THE VOGETS IN ARGENTINA

Johan Friedrich Julius (Julio) Voget was, perhaps, the first Voget to live in Argentina. The Argentine government contracted him to take charge of one of the banks that was involved in the export of tannin.

He married the daughter of the governor of Santiago del Estero whose name was Ernestina Olaechea and Alcorta. Together they had three children, two of which, Julio and Adolfo Voget Olaechea, were photographed June 15, 1888 together with their mother.

Adolfo is on the left and Julio on the right.

Several of Ernestina's first cousins were important personalities in the government of Argentina. One of them was José Figueroa Alcorta (November 20, 1860 - December 27, 1931). Mr. Alcorta was President of Argentina from 1906 to 1910.

President Jose Figueroa Alcorta

President Figueroa Alcorta was born in Córdoba as the son of José Figueroa and Teodosia Alcorta. He was elected a National Deputy for Córdoba before becoming Governor of the province in 1895. In 1898, he returned to the Argentine Congress as a Senator. In 1904, he became Vice-President of Argentina and in 1906 he succeeded Manuel Quintana as President.

He is the only Argentinean to this day who has heald office and presided over all three powers of democratic government: the legislative as Deputy (1892) and Senator (1898); as executive as President (1906) and as a Justice of the Supreme Court (1915), then President of the same (1929)

INVITATION

Welcome to Argentina—Willkommen nach Argentinien

It is a great pleasure for us, the descendants of the Argentinean Vogets, to invite our cousins from around world to the next gethering of the great Family Voget. In 2013 we will meet in the heart of Argentina—the province and city of Córdoba, which is the second largest city in Argentina.

Argentina is known for its delicious beef (asado). Get your taste buds ready for a feast!

The reunion will likely take place at the Córdoba Hotel Los Cocos. Rates are a little more than $70 per night.

Other places to visit include Iguazu Falls, Salta and the Andes Mountains.

This last photo was taken during a recent visit to Argentina.
