Richard, this is something that the Sao Jorge Facebook page has undertaken.
It would be a great thing for the other Islands to try also but who
knows! *Just
email to the email addy given* and they will give you the info regarding
how to donate. I can hardly wait as the chances of finding a Dispensation
are greatly increased by the number of 'cousins' you have marrying each
other! This is especially helpful if you are at the end of the Churhc
Records of Baptism/Marriage/Deaths and have no other resource to extend
your lines.
