 Genealogy Path   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-17)
For purposes of genealogical research, it is useful to know that each district is divided into concelho s, and then the parishes (freguesias) are grouped within the concelho.
The district and concelho are the government boundaries, and the parish obviously refers to the church organization, within that concelho’s boundaries.
With this approach it is also wise to look for any last names that are the same as your relative, because many times immediate or extended family members live in the same parish, or in close proximity, and can be a clue to finding the main family member.
