My name is Joao Silva Brandao Junior. My father's family came from a half from Portugal and a half slavesoriginally. My Mother's one a half from Portuguese Jews and half Morroccon Jews. I would like to know if there is any Barbosa/Barcessar/BrandaoJewish family around. Those people are probably from my family. Both families immigrated to Brazil in 1795.My mother was adopted for a Lebanese Jewish family and I really would like to find my roots. Although not religious, I am Jew and I firmly believe if I find my roots I will be closer to my mother, who passed away in 2000. Thank you for your help. You can find my genealogy looking for Joao Brandao at google. There I do have everyone I could find.
