Bellems of Santa Maria, Azores 1906
I'm looking for information regarding my g-g-grandfather Fernando Bellema and his wife Maria. They came from the island of Santa Maria in the Azores. Fernando first came to the U.S. via Flores (Azores) in 1906 to see his cousin Antonio de Freitas in California, then went back 5 years later when he met and married Maria (orphaned as an infant) any information regarding their Azorean family or means to research said family would be appreciated. Thank you.
