Relationship between the Cosma and the Camara Families

Relationship between the Cosma and the Camara Families

This is Genealogy Research Journal #2. In this series, I’ll show how the Camara and Cosma families who spent so much time together turned out to be related.

This turned into a tricky research problem. It involves multiple name changes. Also, at the time I took up this problem those living had forgotten their connections. They had a vague sense of being cousins but had no idea how. They only know that there were a few marriages and that the families were constantly around each other.

These are the posts in this series:

The Curious Passport Record left more questions than answers.

  2. Thank you Melody. Your post is very timely and gives me more details and clues as to my family history!

  3. Pam, Thanks for your comments! If you have roots on Kauai, we probably link up somewhere. As I remember Nuno da Camara is a different line than the Jacinto da Camaras in this research journal.
