Rosemarie,

 

I would encourage all researchers to help with this project as it may encourage 
this type of record to also be scanned on the other Islands. 

Is there a web site where we can donate using a credit card? The link below is 
only to send them an email.

Subject: [AZORES-Genealogy] Sao Jorge Dispensation Project

 

Dear All,

Sao Jorge researchers have been in contact with the Archives in Angra about 
scanning the dispensation records for the whole Island! This project will 
include dispensations from the earliest (1722) with the bulk from the 1800's. 
The Archive has counted the scans and will include a total of 2080. The total 
cost will be about $1800 American dollars plus the conversion rate to change 
into Euros. At present, the Project has collected well over half of that total. 
These scans, when finished, will be made available free to all!  If you have 
not already contributed to the Project, please feel free to write to 
saojorgeproj...@gmail.com for more info on donating. This will benefit ALL Sao 
Jorge researchers! 

If you are not aware of what Dispensation records are, they are records 
associated with marriages between relatives (cousins, niece and uncle, nephew 
and aunt etc.). In these instances, dispensation to marry had to be granted by 
the Bishop. If you are lucky enough to have a dispensation from 1722, it may 
give you another 2 or 3 generations of grandparents going back to the 1600's! 
Very valuable documents. 

Thanks to all of you who have donated already! 

 

Rosemarie
