Jessica Forman, 2570 Aster Pl So, Westbury, NY 11590
Email: JEsSa401@aol.com
Date submitted: before 1998
Surname: Bexiga
Comments: Bexiga (grandmother's side), Martins (grandfather's side, from somewhere else in Portugal). I am new to genealogy, but I do know a little of my family. I was told that between 1910-1920 (possibly 1914), my great-great uncle under the Bexiga side moved to San Francisco and then New York. The rest of my family (my grandparents, mother, and aunt, of the name Martins) moved to NY in the early 1960's. I do know that I am somewhat related to almost all of the people in Bordeira, by about 10 generations or more. If anyone has anymore information, please email me!!!! Thank you!!!

Franco Neto, 1524 Baltic Avenue, Virginia Beach, Va. 23451
Email: franconeto@yahoo.com
Date updated: Sun, 17 Jun 2007
Surnames: Neto, Lopes
Comments: My name is Franco Neto and I live in Virginia Beach, Va. I am currently researching the surname "Neto" in the Algarve region, in particular the little village of Estoi. My great grandfather is Jose Antonio Neto and his wife was Mario do Rosario Lopes. Estoi is in the concelho de Faro. I was also wondering, is there a listing of ships that left from Brazil to the US? My great grandmother, Gerstudes Rosa de Barriga left from Portugal to go to Brazil and supposedly left for America circa 1927. Hence, I may have relatives in the U.S! If anyone has any information on either of these people please e-mail me.

Christine Assumpcao Valle, 13946 Sagewood Drive, Poway Ca 92064
Email: casavalle@cox.net
Date submitted: 8 Apr 2009
Surname: Da Silva
Comments: I don't know which village my father came from. He was a fisherman, born in Florida in 1919. He spent much of his growing up in Portugal. My mother, last name Da Silva, was born in Fuzeta, Algarve
Province in 1930. Really looking for roots of both. Any help would be appreciated. Just looking for history on my father's and mother's family. My father's is probably easier to find. Both parents are deceased and they were not real talkative about the old country when they were alive. All my father's family lived in Florida.

Date submitted: 19 Apr 2009
Freguesia:  Fuseta (Fuzeta)
Surnames in Fuseta:  (1) (Da) Rocha; (2) Oliveira
Biographical Information:
•Grandfather's Name on my father’s side:  Manuel Pedro da Rocha, born in Fuseta on approximately March 7, 1882; emigrated to the USA in 1912, and died in San Diego, California, on August 10, 1945.
•Grandmother’s Name on my father’s side: Felizberta (do Carmo) Oliveira (da Rocha), born in Fuseta in March, 1882, emigrated to the USA in 1912, and died in San Diego, California, in February, 1982.
•Grandfather’s Father:  Manuel Pedro da Rocha, presumably of Fuseta
•Grandfather’s Mother: Espírito Santo Rocha, presumably of Fuseta

Comments:
 I am looking for information about my grandparents and other relatives who were born in Fuseta, Portugal.  I know from family documents that both of my grandparents (on my father’s side) were born in Fuseta and likely baptized and married in A Igreja da Nossa Senhora do Carmo.  In addition, I am looking for distant cousins alive today who most probably still reside in the Fuseta area or in the Setúbal area, where my grandparents and father (at age 6) temporarily relocated from the USA in 1924.

Eu visitarei a Fuseta no próximo Abril (2010) para tentar unir algumas partes do enigma.  Qualquer informação será apreciada cordialmente!


Special Thanks goes out to Mr. Craig D. Rocha, Ph.D. for his generous contribution of support for the Master List project.
