#ancestry is what my eyes have been glued to all day long! These names in particular. Elena was my great grandmother's sister. In the 20s or 30s, she made the trip overseas with the intention of emigrating from Russia to NY. On the boat, she met Marcos Waintraub and fell in love. He had plans to settle in Buenos Aires, so when their ship ported in Argentina, she got off the boat and they settled there together. She sent a message to her sister informing her that she would not be arriving in New York in a few weeks as planned. My great grandma visited her sister once in 1950 and they kept in touch for a while via letters, but they eventually lost contact. My family has been looking for Elena's name, husband's name, and location for years, and today I found the location of their burial site in Buenos Aires, via the #jewishgen website. I'm trying to figure out how to locate any children or grand children that they may have had. Feeling quite a bit of wonder and so much emotion right now to see Elena's name in print and know that she was a real person, not just a romantic story from my childhood, and I really wish I could call my grandma and tell her all about this... She would be so amazed and thrilled that I "found" her Aunt Elena. I hope that where ever she is, she's looking down and smiling. #family #genealogy #jewishgenealogy #ashkenazi #jewsofig #jewsofinstagram #jewishhistory #jewishfamily #argentina #argentinajews #jewsinargentina #argentinianjews #jewishfamilies #russianjews #jewishancestry #ancestors #ancestrydotcom #waintraub #igersatl #igersatlanta #igersga #igersgeorgia #northgeorgia
