Portuguese location help (Baptismal Record)

+1 vote

Hi guys im curious if there's anyone here thats good with portuguese records? I can get by with finding names and certain dates. But im trying to find out more infomation on my grandmothers line. My portuguese side of the tree is so small. I have her baptismal record here (top left is maria/stella, date is on earlier page)

Theres a place in there that looks like "Cruz" attached to her fathers parents. Anyone have any idea what it says? Somewhere in portugual or brazil im assuming. Any info would be helpful!

Looks to me like Lomba da Cruz, which is a component of the parish of Lomba da Fazenda on the island of São Miguel in the Azores (see English Wikipedia and much more extensive Portuguese Wikipedia). This would seem to make sense, as she was baptised in Santo António on the same island.

Edited to correct geography mistake.

You're amazing that seems to be it! I'll have to do some digging now in those unsearchable records. At least now I have a place to focus on. Portuguese genealogy is rough :D

Hmm ok Lomba da Fazenda seems to only have records starting at 1889 which is only 10 years before she was born. So marriage records for her parents might be there but their baptismal records wont.

"Parish with its own parish register since 1889. Parish created on February 13, 1925, by detachment from Nordeste"

Im going guess their records may be at Nordeste then.
