 +
 
 +
Once you are able to locate your ancestor, the card information will help you determine where he or she came from, the date and place of birth, and the parents’ names. This information will let you prepare a family group record for the family. You can then start searching in the records from the place of birth and residence for other members of the family.

 +
Also, use the last name to search for any possible relatives that may have traveled with, after, or before your ancestor.
 +
 
 +
=== Tips to Keep in Mind  ===

These records may be used to document your immigrant ancestor's trip to Brazil, but do not overlook the possibility of finding ancestors that were merely vacationing, visiting relatives, or traveling on business.

 +
 
 +
Remember that your ancestor's name may be spelled according to the new country's native language or the language of your ancestor's home country.
 +
 
 +
Clerks may have written/spelled the name of your ancestor as they heard it, not as it is spelled in your ancestor's native language. Learn about pronunciation of your ancestor's native language.
 +
 
 +
The port your ancestor departed from may not be his/her hometown.

If you think your ancestor may have immigrated to Brazil and you cannot find him/her in this collection, then check the records of other ports in Brazil. Information on these other ports can be found here, [[Brazil Emigration and Immigration]].
