When visiting my sister who lives in Loule, Portugal, I purchased a piece of Sao Jorge 7 month old cheese. It is one of the best cheeses that I have ever tasted, with a very good and long lasting after-taste. I have purchased some more to take back to England.
wow ! Great site!

While looking over the "old" guest book I noticed a posting from a person living in Boise, ID with a relative by the name of Albano do Matos of Sao Jorge. Does anyone know who this person is or how I may contact them? I believe this person and I are related. Thank you!

My father, Luis Teixeira Sousa, is from Santo Amaro. I was there with my wife on our honeymoon earlier this year. I got to see most of Sao Jorge, including Santo Amaro and the house in which my father was born and raised. His father was Manuel Teixeira Sousa after whom I am named. I found Sao Jorge to be a breathtakingly beautiful island and I cannot wait to go back.
😉 Thank you for this great site. I am looking for any information regarding family members of my maternal grandmother Ernestina C. deBorba from Norte Pequeno. I was in Sao Jorge in 2001 with my daughter and couldn't believe how beautiful it was. As a child I heard about the old country and pictured a barren island. What a wonderful surprise. The people were wonderful.
Hi,my family tree was planted on sao jorge thanks for the great pictures.

Hello. Grandfather John Pereira Pires (went by family nickname of Janela i.e. my Geniella)from Beira. Family still there, I understand. Would love to see photographs of Beira, and learn more about its history. Thanks, Mike
I was born in Beira, Sao Jorge and I have not been back there for 33 years. I loved your website and seeing all the pictures, I do hope to make it back some day. Thanks for the mini trip. Grace
I was born in Santo Amaro.. If any of my old friends are looking feel free to say hello.. Sorry for the double entry but I misspelled Santo Amaro.. I also wanted to thank the people involved for the information and pictures
Born in Santo Amoro Sao Jorge
Beautiful website, beautiful island. A friend and I spent a week on Sao Jorge this February and thoroughly enjoyed it. We took some amazing walks.
Obrigado por todas as fotos da minha terra. Sou natural dos Terreiros, freguesia de Manadas, actualmente vivo em Mississauga, perto de Toronto Canada. Gostei muito de as ver e e bom que tenha-mos alguem que mostre ao mundo as coisas lindas do nosso patrimonio portugues. Mais uma vez, obrigado e continuem o bom trabalho
I was born in San Amaro, S. Jorge. Came to California in 1959 at the age of 12. Went to School in Santa Clara, California and 2 years of College in Stockton, CA. Served 4 years in the U.S. Marines with one in the Vietnam war. Married Gorete Dias from Calheta, S. Jorge. Live in Tracy, CA and am retired from the Marines and the Postal Service. I just love all of your photos. Makes me home-sick. Have a wonderful Christmas, Manuel Dias
I would like to hear from anyone from Topo. My grandfather Manuel de Silveira was born there in the mid 1800's. I think I am related to Guilherma da Silveira who helped establish the island in the 1400's
