Re: new post: from KHERSON to ARGENTINA #ukraine

Erin,

In the Shtetlinks section there is a webpage devoted to the Jewish
agricultural settlement of Basovilbaso, Argentina in which many of the
Kherson emigrants lived. There is also a webpage of the Jewish
agricultural colonies of Southern Ukraine (Kherson especially). Our
family were sent to Argentina by Baron Hirsch, as most would have been
in those days, >from these colonies in Kherson.

On the Basovilbaso site, I found a file with a list of the settlers.
That and a site in Argentina that lists the settlers to Moises Villa
and Monigotes which were also Baron Hirsch colonies were gold mines
for my family. There is a Paya listed in the Basavilbaso list but she
is one of a huge family.

The Shtetlinks site is: http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/basavilbaso/

There is also a page about the Jewish agricultural colonies in the
Southern Ukraine where these early Argentinian Jews came from:
http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/Colonies_of_Ukraine/

The Moises Villa site index to surnames is:
http://www.generacionesmv.com/Generaciones/Generac_HTML/surnames.html.
Since you don't know Paya's surname, this may be tedious to go
through.

Best and Good luck,
Hatte Blejer

Re: Immigration reords of Argentina #ukraine

Errol Schneegurt
 

I did a search of the "Immigration records of Argentina" and found some
surnames I am interested in.
I had some of my relatives who left Europe and changed ships in Argentina
for the remaining trip to America.
Since the list did not contain given names I cannot be sure if there is a
true connection.
I was wondering if this list contains the names of persons that were just
passing through or only ones that applied for entry into Argentina. If the
list contains transients I should have found one of the surnames twice,
since two brothers had traveled together. The list contained only one.

one-time announcement post #ukraine

I just published my children's book, "The Yidishkeyt Tales: Moishe's Story." The book is an original children's picture book that brings to life the Jewish immigrant experience of Moishe Goldshtein (Morris Goldstein). Each page contains a few Yiddish words mixed in with English to form fun rhymes that children are sure to love. Many pages also contain real photos of my ancestors. The glossary in the back of the book further helps children to learn Yiddish words and to pronounce them as well. It helps children to learn Yiddish in a melodic, entertaining way, while also introducing them to the world of Jewish immigration. Children love hearing readers say the Yiddish words in rhyme. To my knowledge, there are no other books on the market quite like this one. I believe that many Jewish parents, grandparents, etc. would love to buy this book--especially as Chanukah aproaches. I just need a way to help them find out about it! :-)

"The Yidishkeyt Tales: Moishe's Story" is currently available to browse and purchase at the following link:
