Spanglish Glossary
Our ancestors in the Argentine spoke Spanglish, a mixture of English interspersed with words and phrases derived from the Spanish they used in their everyday activities.  We attempt to explain the terms.
Our ancestors used the currencies and measures of Argentina, Germany, Mexico, UK, USA, and Venezuela. This page provides conversion tables and explains how we arrive at modern equivalents for past measures and monetary values of the 19th century when each country, state, province, or even city had its own systems.
