I am stuck with this family line. Can anyone help?

I cannot find credible sources for this family member's parents. Can anyone point me in a direction? My guess is, I just don't know where to look for Portuguese records....

Could this be him?

Gender: Male
Birth Date: 10 fev 1897 (10 Feb 1897)
Baptism Date: 21 fev 1897 (21 Feb 1897)
Baptism Place: Nossa Senhora da Assunção, Funchal, Funchal, Portugal
Father: Manuel Ferreira
Mother: Maria De Jesus Ferreira
FHL Film Number: 1159120
Reference ID: bk1897, pg11v, cn22


This record was from Ancestry, but it cites a film at Family Search (1159120).

This Portuguese website seems to show Fernando and about 3 siblings.

Funchal, Portugal church records are online at Family Search. https://www.familysearch.org/search/catalog/results?count=20&placeId=132997&query=%2Bplace%3A%22Portugal%2C%20Madeira%2C%20Funchal%22&subjectsOpen=338060-50 Only some of these are viewable from home; for others you need to be at a Family History Center (the ones in the US are still closed due to the pandemic). There are several parishes.
