Hi Gonçalo,

Emigration records for São Miguel island don't start until 1875. Older
records are lost. :(

If Brasilian sources are not revealing a freguesia on S. Miguel for you,
then your only choices are:

1) Do as you have already done - make a post. If no one has them, repost a
couple of times a year, hoping someone will recognize them.
2) DNA test. S. Miguel is the largest island and it doesn't have a lot of
clusters yet. But sometimes I am able to tell it's from the western part of
the island, or the Vila Franca area, for example. You would want to test
with Family Tree DNA and you want the Family Finder test.
