The Genealogy of Yerachmiel and Etie Bark

Yerachmiel Bark was born in 1864 in Berezovka, then part of Imperial Russia and nowadays a city in the Ukraine. He married circa 1885 his cousin, Etie nee Slovesnick, born in 1870 either in Berezovka or Odessa, the child of Leah Barg (Yerakhmiel’s aunt) and Simkhe Slovesnick.

Yerachmiel and Etie Bark

This branch of the family had a special spelling for their surname BARK, later some of it’s members changed the spelling into BARCK.

Familiar tradition was that this was the result of a clerical error in one of their documents although rumor went that the change was made in order to avoid conscription to the Czar Army.

Yerakhmiel and Etie left Russia for Argentina in the early twenties with four of their children, and settled in Moises Ville (province of Santa Fe).

Their second child, daughter Sheive, was already married to a fellow Berezovker (Solomon Glatt) and they emigrated instead to the USA.

At the arrival to Ellis Island on Apr 19, 1922 the Glatts gave Yerakhmiel’s address in Berezovka as voucher, therefore it’s safe to asume Yerakhmiel didn’t emigrate to Argentina prior to this date.

A family gossip tells that Yerachmiel wished to go to the USA himself but couldn’t get a permit, while emigration to Argentina was automatically granted due to the fact that he had family there (his brother Shaie Barg who had emigrated in 1905 and Aunt Jane, the earliest Barg to emigrate to Argentina, back in late XIX century, as well as some cousins (Isaias Barg for example) and was therefore eligible for automatic citizenship.

Yerachmiel was a fabric dyer and had a shop in Moises Ville.

Later he moved to Buenos Aires where he died on the 8 day of Marhesvan 5688, 22 October 1928, and is buried in the Liniers Cemetery. His wife Etie survived him by 14 years and died on the 3 of Kislev 5702 (December 12, 1942) and is buried in the same grave.

Following is a list of their descendants. Preceding their name, a number stating which generation they are starting from Yerachmiel and Etie.

Members whose e mail are known have been hyper linked (in blue). Biographical notes are given only on deceased members.

You can “jump” directly to the trees of their five children: Simche (named after Etie’s father), Shirley (Sheive) probably named after her parents common grandfather Shaie, Manie, Yakov (Yankl) and Nahum.

(2) Simja-Simkha-Simón BARCK [24.1.1893-2.4.1949] & Eva BARG de BARCK [11.6.1894-26.1.1976] Simkha was born Jan 24 1893 in Berezovka.

As a youngster he learned the trade of photography, then a complicated subject since everything (from emulsions and plates to developing and printing) had to be done manually.

His teacher was an Armenian craftsman from Odessa.

Eva (Yeva), born in Odessa on June 26 1894, was his second cousin both from her maternal and paternal side. She was the twenty first child of Zelig Barg, the owner of a large grocery store in Odessa. Her mother, Reitse, was Zelig’s second wife and the sister of his deceased first wife.

After the First Wife death, Zelig was left a widower with 10 (or 11?) children. His sister in law married him and bore him 10 more. Eva was born near her father’s 67 birthday!. As a young girl, Eva worked in her father’s store.

Simkha had an accident at the age of 18, fracturing his femur. In those days this was a life threatening situation. After he recovered they got married (around 1913). It seems that the couple had an earlier child then Mario, that died in infancy. Simkha and Eva fled Russia in 1922. They traveled through Romania (were their son Shloime was born) and eventually arrived to Argentina on board the SS ZEELANDIA.

They settled in Moises Ville but after some years moved to Buenos Aires, first to the Province (Puente Alsina) and later to the City.

Simkha was killed in a road accident on the 2 April 1949, in the city of La Plata, on his way to Mike Yedlin’s wedding.

He was buried in Liniers but when his widow emigrated to Israel, his remains were reburied in Kibbutz Mefallesim in Israel. Eva died on January 26 1976 while visiting her daughter’s family in Brazil. Her remains were also repatriated and she lies by his side in the Kibbutz
