I am at a dead end... Jaime Bettencourt, wife Filomena Bettencourt (Machado)
My family immigrated from the Portuguese Azores islands back in 1968.I tried to trace their roots, but it is so difficult because a lot of people have the same last names on those tiny islands and my search just seems to go nowhere.I've even tried Ancestry.com to little avail.So here it goes...
My grandmother is Filomena (Machado) Bettencourt
My g-grandmother was Amelia Lourdes Bettencourt
My g-grandfather was Jose Machado
My gg-grandmothers were Maria Adelaide Da Silva & Maria Jacinta Maciel
My gg-grandfathers were Manuel De Sousa Machado & Antonio Raulino Machado
My grandfather (Filomena's husband) was Jaime Bettencourt
My g-grandmother was Angelina De Conceicao Bettencourt
My g-grandfather was Jose Augusto Bettencourt
Not much to go on, especially on my grandfather's side, but hopefully someone out there has something to add.
