Our origins

Argentina is a country of immigrants. Write a brief description of your ancestors: when they arrived in this country, their nationalities, why they chose Argentina, etc.
Let's see what our roots are like!

PS: As you know some of you are immigrants, too. You can write your own story.

My great grand parents came from the Bask country and France and my grandmothers came from Spain, Galicia and Vigo. My grandfathers were born in Argentina. As far as I know, one of my grandmothers came from Spain directly to Olavarría and she found it really hard to adapt herself to a new culture, new people, anew life.
I hope I can read about your ancestors soon.
