    1. [S29] Passport Application, Madeira, (Extraction from actual documents).
      João da Silva applied to emigrate to the Sandwich Islands on May 29, 1884 in Funchal, Madeira. The official file appears to be No. 484. He is recorded on the passport application with his parents, Francisco da Silva and Maria Roza, natives of the parish of Arco da Calheta and residents of Pinheiro, and his siblings Maria, Francisco, Perpetua, and Ludovina. An extraction of João's baptism record is included in the application file and attests that on 18 September 1872 in the parish of São Brás of Arco da Calheta was baptized João, legitimate son of Francisco da Silva das Fontes and Roza de Jesus, natives of this parish and residents of the village of Pinheiro. Grandson on his father's side of Antonio da Silva das Fontes and Isabel de Jesus, and on his mother's side of Antonio Fernandes and Anna de Jesus. Godparents were Joáo Gonsalves and Carolina de Jesus. Extracted from the original 17 May 1884 by Vicar Ricardo Jose de Franca Doria.
