Hello, I'm not sure what the word is where it says "recebidos na Egreja de...."?  Can someone say what the following word is?  
Thanks,
Maria

"received (married) in the church of Provnestas?? in the United States of America..." The parents were married in America. I'm guessing he tried to translate Providence into Portuguese and is misspelling it. *SOME* records from Rhode Island are online at FamilySearch.
Good luck,

Thank you I thought of Provincetown as well.  Not sure how likely though since that's a touristy place at the tip of cape cod where the mayflower is at.

I didn't think of Provincetown. That's in Massachusetts. Many Portuguese settled in Provincetown back in the day. It wasn't all about tourism in the mid-1800s. I think there was a book written about the Portuguese in Provincetown.

You can check on FamilySearch for marriage records in MA and Provincetown.
Good luck,

My grandmother was born in Boston so that's why I'm primarily thinking of Massachusetts.  These were her parents.  Her siblings show up on the Portuguese records but she does not.  They put a question mark as to where her siblings were born.  I was told they had gone back to the Azores to visit but according to this record they were there for a while.

I'm sorry they put a question mark at the name.  It seems they were from the Azores.
