Marriage Record - Jose Ferreira and Anna Thome

Anna Thome and Jose Ferreira
My brother has been helping me with the Brazilian side of my family. He has some time where he can do the digging in the records online. So, I was taking a look at my Grandmother Deolinda's family to see what records I need him to find for me. In the process, I found her parents' marriage record online on Family Search. I had my dad help me with the translation and transcription.

Interesting:

  • According to my dad, Jose should be listed as 36 years old and not 26. He remembers always being told that he was 12 years older than Anna. Here's his explaination: It could be a misunderstanding due to their accent or they lied because they were also ashamed of the "scandalous difference".  It makes sense because he had children from the first marriage and at 26, it's possible, but not normal for someone to father a few children and lose his wife and take some time for mourning before re-marrying.
  • Also, the name I have for Jose's mother is Barbara Rita not Barbara Pinto. Maybe that's why I've had such trouble moving back.
  • This record lists where they were living -  Rua de Nossa Senhora de Copacabana number 30 (literally  Our Lady of Copacabana Street). So, a quick search on GoogleMaps gave me a visual of the location...just two blocks from the beach.
