People & Place Names

The family records make reference to a great number of people and places in Argentina.  Many of these names are no longer familiar to us.  The following pages contain maps and lists of names that include where they are referenced and information of interest to us about them.  Each page contains names relevant to a particular locale and set of diaries, letters, etc.

We have included some key family members, but only in brief.  Key family members have their own pages with far more information.

Climate: – Argentina is in the southern hemisphere.  A school year is from mid-March to end of November, with a 2 week winter break in July.  The flat-lands (pampas) of southern Santa Fé and Córdoba provinces enjoy a temperate climate, where Winter weather is May through August (frosts but no snow - & it is typically warm in the sun out of the wind) and Summer weather is mid-November through mid-March.  Polo is played in the cooler months.
