Also more people speak Portuguese in Brazil by far than speak that language in any other country, including Portugal. Discovered by the Portuguese explorer Pedro Alvares Cabral in April 21st, 1500 was populated by immigrants in the 1600s and 1700s becaming home to many, including immigrants from Italy and Germany who primarily settled in the south of the country.

See the tutorials in FamilySearch.org pertaining to Latin American research and "Reading Portuguese Handwritten Records"

Jurisdictions, States

Brazil is a republic comprised of 26 states and a federal district (Distrito Federal), which comprises the capital city of Brazilia. Many records are kept at the state and local level and may include civil registrations, censuses, inventories and wills, land records, notarial records, and military records to name a few.

Acre Paraíba
Alagoas Paraná
Amapá Pernambuco
Amazonas Piauí
Bahia Rio de Janeiro
Ceará Rio Grande do Norte
Distrito Federal Includes Brasília Rio Grande do Sul
Espírito Santo Rondônia
Goiás Roraima
Maranhão Santa Catarina
Mato Grosso São Paulo Includes the City
Mato Grosso do Sul Sergipe
Minas Gerais Tocantins
Pará

States are also divided into counties, and the cities and towns 'municipios' are in the counties, it is possible that a city, especially the larger ones such as Recife and São Paulo , may have a number of counties in them since a state like São Paulo can have over 200 counties.
