looking for german ancestors in Brazil
Posted by: Corilo (ID *****8914) Date: March 07, 2012 at 10:05:39

I'm looking for ancestors who immigrated from Germany (East Friesland) to Brazil. The only information we have are two stamps, but unfortunately not the card itself. One stamp is from Fortalezza (could be from around 1920's or later). The surnames could be "Higgen" or "Ortgies" or similiar.
If anyone knows something about those names in Brazil it would be much appreciated to let me know.
Thanks in advance,
