DEAR SIR,
MOST SILVEIRAS WERE FROM THE ISLAND OF SAO JORGE, AS WAS MY GREAT GRANDFATHER ARMANDO SILVEIRA. HE LEFT THE AZORES ABOUT THE SAME TIME AS YOUR ANCESTOR. HE WAS FROM THE VILLAGE OF MANADAS. I VISITED THERE 2 YEARS AGO. YOU CAN BASICALLY CLOSE YOUR EYES, THROW A ROCK & HIT A SILVEIRA EVERY TIME THERE. THE BIRTH & BAPTISISM RECORDS ARE NOT KEPT ON THE ISLAND OF SAO JORGE. YOU HAVE TO GO TO A RECORDS OFFICE IN TERCEIRA TO LOOK THOSE UP. HERE ON THE INTERNET YOU CAN FIND THE PASSENGER LISTS FROM THE STEAMSHIPS WHICH WENT FROM THE AZORES TO THE US BACK THEN. MY GREATGRANDFATHER CAME TO CALIFORNIA & WORKED ALL OVER THE NORTHERN PART OF THE STATE, BUT EVENTUALLY SETTLED IN GUSTINE & DOS PALOS. GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR SEARCH. JOEL
