    1. [S29] Passport Application, Madeira, (Extraction from actual documents).
      Maria da Silva applied to emigrate to the Sandwich Islands on May 29, 1884 in Funchal, Madeira. The official file appears to be No. 484. She is recorded on the passport application with her parents, Francisco da Silva and Maria Roza, natives of the parish of Arco da Calheta and residents of Pinheiro, and her siblings João, Francisco, Perpetua, and Ludovina. An extraction of Maria's baptism record is included in the application file and attests that on 27 January 1870 in the parish of São Brás of Arco da Calheta was baptized Maria, legitimate daughter of Francisco da Silva das Fontes and Roza de Jesus, natives of this parish and residents of the village of Pinheiro. Grandaughter on her father's side of Antonio da Silva das Fontes and Isabel de Jesus, and on her mother's side of Antonio Fernandes and Anna de Jesus. Godparents were Manoel Gonsalves Barboza and Rita de Jesus. Extracted from the original 17 May 1884 by vicar Ricardo Jose de Franca Doria.

      Baptisms, Parish of São Brás, Arco da Calheta, Calheta. Number 12, 1870. Extract translated from Portuguese: On the twenty seventh of January of the year one thousand eight hundred and seventy, in this church of São Bráz of Arco da Calheta, County of Calheta, Diocese of Funchal, I have solemnly baptised an individual of the female gender who I have christened as Maria, who was born in this village at two in the morning of the eighteenth day of the same month and year. Legitimate daughter (first of this name) of Francisco da Silva, farmer, and Rosa de Jesus, housewife, born in this village where they were married, and parishioners and residents at Pinheiro. Granddaughter on her father's side of Antonio da Silva das Fontes and Isabel de Jesus, and on her mother's side of Antonio Fernandes and Anna de Jesus. The godfather was Manoel Rodrigues Barbosa, unmarried farmer and resident of [Loribo Athog?] of the county of Calheta, and godmother was Rita de Jesus, unmarried [housewife?] and resident of Pinheiro. And for the record I executed this certificate in duplicate which, after being read and confirmed was signed by me but not by the godfather, who cannot write. Era ut Supra. The Priest, Ricardo José de Franca Doria
