Trying to trace my husbands family tree. His grandmother DORIS WINIFRED MANUEL born 5 SEPTEMBER 1908 . Not sure where she was born but she grew up in south Africa and married a man with the surname broadway. I am interested in finding out where the manuel name comes from and if there was a migration to south Africa, can't seem to get that much info on some websites. Any info appreciated. Thanks


  • You can trace the "Manuel" family tree through the civil registries in Portugal. But you would have to do it in person as none of it is online. These registries can go back a couple of centuries and you would have to go though reams and reams of handwritten documents. But, maybe, the Mormon church has something more readily available and easy to check. I believe they have recompiled these registries for their own use.
