Genealogy - Rosh Hashanah

A huge street fair was held on the Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah. Argentina has the largest Jewish population in South America. We perused the street fair, and the most interesting thing to me was a genealogy booth, complete with genealogists and computers hooked up to a database, sponsored by the government of Argentina.

Even more impressive to me was the long line of people of all ages standing out in the cold for their turn to search for their ancestors.
