Biography

Erminia was born on 26 Mar 1868 on the island of Terceira which is part of the Azores Islands, Portugal. Her parents are unknown at this point. There are records of her mother's and father's names, however there is not a clear and concise tie from them to Erminia.

Erminia's home - Terceira

Erminia petitioned to become an American citizen in 1939.[1]




Erminia's Naturalization Papers







Erminia immigrated in 1888. She married Frank Vieira on 27 Aug 1888 in Boston, Massachusetts, two months after she arrived in the United States.[2]

They also had four children in Boston, Massachusetts. George Lewis, born in 1890, Adelaide, born in 1891, Henry, born in 1893, and Minna, short for Herminia, born in 1896. [3]


Notes

  • Erminia on some of her records goes by "Hermina" or "Herminia" or even "Mena" for short. I listed her name as Erminia as that was the name she herself signed on her Naturalization documents listed above. However, when searching for her, the other variances of her first name must be taken into consideration.
  • Her maiden name is "Caeser", with an "er" not an "ar". Again, there are transcription errors where it is spelled incorrectly so one must take that into account when searching for her records.
  • The single most important document found yet on Erminia is her Naturalization Petition to become a U.S. citizen. It contained information that corroborated her existence and where she existed in my family tree.
  • This is an ongoing process to collect more information about Erminia.
