Re: Moniz-Bettencourt from Azores, Portugal to Providence, R.I.

My name is Joyce Schiller. I'm trying to locate relatives of my mother and aunt. My mother, Aldina (Edna)Moniz, Corria, Hoffman, Deyo. My aunt Constance (Lydia) Bettencourt, nee:Moniz, was married to Luis Bettencourt. They had 2 daughters, Dolores who died in 1955 and Anita who died in 1994. Anita spoke of an uncle, brother to Luis, and a cousin Mary who at the time were living in northern California. I am also looking for relatives living in Brooklyn,N.Y., last name Moniz. My aunt Lydia and uncle Luis were born in the Azores, Portugal. Their daughter Dolores was married to Benjamin Papparella from New Jersey. They had one son, Ferdinad (Freddie) living in New Jersey.
I'm not sure if there are any relatives still living in Rhode Island where my mother and father (Joseph Corria) were born. Myself and all my siblings were also born in Rhode Island. I would appreciate any information I can get. I would very much like to have contact with my cousins. Please contact me at
