Click here for background data about the Portuguese Genealogist Master List.

This list was designed with the 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.
Your participation is welcomed and, indeed, encouraged.

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.

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:

    1. Your name & address, Telephone No.

    2. E-Mail address, and any links you want to your own home page.

    3. Surnames in one village (in alphabetical order)

    4. Comments you wish to add. This part is very important to include because it allows others to see more about your people and to decide whether or not to contact you about them.

If you have more than one village, submit the surnames and comments for each and every village. If you have surnames from various lugares (locations) within the same parish, send one submission and group the names into the various lugares
Your entry can be in English and/or Portuguese.

Religious "surnames" (like "de Jesus, da Conceição, do Espirito Santo, etc.") of women are not accepted since they're of no genealogical value. Refer to my series of articles on "Portuguese Naming Traditions" on this website.

Please tell everyone about the Master List and watch it grow and become more and more effective!
