM surname was GOR.

If you have any information that might help, please contact me
privately at MariaKrane@.... Thank you.

Regards >from sunny South Florida,
Maria Krane

When my father came to America in, 1927 he needed a Visa which also required an
interview at the US Embassy in Lviv. Are there any records of these interviews
that still exist? I have to pass on one of the questions he was asked "how many
legs does am American chicken Have?"

This week's Yizkor book excerpt on the JewishGen Facebook page #general

Bruce Drake <BDrake@...>
 

"Defense in October 1905," >from the Yizkor book of Yekaterinoslav-Dnepropetrovsk
(Dnipropetrovsk) in Ukraine, captures the drama in the town when its Jews first
become aware that a pogrom was gathering steam and would soon be at their doors.
The pogrom in Yekaterinoslav-Dnepropetrovsk was part of a wave of pogroms that
broke out between 1903 and 1906, claiming thousands of Jewish lives. As its
title implies, much of the chapter is devoted to how the community organized its
defense, the battles that ensued and the extent to which it succeeded in ending.
The "official" count of casualties, according to the author, was 126 Jews were
killed in the pogrom by the "rioters" and the soldiers' shooting, and 47 rioters
were killed, although he put the number of dead rioters at 63.
