This website was created with the Portuguese genealogist in mind. 
It is for anyone and everyone whose passion has become the search for their Portuguese ancestry 
no matter where they came from in the former Portuguese territories. 
Many projects are underway which will be of great interest to anyone concerned with this field of study.
Check back from time to time to see the new developments.
