I am trying to piece together some family history since no one in my family seems to know much about it. My grandfather was Joseph Ferreira (who married Amy Aguiar)and they lived near Bombay, India. The Christian community over there is slim, and no one is left who would remember any farther back than that (even my parents don't know for sure...and their story changes all the time).
Anyone have info on these names? Where they came from? or immigrated from? If it helps, I am also told that I had a great great aunt named Rose who apparently loved to cook (not sure of her last name...may have been Gonsalves?). I am not sure when they came to live around Bombay, but some say that it was the 1870's. Any info on these names or immigration patterns would be appreciated.
