Dear Manny and all,
My Silveira relatives were all from Manadas and Velas. some of them still reside on a lane perpendicular to the main road leading to the church at Manadas. My great Grandfather was Vitorino Silveira. Avozingho came to Merced County California around the turn of the century, joined later by my Avozinhga Rosa and my Grandmother Marie(Mamie). My Avo Mamie married into the Pimentels of Santa Cruz, Gustine, & Dos Palos, Merced County.
I am a third generation Californian. I recently took my Mother back to Sao Jorge for the first time. We visited the house where my Avo was born, at the top of the little lane. i don't know if it has a name, but it should be called Silveira Lane i think. The old house is still in pretty good shape, but is now unoccupied. Anyone with a connection to this group of Silveiras,please get in touch.
