Some names in the Kitroser & Kitrosser genealogy that you can find out on this web pages.

The family name came from a town named "Chetrosu" ó "Kitrosy", near Soroki in Bessarabia (Actually Republic of Moldova). See map.

Besarabia (Basarabia; Russian:  Бессарабія,Бессарабия, Bessarabiya; Turquish: Besarabya) is an area southeast of Europe. Ucrania at northeast and Rumania at west.


Bessarabia was the name with which the Russian Empire identified the eastern part of the principality of Moldavia, that Russia snatched it away, in 1812, to the Ottoman Empire and organized like the Governorship of Bessarabia. What remained of Moldavia joined Wallachia in 1859, creating the Kingdom of Romania.

In 1917 the Democratic Republic of Moldova was proclaimed as part of the SFSR (Socialist Federative Republic of Russia). In early 1918 he joined the Soviet Republic of Odessa. From February 1918 the latter fought against Romanian troops in Bessarabia and from March against Austrian-German. The 13 of March of 1918 was occupied and annihilated by them. After that Sfatul Tarii voted the union with Romania. The union gained international recognition in 1920 by the Paris Pact.


There were originally four brothers and sisters  born in Bessarabia, and one cousin or nephew (Sani Mendel).

Some data seems to point out that Sani Mendel was a half brother of Itzaak Yehuda (Shloime's son) but, if Shloime was born near 1840 and Sani was born around 1850,  more probably Sani could have been Shloime’s cousin or a nephew.

Emigrate to Argentina before 1900, where his son Itzaak Yehuda (Yitzkhrokida) was already living. Others sons and daughters emigrate to USA. Had four grandsons that went to U.S.A. Descendants:
