This was given to me by someone in this group with some details: Manuel Neves, Portugal, 19 years old. Record from Sao Miguel Arcanjo Church, Vila Franca. TIA

12 Apr 1839. What are you trying to get out of this record? Where's page 3? You need to send the link from the CCA so we can adjust the image for our eyes.

Here is a link to the record: http://culturacores.azores.gov.pt/biblioteca_digital/SMG-VF-SAOMIGUEL-B-1837-1840/SMG-VF-SAOMIGUEL-B-1837-1840_item1/index.html?page=156

The record is 3-1/2 pages long and my vocabulary isn't enough to handle it.  In the beginning of the record it seems that Manuel Nunes is a 19-year-old member of the ?Hebrew Nation (? Nação Hebraica) born in the Kingdom of the Algarve that is being baptized.

OK, that's more clear, but it doesn't follow the standard format. It may be worth paying Joao Ventura to translate it.

Yes, sorry I didn't have the original link only the photo someone provided for me. Thank you for providing the link - much appreciated. And the information! Who is Joao Ventura? Thanks again.

Joao Ventura is a researcher for hire. I don't know his current fees. You will have to ask him how much it costs to translate a non-standard baptism for a Jewish baby that's over 3 pages long. heroi99 at yahoo.com
