November 1997 Report from the late Argentina JGS President Paul Armory: "AMIA, Asociación Mutual Israelita Argentina (the biggest Kehila of Buenos Aires) has four cemeteries of Ashkenazi Jews and two of them (Tablada and Berazategui) that are computerized with elementary information: name and burial location, only.... number of people buried there, perhaps 112,000. The other two previous cemeteries are Liniers and Ciudadela. They have only card files in the cemetery office. Beside there are six other cemeteries of Morrocan, Sefards from Syria and Alepo, Rhodes Island, etc. Also a lot of Jews were buried in past years in Chacarita, the national cemetery and today the assimilated Jews are often interred in private cemeteries.

No Jewish cemeteries are within the city of Buenos Aires because an edict of 1896 canceled permission to open a Jewish cemetery within the city. Until 1910, Jews were buried in the "Dissident section" of the Municipal Cemetery of Chacarita and in the Municipal Cemetery of Flores.
