Hi Trisha, I am too working on this family tree. I'm having a really hard time tracking down Emelia's siblings. Her brother Joaquin "Jack" Simas is my great-grandfather. Emelia's daughter Emily Gomes is my cousin and I was very fond of her. Im trying to find more info on this side of the family. Who was your grandpa? I guess we are distant cousins lol. I hope to hear back from you. BTW, Emelia's maiden name was Simas. :)
