My Portuguese Gen

Summary Tab
Extended Tab

I am a Professional Genealogist, bilingual in Portuguese/English, an immigrant to the United States, and a proud American Citizen. Besides my deep knowledge of the Portuguese language, I have a skill set for Paleography that runs in my genetics. My love for paleography developed through time becoming very handful when transcribing and translating Portuguese manuscripts to support and document the research I do. I am very detailed oriented and work in-house, personally, not affiliated with any business, which is more cost-effective and trustworthy. I have been working on my own genealogy for more than 25 years. My focus is the Azores archipelago, Madeira island, Portugal, and Brazil. I have worked in the past with the preservation and conservation of books and family heirlooms. I have more than 20K hours of experience in the preservation field, which combines my work for an academic library at UNC Greensboro and for Etherington Conservation Services. I am seeking my certification through the NIGS.

Service Description:
Research in countries of Portuguese language, including ecclesiastical and vital records, newspapers databases and immigration/emigration. Portuguese translation, transcripts and abstracts from records and books. I will be glad to answer any of your questions regarding research on those countries, just send me an email and I will get back to you soon.
