Surnames: Pereira
Location: Mainland Portugal or East Timor
Comments: I am researching my Pereira lineage to find my relatives and cousins from my great great grandmother. My Oma did not leave me extensive information although i know my great great grandmothers name is Maria Meintje Pereira and she married Hendrick Bosch in Indonesia likely around 1760-1780 (she never provided a date) and they had Johanna Christina Pereira Bosch in Indonesia. I am not sure where Maria Menitje Pereira came from although likely East Timor (spice islands) with the first settlers from Portugal. I know Pereira means Pear Tree and i will be obtaining the book the Cross and the Pear Tree. I intend on doing extensive research until my relatives are found. I will be going to Portugal as the Pereira's (one site stated) started in galicia, spain, if that is correct and i know there are still many in Portugal. I would love to know more about the Pereira lineage as i am sure there are ties and information out there. Please contact me via email with whatever you know! Muchos gracius!


This is from a photograph of the church called Nossa Senhora da Conceição in the city of Angra do Heroísmo, island of Terceira, Açores (Azores), Portugal.
It is an example of the typical look of Catholic churches in Portugal. 
You supply the picture and place an order for one where your ancestors were baptized, no matter what country.

Comments: I would be highly interested in Maubara Timor. I was baptised In St. Anthony and my mother in Immaculate Conception in Dili, Dalide-Our lineage goes as far back as to the King - Gasper Joseph Da Silva Nunes. Any help to this family tree would be helpful. I believe there are only five of us in the United States. We used to know a Father Rice. Anyways. It would be most appreciated. Carla

For comments, questions, or to submit your own surnames and locations, send an email to: Make the subject "Masterlist" and include the same kind of information you see in the above entries: Your name & address, telephone no., email address, surnames in one village (in alphabetical order), comments you wish to add. If you have more than one place, submit the same things for each and every place. If you have surnames from various lugares within the same parish, send one submission and group the names into the various lugares.

Religious "surnames" (like "de Jesus, da Conceição, do Espirito Santo, etc.") of women are usually not accepted since they're of no genealogical value, except in cases where these names are used by males. Refer to my series of articles on "Portuguese Naming Traditions" on this website.
