Gloria T, You need to do more research in the U.S. (I assume) before jumping over to Europe. No, the archive has no type of island index. Everything in Europe (including Portugal and the Azores) is organized on the village level. You will find multiple Marias in all 70 churches on Sao Miguel. The records for 1899 are online at tombo.pt/en
You need Maria's birthplace and most likely her parents' names. For a list of ideas of where to start, try this: https://goo.gl/dGG4Ar You really need census work to see if you can figure out her immigration year. From that, you might be able to use the Passaportes LEAVING the Azores. However, the port of Ponta Delgada has missing records. So you may still need to use the other sources that I posted in the URL above. Good luck, Cheri Cheri Mello Listowner, Azores-Gen Researching: São Miguel island: Vila Franca, Ponta Garca, Ribeira Quente, Ribeira das Tainhas, Achada On Thu, Jul 12, 2018 at 1:46 PM, Gloria Thompson <gloriathompso...@gmail.com > wrote: > I will be in Ponta Delgado on Aug 16 thru the 20th. > I have not been able to find my maternal grandmother.
