My great-grandmother was Mary or Maria Almeida from Provincetown. I know very little about her, but here is what I know: I believe she was born in the Azores (Flores) and came to the U.S. as a baby or small child. She married a Mello (we think his name was either Manoel or Antonio), and my grandfather Victor Mello was born around 1897 in Provincetown. I think she had 3 children all together. She had at least one sister, who married a man from Portugal who changed his family name to Brown. As an old woman, she lived with her sister in a house very close to the tower in the center of Provincetown. I really want to find out more about her. Does any of this sound familiar to you?
