  • dear Joan,
    I did a search at http://www.arquivo-madeira.org for your grandfather.
    I did find one passport entry for Manuel Gonçalves Jardim, from Estreita da Calheta going to Cabo-RSA in 1902. It seems from the entry that he was traveling alone (probably unmarried at the time).
    Since Calheta is not in the baptismal database, I cannot find his baptismal date.
    Also, unless he was married in Madeira, unlikely since he traveled to RSA alone, I would not be able to get his marriage info as well.
    You could get more info from Calheta, now that you know he is from there.
