Earlier, I wrote about how most Azoreans will find nobility in their tree.  My ancestor, Antonio Medeiros Cordeiro, leads off into a few different noble lines.  This includes a connection to Goncalo Vaz Botelho, O Grande, who connects to European royalty.

How am I and Antonio Cordeiro Medeiros?  Antonio descends from my de Braga ancestry in Maia, Ribeira Grande, Sao Miguel Island.   He is my 5th Great Grandfather.

I had researched this line in the marriage and baptismal microfilm.  So, I have quite a bit of information about Antonio and his family.  Also, the surname Medeiros Cordeiro was specific to Antonio.  His Father was a Medeiros Moniz and his Mother a Furtado.  None of his siblings used Cordeiro and so far I haven’t found it amongst his ancestors.  It may have been the surname of one of his Godparents.  Because of this, I was able to connect him to an entry in Rodrigo Rodrigues’ “Genealogias das ilhas de S. Miguel e Santa Maria, volume 1”.

I’ve edited this ahnentafel report so that it shows my connection to Antonio:
