Portuguese Language


Welcome to BrazilGenWeb!

We have just started to translate our pages into English. Sorry for just a couple of pages are done so far, thus sometimes you may be redirected to a Portuguese language one. On the other hand, probably you will be able to guess what we are talking about, as mostly we have names dates and places, and, as experienced genealogist you are, we hope you will try manage the information you find here, while the translation process is not ended. For aditional help, try the Online Translator of AltaVista, it is pretty good. Sorry for any inconvenience you may have meanwhile.
