This is the Bravo family, arrived in mid-1870 to Peru,
along with their families appear Martell, (Martel)
Zelis (Celis) and Retises, all of regions like
Lithuania, Poland, and Germany .... This photo was taken in the town of Tingo Maria, a district of the city of Huanuco, located 470 kilometers from the city of Lima in Peru ...

My family has had in his possession Sefer Torah since he arrived in Peru, more than 100 years ago, and those who care are the scrolls of the Torah from generation to generation in my family.

If anyone knows if the Bravo family or any of the names mentioned have been Sofer (scribe) or have been linked to religious families that have some link with families of rabbis, please do not hesitate to contact.
