My grandfather was Manuel frank Menezes came to america in 1910 born in 1890 His father was John Frank Menezes from Calieta, Mederia Islands my Grandmother is also from the same area her name is Virginia Perry Meneses.
I know that my grandfathers mothers maiden name is Jesus Im not sure of her first name and have no dates for them but working on that. If you know any of them or find any information maybe we can share info since we are looking for the name Menezes.
My sister is going to portugal in the fall of this year and she is going to look up any info and is staying with relations there that my 2nd cousin cathy Gonsalves knows and has visited before.
thank you so much Loretta R. Menezes

Hi Loretta,
Very happy to hear from you. Where did your Grandfather settle when he came to the US in 1910. My grandmother came over on the SS Romantic 3 May 1910 she was 5 and settle in Hanford, Kings, California. She and her family were from the island of Pico. So, I'm not sure if we're connected. It is very common for female babies to be named de Jesus as a middle name, meaning of Jesus. The portuguese records don't usually state a surname for females.
Let me know if I can help in any way.
Take care and good luck in your search,
Peggy

My grandfather came to america on the SS Romantic also he arrived her in the us through ellis Island in 1910- also I will check the exact date and let you know. I have the exact address of where he was going which is 7th st. in Oakland he was going to a cousins home there. The ship manifest said friends but I know from people that I met that knew him that is was in fact his cousins that lived there. No wonder I cant find any information on my grandmother its like the females didnt hardly exist back then.
Thank you for your response

Hi,

I don't know but today I am working off of a death card for a Mary Menezes who passed 3/1/1981. From that I found her husband Frank which traced me to his brother Manuel S. Menezes. Who I found in 1930 Census with his wife Rose, daughter Rose S., his sons Manuel S. Jr and Frank.

Which may possibly make us family. I have a cousin I have just located in June who was leaving for Portugal in July to stay with family to continue the research on our Deniz side of the family.

Her name is Rose Avila, and she is linked through my grandfather Joaquin Borges Deniz.

You also listed Gonsalves which I have found linked to one of my grandfathers sisters, Caroline. If any of these names sound famililar hope we can contact.

Thanks

So happy to have a response. My Mary Menezes passed away 19May1995 in Hanford, California. Her married name was Garcia. Her husband was Ambrose Garcia. She had a brother named Frank and another named Manuel and a sister Rosa. Her parents were Manuel Silveira Menezes and Rosa de Jesus de Avila. Are you by chance related to Manuel Costa Ramos and Frances Delphina Victorino who are my great Uncle and Aunt?
Hope to hear from you soon,
Peggy

I have family with the Menezes witch is Frank Menezes and wife Mary Menezes.

What I have on Mary is born 10/4/1910 and died 03/1981 in Los Angeles, CA.

I also have the 1930 Census with Frank and Mary when living in Tulare, CA.

Let me know if this is a connection, I can also e-mail a copy of the census that I got from the internet.
