Hi everyone! I have a cousin, with business in the Ukraine, going to Kiev
soon. During that trip he is willing to do research in Korets, where our
ancestry comes from, prior to 1902. He asked me to find out where the vital
statistics could be found. Birth and death certificates, Burial sites,
Census records, marriage records and any other family information he could
find. It would be amazing for us all, if he were able to find an address or
location, where they actually grew up, to show the family. Thanks

Argentina help #general

Julia Lombardo
 

Hello everyone,

I was wondering if there is anyone on the board >from Argentina, or someone who is
fluent in Spanish? I have been working with a group in Argentina called AMIA. They
have volunteers. I am looking for the family of my maternal
great-great-grandmother. I got a lead >from the AMIA volunteers, but it's a phone
number in Buenos Aires. My Spanish is not good enough to call this woman and try to
explain my story. I have been emailing AMIA with the help of Google Translate.

I am kind of stuck :( The AMIA volunteers said the woman told them she is only
willing to speak to me, which makes this even harder.

Any advice? What should I do? I don't even know if this woman really has any
information for me.

Thanks!
