Emanuel and Antonio Da Silva, Sao Vicente, Cape Verde

Would be great to get in touch with someone who has information on these people, Emanuel Da Silva came and settled in Cardiff, in the late 19th C. All I know is that Antonio was Emanuels father and that they origionally came from Sao Vicente (St Vincent) in Cape Verde. The family have gennerally stayed around the cardiff area, which is where I am from, and Anthony Silva (Emanuel's son) is still alive there now. My second cousin has written an article on the BBC website which talks a little about them, here is the link, if it is any use:

Cheers
