I am trying to find all relatives of mine. The bloodline, as far as I know, stops with my brother and myself. I'd like to know if there are more Ferreira's out there that are related to me in some way, so I know that the family blood will continue. I am currently living in PA, but was born in AZ. My father was Leo J. Ferreira, died Jan. 1981, born 1946 I think. That is all that I know about that side of my family, my father, that's it. I do know that he was a Leut. or 2nd Leut. in the US army. He worked for the Arizona State Corrections Facility. He had blonde hair, blue eyes, about 70"-72" in height and about 170 pounds. This is pretty much all that I know about the Ferreira family. I also found the New World Book Of Ferreira's, which lists all of the Ferreira's on the planet. It's amazing how many times the spelling of the name has changed and how many people use the Surname. I have all kinds of documented history about the Ferreira Surname and even a 'Coat of Arms' shield, which is French and stands for loyalty, generosity, valor, perseverance and splendor. Also the symbol of BENDLET. The 'Coat of Arms' represents husband and wife. If you can contribute any information, please contact me as soon as possible.
