Re: Help me, Please, to help my brother

Thanks, Peg and all -
I think the Library is the place I should go to. Funny, years before the internet, we all used to go to the libraries and sift through musty old books and copies of newspapers.
I have one more favor to ask of you all, Peg, Elizabeth, and SuanJ-
I have been thinking very hard on all that I can remember from sniplets of conversations when I was a very young girl and I think that Clara's father's given name was Emmanuel. I am almost certain that my mother had said that my brother, John, had been initially named for his grandfather.
If any one can look up Emmanuel Fernandes (or Fernandez) in the 1930 census for the Bronx or Westchester County, I would be very grateful.
Many thanks again to you-
Madeleine (Maddalena)

Hi Madeleine,

I don't have ancestry.com (paid subscription) but most libraries do--and most likely someone on the board will look it up for you.

In the Westchester Archive online marriage index I found both Fernandes and Fernandez marriages (no Clara, but the online list is only partial--I would definitely contact Westchester Archives directly, if I were you.). Maybe one will match up with a brother or sister of Clara.

Good luck, Peg

My grandfather was from Mt. Vernon and his obit was in the Daily Argus. I don't know if it was published when your Clara died, but that may be one publication you may want to look in for obits.
