[Research Journal #6, Entry #1]
My Gr Gr Great Grandmother was Maria da Conceicao (de Mello) de Braga left for Hawaii in 1882. She didn’t leave many clues as to who her parents were. I knew she was from the town of Maia, Ribeira Grande, Sao Miguel Island, and that she married Jozimas de Braga. Beyond that, her history was a blank. I wanted to figure out who her parents were so that I could go further back in my research. I had explored all California and Hawaii resources. I was ready to move on to the records of Sao Miguel Island.

In this journal, you’ll see that I found out the names of her parents easily. However, locating her father was a big challenge.
