About aims to promote and simplify genealogical researches in Portugal. The site is an individual initiative of the author, João Ventura. who doesn't work nor receives any support or privileged information from any of the Portuguese archives. To know when any of the unpublished books will be made available, we advise to contact the archive responsible for them, through the respective information link. Likewise, we have no information on the reason for any of the archive sites being offline, nor when they might become available again (we recommend checking in these cases).

Despite the enormous quantity of parish books and databases available online, these resources are spread over a few dozen distinct websites, making it difficult for beginning genealogists. This is aggravated by the fact that some books can be found in archives outside the respective district. Before the creation of the site, there existed another called that was the main source of inspiration and the model to follow. Unfortunately. stopped being updated, becoming a shadow of itself, and creating the motivation to develop this project.

The site is free to access, and will never restrict the access to information to subscribers. There are however, ongoing expenses related to the provision of the service (domains, server, etc.), which the site covers through the use of sponsoring and paid advertisements.

The author of this site does not work for any archive in Portugal, and as such is unable to answer any questions about the future availability of the parish books, nor help in genealogical research. We recommend also that you read our Privacy policy.

The author hopes that is as useful to you, in your genealogical research, as it is to him. Even though the author strives to keep all information up-to-date, eventually some data will become outdated. In that case. we'd appreciate that you inform the author.
