I would love to know more info on my ancestry. I was born a Menezes in the state of Massachusetts in the USA. My grandparents Stephen and O'Linda Menezes were born in portugual. That's not much information but any history of the name or links to would be appreciated.

Hello, I currently live in Australia, but was born in India. My father's family orignated in the Portugese colony of Goa, on the west coast of India. I am trying to trace my family but know very little at present (my father and grand father were born in Goa). The geograhpic distance from India and very few leads make it difficult to research, but am making slow progress. Given the rare name, we may well share a common ancestor. I would apprecaite any information on the name MENEZES

There is a Jack Menezes in Santa Maria, CA.
He is the son of Kenneth Menezes now deceased.
I do not know whether he has an e-mail address.
This may not be of any assistance but I hope
it will be of some help.

I don't know much other than that my grandparents came from Portugal to Mass.
They were Antonio and Arsenia Menezes and somehow my father (George Philip Govea) changed the surname as a teenager. I have also heard my ancestors referred to as Goureira

My grandparents came from Portugal as Antonio and Arsenia Menezes. They had 6 daughters and 1 son (my father) who changed our surname to Govea. Does this help? Please contact me

Hi Glen

Do you know where in Goa? It would help if you knew the taluka/desa - Bardez, Ilhas (Tiswad) or Salsette, and the village and even better the ward (Vaddo).
