The listing of
names recorded in our database includes the heads of investigated families and
some of their ancestors, spouses, descendants, kin that have been able to identify
for curiosity or that serve to bridge the incorporation of more families. Dates or
living people are not included in this site.
included a number of individuals that appear with a question mark, those of which
we still don't know either the first
name or the surname. There are also included the children of a couple of which we
don't know the name, in the list they figure as Hijo1 Surname, Hijo2 Surname, etc.
(Son1 Surname, Son2 Surname) Also have been included all individuals with repeated
name of which we don't know the last name.
spelling of the last name is according to the one that is used by the
individual, as we know. The data from birth or marriage records have not been recorded because there
are usually mistakes especially in those older records. It is suggested that you attempt your search with different spellings if the
family name your are looking for is not found. Sometimes in different records surnames
are spelled in different way, and sometimes there are recorded different
surnames for the same person. I have tried to show most of them. For
example a woman was recorded as GRIMBERG-KAUFMAN-WOLFIN in three
different civil records.
See please above: the signature of Faitel Krupik says clearly "Faitel
Crupik". He was 19 in 1899, having arrived four years before to
Argentina. This handwriting may be the only one he known in latin
characters at these times.
All his brothers, his descendants and himself years later were Krupik.
His tombstone shows also Krupik. We must agree that even a signature is
not definitive to know a surname or to spell it.
In some of the
lists of passengers available, I have substituted last names that figure in the original
document for the current last names. There are understandable
differences in many cases, generally orthographic. But the sound of both spellings
usually coincides, if the European pronunciation is applied in one case and the
Latin in the other.
