My Great Grandparents Chaim Zanvel Ptashny and Chane Rochel Gutkin immigrated to the Jewish Agricultural Colonies in Argentina (Lucienville) in 1893.

Before that, they lived in Efengar, Kherson, a Jewish Agricultural Colony. During the last few years I have gathered some information about Efengar.

I found two interesting passages  about Efengar (in Hebrew Yafe Nahar)  in the Book "Chaklaim Iehudim Bearbot Rusia".

I would like to know where my great grand parents came from before they settled in Efengar. Is it possible to find lists about this.?

I wrote to an archive in ukraine (Dniepropetrovsk) but it seems difficult  to get anything (deposit of money etc.)
