Hi, I am Doroteia Ferra. I’m here now for four years and I have relatives here in the USA and am needing to find them.

I would like to introduce myself with the contribution. Here is the list, the biggest one of that I know for the list of Ports that all immigration goes through for the whole U.S.

It says only from the 1820 until 1957, but most of them did not change even until now.
Here it is: http://www.genesearch.com/ports.html

For anyone with more the good places to find the relatives, please put them here on this thread.

This thread is for all the sharing and the helping.

Great day!

Hi, I am Davi.

Good to meet you. my family has been here in the U.S. for about 50 years now and I was born here so maybe I can help with finding people in the U.S. and maybe you have some connections in Portugal?

This would be great.

Here is a tip that has helped me. When you are searching a database that you think should give you a good result but it didn’t switch the 1st and last names of your relative around. Put the last name 1st and the 1st name last.
The reason is that many databases store them this way.

One good resource is this: http://www.libertyellisfoundation.org
Thay have great old records that can really help.

Let’s everybody work together and we will all do so much more.
