I've never studied Portuguese but have Spanish and French and with that I can make out some of the records. But it would be easier if I knew what their standard format was for marriages and baptisms. Sometimes there are so many abbreviations and loops in the letters I can tell who is who and what is what. Also perhaps a handy list of common abbreviations for names and acts. 

So like date/month/year, place?, church?, priest?, name of baptized? etc. Also on baptisms whose name is in the margin, the baptized or the father? Thanks.

All that information is on the Azores Genweb. I am unable to give you the exact link to the template pages. Maybe someone else can, or I will be at my computer in a couple of hours.

For whatever reason, I can't get the Azores GenWeb to load. I don't know if it's on my end or not. I will try again later tonight (I'm in Pacific time) to get it to you.

The server where the Azores GenWeb page is stored is down. So we have to wait for it to come back up. Grrr.

OK, the Azores Genweb server is back up.

The list of keywords is here. You are in the 2nd time period. That's what you want to focus on.

At the end is examples from all 3 times periods. You want the 2nd time period.
