My family Baltar is from the northeast of Brazil. Fistly the name was written with "h", but my great grandfather began using just Baltar without the "h". The information I have is that he, Antonio Ferreira Baltar, was B: 09 Aug 1848 / D: 23 Feb 1917, also I have his father name, but just the name Antonio Ferreira Balthar. I would like to contact others Balthar´s to help me tracing my family history. Many immigrants from the north of Europe (Netherlands, Germain, France, etc) came to the northeast of Brazil in the colony era, not just from Spain and Portugal.
Hoping to hear from you, regards,
