Dear Naidia,

A friend of mine - whose mother was born in Brazil - is interested in
finding out more about her maternal ancestors.

AZEVEDO, FARIA, MARTINS

I would first suggest a look up in the following excellent books on Brazil
Jewry in the 19th cent. and beginning of the 20th

Egon and Frieda Wolf: Dicionario Biographico - 7 vols
[Each Volume on a different period or a different topic]

Egon and Frieda Wolf:Sepulturas Israelitas - 3 vols

[Jewish Tombstones inscriptions in all the non-Jewish cemeteries all over
Brazil]

Both published in Sao Paolo, Brazil.

Shalom,
