The above was added May 4th, 2012, of a 1922 photo of Caden Bili, Yacov Levy and child: Alberto Levy. The following is the story sent with the photo:
“I am trying to trace my Rhodesli cousins and/or their descendants: Alberto Levi, married to Stella Bega and his sister Selma Levi. Their parents were Giacobbe Levi and Caden Bili (Billis). Alberto was born in 1913, married 11 Oct 1935 to Stella Bega. They left Rhodes immediately after the wedding and arrived in Buenos Ayres on 4th Nov 1935. Alberto’s sister Selma Levi was born in 1925 and left at the age of 14 also for Buenos Ayres in 1939. Their parents stayed in Rhodes with their grandmother Mazaltov Berescit, married Bili. Mazaltov was my great-grandmother. She died in 1940 aged 8O. Caden & Giacobbe Levi-Bili were my great-aunt and great-uncle. They were amongst the victims of the Nazi horror and died in Ausschwitz in 1944. I have the Bili family tree going back until 1750 in Izmir, Turkey. I would be very grateful for any clue that can help me find them, or in case any of my cousins would read this message, please contact me.
