> My name is Karina Heffel and I'm originally from Buenos Aires, Argentina;
> although I currently live in Texas.
> I'm researching the surname Heffel, originally from the Sachsen Provinz in
> Germany, later on settled in the Dobrinka village in Russia.
> My great-grandfather was George Heffel, born in Dobrinka Sept 22 1866,
> Apr 13 1943 in Entre Rios, Argentina. He was married to Katharina Block
> (born Jan 12 1872 in Alt-Galka, Saratov) she died on 23 Apr 1939 in Entre
> Rios as well.
> George and Katharina moved to Argentina from Russia in 1905 with their
> children at the time. I know nothing about my g-grandfather George
> parents or siblings; only that at least one of his brothers moved to the
> United States instead, and he might have fathered a son who later on
> a high rank officer in the US Navy, and a well known veteran from WWII or
> the Korean War who was awarded a medal for his accomplishment on a risky
> mission (that was on an Argentine newspaper clipping my granfather
> had when my dad was little).
> I'm hoping I can connect with those relatives on my g-grandfather Heffel's
> side to exchange information and learn about each other's past.
> For all those interested, here's the link to the page I created on the
> internet for the Heffels and Blocks in Argentina with all othe information
