These records are in Portuguese. For help reading the records, see the following wiki articles:

 +

*[[Brazil Language and Languages]]
 +
 
 +
=== Using the Information  ===
 +
 
 +
You can use passenger lists to learn an immigrant’s place of origin, confirm their date of arrival, learn foreign names and their Portuguese translations, and find records in his or her country of origin such as emigrations, port records, or ship’s manifests.
 +
 
 +
If just the country is given, use the last name to search for your ancestor and his/her family in his/her home country; this is called a surname search and helps to pinpoint what cities/provinces/states were the hometowns of families.
 +
 
 +
Also, use the last name to search for any possible relatives that may have traveled after or before your ancestor.
 +
 
 +
=== Tips to Keep in Mind  ===
 +
 
 +
Remember that there may be more than one person in the records with the same name as your ancestor and that your ancestor may have used nicknames or different names at different times.
 +
 
 +
The information was supplied by the immigrant and his identification documents. Incorrect information was occasionally given, or mistakes may have been made when the immigration officer guessed at the spelling of foreign names.
 +
 
 +
These type-written records may have been transcribed from hand-written lists. So errors may be found in the spellings of names.
 +
 
 +
When looking for a person who had a common name, look at all the entries for the name before deciding which is correct.
 +
 
 +
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.
 +
 
 +
=== Unable to Find your Ancestor?  ===
 +
 
 +
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]].

For Help Reading These Records

These records are in Portuguese. For help reading the records, see the following wiki articles:

Using the Information

You can use passenger lists to learn an immigrant’s place of origin, confirm their date of arrival, learn foreign names and their Portuguese translations, and find records in his or her country of origin such as emigrations, port records, or ship’s manifests.

If just the country is given, use the last name to search for your ancestor and his/her family in his/her home country; this is called a surname search and helps to pinpoint what cities/provinces/states were the hometowns of families.

Also, use the last name to search for any possible relatives that may have traveled after or before your ancestor.

Tips to Keep in Mind

Remember that there may be more than one person in the records with the same name as your ancestor and that your ancestor may have used nicknames or different names at different times.

The information was supplied by the immigrant and his identification documents. Incorrect information was occasionally given, or mistakes may have been made when the immigration officer guessed at the spelling of foreign names.

These type-written records may have been transcribed from hand-written lists. So errors may be found in the spellings of names.

When looking for a person who had a common name, look at all the entries for the name before deciding which is correct.

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.

Unable to Find your Ancestor?

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.
