Hello everyone,
Maybe someone can help us. We are trying to do our geneology and having a hard time. Right now what we know is that my great grandfather Mathias Baptista also known as :
Matais / matias. All we do know is that he came from Madeira in about 1886-1888 from what the census says. He came to Hawaii and the story is that: his mom told him to leave Madeira because of the fighting that was going on and they were calling on the young ones to enlist. So he left and came to hawaii from madeira and settled in the big island, Hawaii. We know nothing at all about his family. I do know that his birthdate is 05/15/1867 and he was born in madeira, he died on: 04/04/1935 in hawaii on Oahu. We have no idea about if he had brothers or sisters, but I do know that he had as of now 16 kids of his own and married, Maria Jesus.
She was 11 years younger then him and her birthdate is 02/08/1879, and she died on 07/18/1933 in Oahu, Hawaii also.
My great grandmother came to hawaii from madeira when she was a young girl with her mother and father. Her mothers name was Maria and her fathers name was Manuel.
I got the information about all there kids but I seem to hit a dead end in finding his mother and father and his brothers and sisters.

Does anyone know how I can go about obtaining a birth record for him from madeira.

If anyone knows anything about my great grandparents I would love to know. Thank you very much for your time reading this...

Aloha, Renee
