  • Welcome to Portuguese genealogy and history at GoAncestry! We are striving to focus upon emigration from primarily European countries and subsequent immigration to North American regions.  Many of our users are looking back towards their ancestors, but we also wish to help those in the homelands find the paths their descendants took after they departed. We are willing to assist our homeland researchers in any way that we can.  Our forums (link below) allow for interaction, and we can provide at least the basic translation service to help in our collaborations.  If you are looking for your ancestors or descendants, please join us, we will work together if that will help.

    Bem-vindo à genealogia e história portuguesa na GoAncestry! Estamos nos esforçando para nos concentrar na emigração de países principalmente europeus e subsequente imigração para regiões norte-americanas. Muitos de nossos usuários estão olhando para trás em direção a seus antepassados, mas também desejamos ajudar aqueles na terra natal encontrar os caminhos que seus descendentes tomaram depois que eles partiram. Estamos dispostos a ajudar os pesquisadores de nossa pátria de qualquer maneira que pudermos. Nossos fóruns (link abaixo) permitem a interação, e podemos fornecer pelo menos o serviço de tradução básico para ajudar em nossas colaborações. Se você está procurando seus antepassados ou descendentes, por favor junte-se a nós, vamos trabalhar juntos se isso vai ajudar.

The table below lists the Constituent Provinces and their respective Capitals. This is a good starting place when preparing for research about ancestors. Though maps change over time and rulers as well, records of specific localities may still be found in the current State archives. Sometimes there are even challenges finding the right alignment of a record to the archive based upon the date the historical record was created. If the States are highlighted, they contain a link to subsequent focused information. If they are not highlighted, information has not been developed for that State. If there is currently no guide listed, you can consider volunteering some of your time or information. Please refer to the sitewide collaboration link above to share information or ask questions.
