TRACING YOUR PORTUGUESE ANCESTORS - A BRIEF INTRODUCTION

CHURCH REGISTERS 
The oldest church register in existence belongs to Nabainhos, near Gouveia, and dates from 1529. In 1563 priests were mandated to keep records of all baptisms, marriages and deaths in the parish. The registers were the responsibility of the Church, until the decree of 16 May 1832. This decree was the first attempt to establish civil registration of births, marriages and deaths. However, it was overturned by another decree on 09 August 1859, which again made it the Church's responsibility. Yet another decree on 28 November 1878 made civil registration for non-Catholics compulsory. In March 1911, another decree made the state the official record keeper. The State Archives took over the old parish registers and other related books for safe-keeping. However, churches continue to keep their own records.
 
The Catholic Church has been the official church for many years. It has kept the following types of records: baptism (batismo), marriage (casamento) and death (óbito). Parish registers older than 100 years are deposited with the district archives. The public only has access to records older than 30 years and these are kept at the civil registry and at the office of the public notary of each municipality. Churches also keep records of bequests and donations, which contain information of use to genealogy. The documents relating to the Inquisition period (15th-18th centuries) are found in the National Archives at the Torre do Tombo in Lisbon.

Baptism records always contain the child's parents' names. In most cases grandparents are also noted, as are godparents as well as their residence. From the late 1800s, baptism records will sometimes have margin notes indicating the marriage or death of the baptised individual. Marriage records usually contain the parents' and godparents names. Sometimes grandparents are also listed. The bridal couple's places of birth are also given. Death records show the parents' names if the deceased was a young child. Spouse names are noted for married deceased adults. By the 1700s, most death records started showing the age at death and by the 1800s the surviving children were being listed.

Although most church registers have survived, three events caused great destruction of registers in some areas:
the Spanish invasion of Alentejo in 1580-1640
the 1755 earthquake in the Lisbon area
the French invasions of 1804-1814 devastated the provinces of Beira Baixa and Ribatejo

CIVIL REGISTRATION
Civil registration in Portugal began in March 1911. These are birth, marriage and death records for everyone within the boundaries of each registry office (registo civil). Knowing which registry office holds the records for which village/town/city, is the key to success. It is important to know how the country is broken down into regions. A region could be the Island of Madeira, within that region there are districts and within each district there are concelhos, which are the same as counties or municipalities. Within each conselho there are many freguesias (small towns and villages). There are also lugars (places) within villages, which are mostly a group of 3 or so houses in a remote spot of the village.

ARCHIVES
In Portugal, each district has an archive (Arquivos Distritais) where all records for the district are kept. Records such as church records, property records, wills and emigration records can be found there. Records older than 100 years are passed on to the Regional Archives and the National Archives.

OTHER RESOURCES
Libraries keep newspapers, which are useful in genealogical research, especially if you know where your ancestor lived. Historical books are also useful, especially those dealing with a region's early beginnings.
Cemeteries can be useful but if the grave dates prior to the 19th century, it becomes a difficult task. Most people could only afford a wooden cross and headstones were far and few between. Portuguese universities keep records of all their graduates in their archives.

Military records are kept by the Military Archives, whilst the Navy has its own Naval Archives.

District archives also keep records of those who are ordained priests or become nuns or monks.

Foreigners who have applied for Portuguese nationality are recorded in the National Archives of Torre do Tombo in Lisbon.

Wills date back to the early 15th century, for ancestors who owned land or other property. Wills are kept in the local Notarial Registry (Carterios Notarais) and are transferred every 30 years to the District Archives.
Portugal has a heraldic institution, the Conselho de Nombreza, set up in April 1945, which grants coat of arms and titles. The Instituto Português de Heraldica also undertakes genealogical research.

Passports were first issued in 1757 and are found in the District Archives. They list names, date and place of birth, date of voyage and destination.

MADEIRA - THE PARADISE ISLAND
The Pearl of the Atlantic, Madeira, was known to the Romans as the Purple Islands. The original natives of Madeira were farmers - the island having been settled by Portuguese squires. Today the largest single economic activity outside of Funchal is farming on smallholdings, most of which are less than 1000 square metres. Many of the popular festas that are celebrated around the island are linked to a product such as the cherry, the chestnut, sugar cane and the vine. When crops failed and the land was subdivided beyond subsistence level, many Madeirans started emigrating. Some 750 000 people, mostly resident in South Africa, Venezuela, the USA, and other EU countries, call themselves Madeiran.

The Madeira Islands, a volcanic archipelago in the Atlantic Ocean, 400 miles west of Morocco, constitute the Madeira Autonomous Region of Portugal. It is made up of the following islands: Porto Santo, Desertas group of islands (Deserta Grande, Bugio, Ilhéu Chão and Prego do Mar), Selvagens islands (Selvagem Grande, Selvagem Pequena and Ilhéu de Fora). The Desertas and Selvagens islands are uninhabited.

The island of Porto Santo was the first to be discovered in 1418 with Madeira being discovered the following year. The discovery was not planned. Two of Infante Dom Henriques' (Henry the Navigator) squires, João Goncalves ZARGO and Tristão Vaz TEIXEIRA, were sent to explore the seas off Guinea. Their ships ran into storms. They found shelter on an island which they named Porto Santo. They returned to Lisbon, leaving half the crew on the island. On the return voyage in 1420 they were accompanied by another squire, an Italian named Bartolomeu PERESTRELO. ZARGO and TEIXEIRA explored another nearby island which was heavily wooded. They named it Ilha da Madeira (Island of Wood). The three squires were granted governorships. The eastern portion of Madeira, with its administrative centre (concelho) in Machico, was given to Tristão Vaz TEIXEIRA. Joao Goncalves ZARGO was granted the western portion with its concelho in Funchal. Porto Santo was granted to Bartolomeu PERESTRELO.

Madeira was made a province of Portugal and in 1425 ZARCO became governor of the south side of Madeira, a position he held for 40 years. He died at the age of 80 and was buried in the old church adjoining the Santa Clara Convent, which was built in 1492. Bartolomeu PERESTRELO's daughter Filipa Moniz married a young map maker, Christopher Columbus (Cristofõm Colon), who lived in Lisbon and Madeira between 1470 and 1485.

The first Madeira settlers came from noble families of Portugal, many from Algarve and Minho. The first children born in Madeira were those of Gonçalo Aires / Ayres FERREIRA, a companion of ZARCO on his first voyage who had taken his wife to the island in 1425. The settlers had to clear land to cultivate. ZARCO set fire to portions of the island in order to clear land quickly. The fire burned for seven years and the wood ash enriched the soil.

Amongst the first Madeira families were the following who arrived with ZARCO:

Gonçalo Aires / Ayres FERREIRA
Francisco CARVALHAL
João LOURENÇO
Rui PAIS
João AFONSO
António GAGO
Lourenço GOMES
Francisco ALCOFORADO
Vasco DELGADO
Alvaro AFONSO
Aires LORDELO
Vasco ESTEVES
Manuel Afonso DE SANHA
João DO PRADO

Their blood runs through the veins of almost every Madeiran.

In 1508 D. Manuel I, King of Portugal declared Funchal a city. At that time, Funchal was the first city built by Europeans, outside of Europe. In 1580 there were 21 800 inhabitants on Madeira and a 1891 census showed 132 223 inhabitants. In 1766 the Marquis of Pombal and then Prime Minister, granted Madeira the authority to mint its own money.

DATABASE OF MADEIRANS IN SOUTH AFRICA
I have, through my interest in South African genealogy and through my Madeiran roots, collected genealogical data on Madeirans who immigrated to South Africa through the years. I am fortunate that my family has a rich oral history of Madeiran families. The island is very small, genealogically speaking - everyone knows who's who in their village and neighbouring villages. If you have Madeiran roots, especially if your family came to South Africa, I might have information in my database.

Typical information that I need in order to see check the database:

1. Full names and Surnames of the person or people you're looking for.
2. Dates and places of birth, death and marriages, if known.
3. Details of spouse, if known.
4. Details of children, if known.
5. Details of parents, if known.
6. Any other information that may assist me.

THE EARLY PORTUGUESE SETTLERS IN SOUTH AFRICA

The first known Portuguese to settle in South Africa permanently were Ignatio Leopoldo FERREIRA and Manuel João D'OLIVEIRA.

Manuel João D'OLIVEIRA, born in Lisbon, was the captain of the Portuguese ship São Josef which was shipwrecked at the Cape prior to May 1795. He married Gesina VAN BLERK in May 1795 and they had 4 children. This family became Afrikaans-speaking.

João ALBASINI, born in Lisbon on 01 May 1813, was 37 years old when he married Gertina Maria Petronella JANSE VAN RENSBURG in Potchefstroom in 1850. João's father, Antonio Augusto, was a ship's captain in Portugal, but was born in the Tyrol region of Italy. He married Maria DE PURIFICACUA of Spain. The couple had three children. When João was 17 years old he accompanied his father and brother on a voyage to Brazil and Delagoa Bay. Their ship was stranded on the east coast of Africa and João, with the help of his father, set up a trading store in Delagoa Bay. His father left for Lisbon shortly afterwards and never saw his son again. João was 20 when the exiled Zulu chief Shoshangane attacked Delagoa Bay, massacring many Euopeans and abducting João. He escaped six months later and returned to Delagoa Bay. In 1838 he met Carel TRICHARDT when the Voortrekkers of the Tregardt Trek reached Delagoa Bay, and the two formed a hunting partnership. In 1845, Chief Magashula of the Shangaan gave him land on the Sabie River. João built a settlement known as Makashula Kraal. The ruins of his brick house are not far from where the Hippo Pools are located, near Pretoriuskop. In 1845 he became the first Portuguese to trade with the Voortrekkers. After a few years he settled on the farm Rustplaats near Ohrigstad and opened a shop there in 1847. In 1849 he had to abandon the area because of fever, and moved to Lydenburg. Again he set up as a trader, with Casimiro SIMOES being his partner and Mariano Luis DE SOUZA his clerk. In 1853 he moved to the area today known as Schoemansdal in the Soutpansberg, where he opened a trading post. Later on he moved to Ohrigstad and lived on the farm Goedewensch. The farm became a well-known visiting place where important guests, such as President M. W. PRETORIUS, were entertained. Elephant hunters on their way to the hunting-grounds also called there regularly. In 1858 the Portuguese government appointed him Vice-­Consul for the Transvaal Republic. He built a store, supervised the local inhabitants and maintained trade between the Republic and Portugal . He established a postal service between Delagoa Bay and the Boer Republic. In 1859 the Transvaal Republic government appointed him as Native Superintendent in Zoutpansberg charged with the collection of a poll tax. This he did with the help of about 2000 Pedi. When Modjadji, the Rain Queen, defied him, he set off with a commando and brought back cattle and about 400 children as slaves. In 1867 Schoemansdal had few settlers left, follwing a harassment campaign by the Venda chief. A few families remained, including João, who was able to assist those who returned to the area a year later. After the restoration of the Transvaal Republic, João lived in poverty on Goedewensch because of the tribal disturbances in the 1880s and because he often had to pay for administration out of his own pocket. He continued to serve as a justice of the peace, a Bantu commissioner and a member of the district council, but his remuneration was very poor. After an illness of more than a year he died on his farm on 10 July 1888 and was buried opposite what is now the entrance to Albasini Dam. He had three sons and six daughters. Among his descendants, of whom there are still many in South Africa, there have been numerous professional people, businessmen and farmers.

One of João's daughters, Hendrika Maria, married Christian Hendrik (Doel) ZEEDERBURG in Pietersburg. The couple went to Bulawayo when he started the first regular coach service through Matabeleland. Doel was born in Pietermaritzburg in 1860 and died in London in 1907. Hendrika died in Bulawayo in 1934.

Maria, another daughter of João, married Dominee Louis BICCARD who was a mine commissioner in Pietersburg. She had many of her father's documents, including letters written by him in his capacity as Portuguese Vice-Consul. Her daughter, Tina, married Hennie ROOD. They lived at Parksig, the house next to Melrose House. Tina's son, Karel, married Steph DE KOCK. He was Secretary of Public Works and died in 1967. Steph, the niece of the poet Jan CELLIERS, died in Pretoria in 1990.

Another of João's daughters was Anna Maria Magdalena (09 Jul 1859 - 03 Apr 1920) who married Hans Jurgens DREYER.

Jacob Christovão DE COUTO was a Portuguese who also had Asian roots. He was João ALBASINI's secretary and married a DU PLOOY. The couple lived in Morgenzon, east of Goedgewensch. DE COUTO was also a brother-in-law of Antonio de Paiva RAPOSO, a trader from Delagoa Bay who made a fortune in the ivory trade.

Josephus Suasso DE LIMA was born on 27 June 1791 in Amsterdam into a Portuguese-Jewish family. He converted to Christianity and became a member of the Hervormde Kerk. He arrived at the Cape in 1818. He was a teacher, translator, author, bookseller, printer, publisher and journalist. In 1823 he taught at the Evangelical Lutheran School . Later on he became a bookseller and printer, running the first Dutch bookshop at the Cape. In 1832 DE LIMA published the Kaapsche Almanak and, between 1833 and 1854 the Kaapsche Almanak en Naamboek. The Almanak was very popular. In 1825 he published Geshiedenis van de Kaap de Goede Hoop in the form of question and answer, the first history of the Cape published in Africa. On 07 January 1826 he published the first Dutch newspaper at the Cape, De Verzamelaar, which appeared weekly. In its first year it printed the earliest letters written in Afrikaans - those of Grietje Geldenaar and Hennepikker. In 1830 DE LIMA became insolvent and C.E. BONIFACE succeeded him as editor of the paper, which was renamed De Zuid-Afrikaan. He died in Cape Town on 19 December 1858.

Artur Jose Oriolla Ferreira DE PAIVA was the Portugeuse governor in the Humpata region of Angola. He was born circa 1865 to Bartolomeu DE PAIVA and Theresa FERREIRA. In February 1882 he married Jacomina Gertruida Elizabeth, eldest daughter of Jacobus Fredrik BOTHA, who was one of the Dorsland Trekkers. Their children included Bartholomeu Jose Botha Ferreira, Jacobus (became a doctor in Angola after studying in Portugal) and Maria Theresia. Jacomina became a young widow when Artur died circa 1900 during a voyage to Portugal. He was buried at sea. Bartolomeu (born 1883 in Humpata) was married in 1904 to Christina Johanna Sofia VENTER. Some of their children fled to South Africa and South West Africa as refugees during the 1970s civil war.

Lourenço (Lourens) ANTONIO was born in Portugal and became a burger at the Cape in 1836. He married Sara Johanna SWART.

João Soares DE BRITO was born in Oporto, Portugal, circa 1818 to Antonio Soares DE BRITO and Anna Jaquema. He became a trader at Victoria West. In June 1845 he married Anna Elizabeth MOCKE. He died at the age of 33 in 1851. Their children included Antonio Soares, Aletta Catharina (married Daniel COGHILL) and João Soares Frederik.

Jose DE FIGUEIREDO was born at Terros Povoa de Varzim, Portugal, in April 1873 to Caetano Marques DE FIGUEIREDO and Delfina Candida de Aroujo. He arrived in Lourenço Marques in 1891 and worked as a cabinet maker / joiner. He moved to Makapanstad, Pretoria, and worked as a shop assistant. His new employer could not pronounce his surname, so he changed it to DE FREITAS which eventually became FRATES. Jose married Eliza WILLIAMS in Pretoria in September 1887. In 1938 he started a construction business with his sons, J. Frates & Seuns (Edms.) Bpk. He died in April 1942 in Pretoria.

NEW IMMIGRANTS
Portuguese people first arrived in South Africa in large numbers in the 1920s. Between the two World Wars, many Portuguese settled in and around Johannesburg, where they set up shops - mainly fruit and vegetable shops, and fish and chips or take-away shops. By 1938, the community was flourishing. The largest influx was in the 1950s. H.F. VERWOERD's plans for more Whites in South Africa focused on Anglo-Saxon Protestants in Europe but few of them came to South Africa. The focus then shifted to what was then considered "third rate" immigrants from Mediterranean countries. Even into the late 1970s, many of these immigrants were referred to in derogatory terms by some white South Africans, who considered them beneath them. Being mostly of the Roman Catholic faith did not make their acceptance into local communities easier. Many of the immigrants' children left school early to work in the family business. Socialization was mostly with other Portuguese. Parents were very strict with their children. A large amount of South Africa's Portuguese immigrants came from the island of Madeira, where job opportunities were limited. Men became migrant workers in the fishing industry and many of them worked in South African ports. They could not speak English and only a few had basic schooling. The men usually went ahead to get a job and earn money so that they could then send for their families. When Angola and Mozambique gained independence in the 1970s, there was a large influx of Portuguese people into South Africa. Estimations were that about 25 000 Portuguese fled Mozambique between 10 and 23 September 1974.

The majority of Portuguese are Roman Catholic and the new immigrants soon started their own churches. Holy days are celebrated at special masses followed by social gatherings with food, music and dancing. One such day is the annual blessing of the fishing fleet in Cape Town in October. They also started their own social clubs, schools and banks. In April 1989 the community got its own TV channel, Canal Portugues. There is also DStv Portuguesa. The community has its own newspaper, O Seculo, which is produced in Johannesburg and distributed all over South Africa, Mozambique, Angola and Portugal. The weekly publication has a readership of 40 000 and keeps the community informed about what is happening in Portugal and Portuguese-speaking communities locally and internationally.

Portuguese has also contributed to South Africa 's language heritage, with words such as commando and picaninn (from the word pequeninho meaning little one).

Today, the Portuguese are involved in all spheres of the South African economy. They have served in the country's Defence Force, built community centres and introduced Portuguese cuisine to South Africa. They have intermarried into other South African communities, adding to the country's mosaic. Prior to 1994, it was estimated that the Portuguese community numbered 700 000 and that it is now about 500 000.

IN THE SPOTLIGHT
Many South Africans with Portuguese roots have carved careers in the limelight or reached the top of their careers.

Maria da Conceicao das Neves Calha RAMOS, CEO of Transnet, was appointed director-general in Finance Minister Trevor MANUEL's office in 1996. She was born in February 1959 in Lisbon. Maria's first job was as a liaison clerk at Barclays in Vereniging. She attended Wits University in the 1980s, gaining a B.Com. honours in economics. She became a lecturer at Wits and Unisa. In 1992 she received a Helen Suzman bursary and obtained a MSc in economics from the University of London. From 1990 to 1994 she was an economist in the ANC's economic planning department. Maria is one of four daughters. The family immigrated to South Africa when she was five years old. Her father worked as a builder in Vereeniging.

Journalist Marianne THAMM grew up in Pretoria. Her mother was from Aljustrel, Portugal. Her father was German and grew up in Berlin. They immigrated to South Africa from England in 1963. Marianne has worked as a journalist for more than 20 years. She has ghost-written several books and is a multiple Mondi Award winner.

Manuel Lopes DA COSTA was born in June 1965 in Portugal to Manuel Lopes DA COSTA and Cecilia Giria. He attended Lycée Francais in Venezuela. The CEO of Accenture Financial Services group has an MBA and a MSc. In December 1990, he married Ana Paula PEREIRA and they have two daughters. The family lives in Johannesburg.

Vanessa CARREIRA was Miss South Africa 2001. The then 20-year-old was a final year B.A. student and worked as a public relations officer at Caesars. Vanessa lived in Boksburg with her parents João and Adélia CARREIRA, and a sister, Melony. She was crowned Miss Portugal SA in 1998, going on to finish in the top eight at that year's Miss Portugal pageant. She finished fourth at the Miss Universe 2002 pageant in Puerto Rico. She initially boycotted the Miss World pageant in Nigeria over the Amina Lawal case and when the event was moved to London, she was not able to attend as it conflicted with the Miss South Africa 2003 crowning.
