This week I’ve selection a Portuguese English dictionary as our Friday Free Ebook. In talking with different Portuguese genealogists, we sometimes lament that it would be nice to have a language dictionary from the era we are translating from. While modern dictionaries are helpful, they sometimes miss minor spelling differences and variations in definition. Being able to refer to a dictionary from the early 1800s when looking at a document from that era would be useful.
With this in mind, I have selected “A Dictionary of the English and Portuguese Languages in Two Parts: English and Portuguese, and Portuguese and English” By Anthony Vieyra. A New Edition. Lisbon : Rolland, c1860.
