These can be excellent sources of information that can save you valuable time. Because they are compiled from other sources of information, they must be carefully evaluated and verified for accuracy.

Published genealogies can be excellent guides to Portuguese research. Although not readily available, these books can be extremely valuable in extending family pedigrees and in a single source providing extensive genealogical information.
  
If you find your family's surname in any of the sources described in this section, determine whether the entry actually pertains to your family. All persons with the same surname are not necessarily related. Often you will have to do some original research before you can connect your ancestry to families listed in these sources. See also [[Brazil Societies]].

Genealogies (Processos de Gênere)[edit | edit source]

Published genealogies can be excellent guides to Portuguese research. Although not readily available, these books can be extremely valuable in extending family pedigrees and in a single source providing extensive genealogical information.

Until the twenty-first century, pedigrees were generally compiled by private individuals wishing to be admitted to military and religious orders, to enter the university or the legal profession, to become an Inquisition official, to be recognized as a member of the nobility, or to have the right to wear hereditary insignias.

These genealogies typically contain the names, birth dates, marriage dates, titles, and relationships of roughly four generations of a family, extending as far back as the 1400s.

While there is some secondary and false information in these genealogies, most consist of notarized copies of original church and family records.[1]

Online Genealogies[edit | edit source]

The following databases have indexes to Portuguese genealogies.

Genealogies in National and District Archives[edit | edit source]

Most of these genealogies are housed in the National Archive in Lisbon, or the District Archive where ones ancestor lived. Refer to [Portugal Archives and Libraries|Portugal Archives and Libraries] for a list of the district archives of Portugal.

Genealogies at the Family History Library[edit | edit source]

The Family History Library has a variety of genealogies for Portuguese families. To access them, perform a subject search at the FamilySearch Catalog for PORTUGAL - GENEALOGY.
