About Our Family Research

Since I was first generation borne this country. I am having difficulty to find my ancestors. It seems that in the old country; Like Portugal and it's Azores Islands, it is the perogitive of the Husband to take the last name of the spouse or keep his own last name. In my grand parents and Great Aunts and Uncles the husbands took the last name of their new spouse. My grandfather's name was Antonio Gonzalves and took the last name of his wife "Nunes", his brother took the name of his wife which is "Cardoza" and it went on and on. I don't know who to find out this information, but if anyone out there can help me out please let me know at This program does not allow that information in the trees or explanations
