  • my granddaughter has a school project she has to do on her ancestors – we are of Portuguese descent. She is living in Florida and there are little or no information she can find on the Portuguese people. She has a to do a “immigrant day” and dress as her ancestors when they came to Ellis Island – can you be of any assistance in pictures or web sites she can use. My great grandparents came to America around the 1900’s.

  • A Google search will yield a great deal of information — and Wikipedia provides some good background and links to some excellent sites.

    The University of Mass – Dartmouth has a Portuguese archive with some images and links that might help as well:

    If you know whether the family was from the mainland, Azorean or from another place, that would help in the search. Also, where they settled. Many of our ancestors in southeastern Massachusetts actually arrived in Boston and not Ellis Island.

    Good luck with your search!
