Hi Steve Rigg
My name is Minette Fernandez. I am from Kauai, live in Kaneohe, Oahu and am intrigued by your conversations about what could be my family as well. My grandparents were George Fernandez and Rose Marie Jacinto from Maui. I am interested in finding out where exactly my family came from as my brother, George is planning a trip to Portugal and wants to visit the homeland of our family. Both my grandparents died when I was young so getting real info is difficult. My grandmother Rose Marie had brothers Frank, Manuel, Seraphine and Jacinth. There may be more. My uncle Robert (Franks son) still lives on Maui. He is my dads first cousin. What I want to know is did they originate from Madeira or Sao Miguel?
Please contact me.
