I have had a major find today. Ancestry.com’s hints found the marriage record for John Paul Silva and Rosa Soares. I am certain that this is their marriage record because the facts corroborate with information that I have researched. For example the record states this is John’s second marriage. The parents of the couple also mostly match. And by mostly I am alluding to the major find. Rosa Soares’ parents have proven to be a brick wall in my research efforts. Especially that I had the name of her mother as Clara Delae (from Rosa’s death certificate). This has always not been strange because Delae is not a Portuguese name. Well in this marriage record Clara’s surname is Nóbrega.
