I am looking for any information on my relatives from Sao Miguel, Azores.My g grandparents
came to Fall River, MA with their 1st born son,then later sent for my gg
grandmother(maternal).My g grandfather's brother came to the US (MA) also,but not sure of
the date.Here is the info I have:

Maximina DeMederios Correia 1852/1947
Born-Vila Franca De Campo, Sao Miguel
Emmigrated to F.R.,Ma 6/7/1920
she had a daughter:

Maria Maximina DeJesus "Franco" Frank
Born- De Aguade Retortade,Sao Miguel
she emmigrated to F.R.MA 4/7/1917
along with her husband and 1st born son:

Manuel "Franco" Frank Sr 1/26/1886-6/24/1952
NOR-ASH(sp) ? Sao Miguel

Manuel (Martin) "Franco" Frank Jr 1903-1983

Manuel Sr's parents were:
Ventura and Rosalina (Branco) Franco

Manuel and Maria had 12 children :
Manuel"martin"Jr,Antone,Joseph,Arthur,Victor,John,James,Diana,Claire,Alma,Rose and Mary.

Manuel Sr's brother Ventura came to the US also and kept the Franco name.After years,
Manuel Sr,Maria and all their children changed their name to Frank.Would like to find out if
Manuel and Ventura had other siblings in Sao Miguel,Where the Francos originated from on Sao
Miguel,any relatives of Ventura Franco, Where is NOR-ASH(or something that may sound like
that) in Sao Miguel, and any info on any of these people.Thank You
