Searching for KRAVIZTSKY and REZNIK #ukraine


Valentina Dora Krevisky
 

My great grandfather was Mauritzio Krivitzky (he was born in approximately 1886 in Russia/Ukraine). He was married to Dora Alperovich (born in 1889) she came a year after him to Argentina, 1913-14 approximately. They came under the JCA by Baron Hirsch to Basavilbaso, Entre Ríos (province) until they moved to Macia, Entre Rios where he died in May 1941. Shortly after that part of the family moved to Paraná, Entre Ríos. They have six children, Marcos Krivitzky (born in 1911 in Russia/Ukraine, Esther (born in 1913 Russia/Ukraine),  Ana Krivitzky (born in Entre Ríos 1916), Cecilia Krivitzky (Born in Entre Ríos 1919), Victor Kriviscky (Born in Entre Ríos in 1920) David Kriwisky (born in Hacia in 1921) and Ignacio Krevisky (my grandfather who was born in 1923 in MAcia Entre Ríos). Argentine government specially in rural areas misspell  the last names, so even they are all brothers and a sister from the same parents some have different last names, that happened often unfortunately. I would love to know more about my great grandfather  side of the family the only thing that my grandfather told me is that he was a welder in Russia, they had a hard life due progroms, persecutions and with the mandatory military service at that time. He was able to run away to Argentina and work in the field, collect some money to be able to bring his wife and two kids. I would love to know more about his parents, siblings etc, Unfortunately there are no records or manifest of the ship or other information, my family in Argentina y looking and requesting copies of the Ketuva, or other information from Macia and Basavilbaso but due to COVID those entities are not open. If you have any further information that can help, please let me know. 

Sincerly

Hi Valerie
My grandfather was born Israel Krevitsky in Aleksandria/Oleksandrya Ukraine (but it was then Russia).  We know his parents were Abraham and Yetta Krevitsky and that he had a sister named Mariasia.  That is it.  We know nothing else except that he immigrated to the United States in 1904 but we believe he left Russia a few years earlier.  We always thought he was from Odessa but discovered Aleksandria/Oleksandrya  on shis US Naturalization papers, and then later on many of his sister's children's documents.  Do you know what town or shtetl your family was from? my guess is that his name was changed to Mauritzio from something else like Moshe or Maurice or Max.  
Good luck

For what it's worth, and since it's such an unusual name, I had a brilliant math teacher named Arnie Krivitzky (spelling uncertain) in Brooklyn in the late 1960s (ugh). When I lost track of them he and his wife had one daughter, ?Laura Hope?

Last time I checked they were on Spokeo so they should be traceable. At that time they had addresses in New Jersey and Delray, Florida.

For whatever ...
