My ancestors came from Ekaterinoslav and Teleshti to Brazil, through JCA.
is it possible to search for their names in the archives?

Hello Salmo. I got some immigration data and documents regarding Brazil by searching at My Heritage. It is probable to get this information by searching also in other Genealogy sites. I can be of help if you wish to search for people buried in  Jewish cemeteries in Brazil. Best regards . Paulo Abrahamsohn. São Paulo. Brazil.

Hello Salmo,

 

I hope that Teleshti is in fact Teleneshty, and if so, we do have some records from that place in our JewishGen/Bessarabia database. I also recommend you to post a message at the Discussion group with hashtage #bessarabia with the surnames/names/years  you are researching.   There are members interested in Bessarabia who might have same names/towns in their family trees.

 

All the best,

Hi Salmo,
a good (free) resource is FamilySearch's Brazilian Rio de Janeiro Immigration Cards. Although restricted to Rio de Janeiro, if you do not know from where did they enter Brazil, it's worth a try.

Hello Salmo  

Try contacting the Sociedade de Genealogia Judaica do Rio de Janeiro - SGJRJ - Página inicial | Facebook.

There is another one in São Paulo, the Sociedade Genealógica Judaica de São Paulo, jgssp.org@....

The Centro da Memória do Museu Judaico de São Paulo  has some documents on JCA immigrants. atendimento@museujudaicosp.org.br.

Good luck
