In this article we attempt to establish a commented and contextualized chronology of the administrative reforms that paved the way to the extinction of four vibrant municipalities (Aboim, Penela, Prado and Regalados) and the creation of an amalgamated 58 parishes with a brand new center.< Less

More > marriages and burials being performed in every parish. This practice, prevalent in Portugal until 1910, would generate one of the most prolific archives in history: the parish records. Its contents provide a multitude of information that exceeds its genealogical or family history interest, and allows us to dive into the complex social, ritual, economical and geographical connections. The aim of this book is to provide a clear transcript, in alphabetical order, of the oldest known records in deposit at the Braga District Archive (Arquivo Distrital de Braga) from the 59 parishes of the Municipality of Vila Verde (Minho, Portugal).< Less

In this article, published in the Boletim Cultural N.º 2, in 2006, we advanced their identity and gathered as much information as possible about them, their origins and family connections, their lives and careers, but we also proposed a more attentive look at their depictions and all the hidden symbols of power, and vanity, a sign of the 19th century mentality to which we all are the present heirs.< Less

First published as a chapter in the back matter of the book, it became a separate book on its own (also published in 2009, 40 p., ISBN 9789898587060).< Less

Esta bibliografia, pese embora a sua modéstia, justifica-se a publicação por se constituir como um instrumento de pesquisa, sobretudo tendo em consideração o interesse do tema e a inexistência de outras obras de referência. A ausência de indexação temática, quer na Biblioteca Nacional, quer nas principais bibliotecas em Portugal, é uma lacuna que o artigo poderá suprir parcialmente.< Less

More > 13 years (1795-1808). These inheritance files, deposited in the National Archives of Torre do Tombo (Lisbon), provide an extraordinary amount of accurate genealogical information and contain transcripts of parish records that have been lost in the meantime. Furthermore, they provide the correct relationship of individuals that share the same names and could otherwise be mistaken with each other. By cross-referencing these inheritance documents with other documents still available today (i.e. other parish records, the Holy Office records, the Honorific Orders records, Military records and the de genere inquiries), we were able to reconstitute this important family group: its members, their occupations and genealogical information such as births, marriages and deaths.< Less

More > was republished in Portuguese by the Observador with the title David Lynch’s “Mulholland Drive” is considered to be the best movie of the century. This attempt to determine 21st Century’s Greatest Films in the year 16 is just a crude example of how established and self-appointed opinion makers try to constraint future generations’ views and aesthetics by imposing, or trying to impose, a control over future choices with a permanent reference of comparison. In other words, by declaring this early that David Lynch’s “Mulholland Drive” is the best movie of the century they are in fact keeping it artificially alive and forcing both future critics and future filmmakers to quote it, or see it, as a reference.< Less
