Great picture. I hope some people could recognize more individuals.
By the way, I'm argentinian. I think the name of the city could be wrong written, I think it could be Lamadrid, General Lamadrid indeed. Do you have idea in which province this place was located?

Hi L. Chavarria, great to know you are Argentinian. Perhaps this will help, from the notes from my elder cousin who lives in Juarez, Juarez province, i believe most of the locations were in the Pcia. Buenos Aires. 

My grandparents met in seminary in Azul. They had ministries in the following locations though I may need to correct spellings:

José Quiñones-194  studied at seminary in Azul, Argentina for 3-4 years, along with wife America DiCiancia (2 years.) Di_Ciancia-1

They led ministry in Suarez, La Madrid (perhaps General La Madrid), Las Flores, Mendoza, Campana, Baradero and at the family home in Morón, near Buenos Aires from the 1920s to the 1950s in Argentina.

I did a search on the name to find this link and my grandparents' mentioned in this 2017 historical article here for General La Madrid and the church there! 

¡Maravilloso! I will keep looking and update the spelling of the towns as I check with my cousins. Muchisimas gracias! 

One more comment. I have a photo Pastors' album, Remembrance book, album that was given to my Great Aunt, Tia Adela Di_Ciancia Peligrina and my grandparents for "La Madrid."  The inscription reads, "

Affectionately, in La Madrid, Church Evangelism, with Sra. Adela DiCiancia, December 15, 1935

I have, as of an hour ago, made contact with the pastor at Unión Evangélica Argentina Gral. La Madrid, Argentine on Facebook!  The church is 110 years old there and my grandfather was definitely one of the pastor there in it's history. We are in conversation because he is from the Tandil area, where my great grandparents emigrated after leaving Spain. Then they moved to Juarez in 1917.

this has been extraordinary!!  Congrats!!!heart

and I checked also, I have no idea why but La Madrid is Lamadrid. You can see here the main places you mentioned.

Benito Juarez town, General Lamadrid city, Azul city location in Buenos Aires province

Thanks to your inquiry,  L. Chavarria, I made this connection and am posting a photo from the 1930s and 2019 of the same church where my Great Aunt played the organ. Gral. LaMadrid, Argentina.  Thank you!

I cannot be happier, wikitree works!
let me know if I can help you

greetings from Argentina
