Digging Into Our Roots!
In today’s episode of Our Portuguese Table, we chat Doug da Rocha Holmes, one of the Portuguese community’s premiere genealogists. One of today’s big trends is genealogy testing and learning more about our roots. Doug first began studying genealogy in the 80’s when he wanted to learn about his mom’s family tree. He began to research more about his dad’s side and the rest is history. ;) Doug has done a lot of research in the Azores, especially on the islands of Terceira and Pico. His program has a list of about 300,000 names thus far. He’s your go-to guy! Doug has connected with others through social media to and is currently conducting additional testing, as well. We also discuss Angela and Maria’s possible connections to William the Conquer and other nobility.
