Material in this section comes from ______.

    The following two brothers, Alberto and Daniel were known as "Levy Levy" so their mother's maiden name was probably Levy also.
  • *Alberto - m. [??]
    Alberto Levy, a tailor, arrived in Temuco in 1900, after having sojourned in Buenos Aires (Argentina) and Santiago (Chile). May have moved back to Santiago by 1916
  • *Daniel - m. [??]
    Brother of Alberto Levy, came from Monastir in 1907, at the urging of his brother.
  • Another Levy Levy family.

  • Jaime Levy Levy - m. Rebeca Camhi Pardo
    They had no children. After Jaime's passing, Rebeca married Daniel Testa Sarfati. They also had no children.
  • Another pair of Levy brothers, came later. Their mother's name was apparently Arueste.

  • *Jaime Levy Arueste
  • *Teodoro Levy Arueste
  • *Moises - m. [??]
    Came from Monastir in 1907, at the urging of Alberto Levy.
  • *Isaac - m. [??]
    Was a founding member of the Centro Macedónico in 1916.
  • *Alfonso (Nissim) - m. *Sol Cassorla
    Alfonso came from Monastir in 1907, at the urging of Alberto Levy. His wife Sol came three years later (in 1910) with her brothers Samuel and Salvador.

  • The following two Israel families arrived in 1916.

  • *Moris - m. [??]
    Was a founding member, and "pro-secretary" of the Centro Macedónico in 1916.
  • *Yedidia - m. [??]
    The Albala brothers also came from Monastir in 1907, at the urging of Alberto Levy. In 1911, Salomón returned to Monastir, to get his and his brother's families.
    Their mother was apparently a Camhi.
    In 1911 or 1912, they encouraged their half-brother to come, too.

  • *Abraham Albala Massot - m.
    Half-brother to *Matías and *Salomón, arrived in 1911 or 1912.
    The twin Cassorla brothers came from Monastir in 1910, with their sister, Sol, who had been married to Alfonso Israel. They sent for their wives, who came a year later in 1911.
    The Cassorla brothers later owned a famous establishment in town known as La Maison de Lux.
    Apparently, their mother was a Cassorla, also. There were many apparently unrelated Cassorla families in Monastir.
