Benefidia Silva ROSA [????-????]
I am trying to find an ancestor. Her name was Benefidia Silva Rosa. We know she had a child Bartolomeu, who was baptized in the Cathedral in 1851. The father was listed as Antonio d'Eça vaz Bernades. This much is documented in a study of the Macanese by Dr. Jorge Forjaz a few years ago.
I wrote to the H.K. Government Dept. of Birth/Deaths and they just informed me that there are no traceable records prior to 1873. I also emailed the Cathedal but have not received a response of any value. Can anyone help please? Our family is willing to pay a researcher or make a donation. We are very anxious to get any information.
