Dear Virginia Thanks for the post. I have not rung across a Sophie as of yet. I think it is interesting that your grandmother would have been born in the same place as my grandfather. I am curious how many Moniz's were related in Honokaa. Do you know where your gr-grandparent were from in Portugual. Can you ask your mother or grandmother. My grandfather did have a brother Manuel. It was his oldest brother. I hope I can help you.let me know?
