I have been researching the Lousadas/Luzaders and so on...If I can be of any help to anyone I would be glad to do so. My father's name is Jairo Lousada, and him and myself were born in Brazil. My grandmother Odila Lousada tells us many stories about the Lousadas of Brazil. After we moved to the States I began my family research and was very much surprised to find out about the spelling change of the name, as well as to find out that WE are so many. Again, I am willing to help anyone and maybe you can be helpful to me as well.
