Kenya & Brazil

Post by favret » 16 Aug 2008, 12:08

How do I find immigration records for Africa & Brazil. A couple of my great uncles moved to these countries and I am having difficulty finding the surname in the phone directory for both countries...

Thank you.

I don't speak Portuguese but I do speak Spanish.

I don't have the city information, only names.

Atilio Zuccato left for Kenya around the 1930's and died there. He married a Kenyan and had 2 girls and 1 boy. All three kids lived in Italy at one point, but the 2 girls returned to Kenya. I understand the son remained in Italy and is living around Torino. I don't know the kids or wife's name.

Maria Bertolo moved to and died in Brazil. I believe her husband's surname was also Bertolo. That's the only information I have.

Thanks.
