Flores


Flores is regarded by some to be the prettiest of the islands and it was named for the beautiful flowers that are everywhere on the island.

Listed here by Freguesia, which is the village or town, are the names of the Churches and the years for which the LDS Church has microfilmed their records. Those films are available at your local Family History Center or the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah 

Also, Azorean Church records are digitized and available online.

  • The easiest way to navigate to where the records are on the Centro De Conhecimento Dos Azores (CCA) site, is via the portal site, Tombo. The link for Tombo is listed below with the appropriate Freguesia.
    • Go to Tombo, https://tombo.pt
    • In the sidebar on the left, choose Azores.
    • Next, choose the island you want in the sidebar. Passports are on this page, as well, for the three ports of the Azores.
    • The next page lists the Concelhos (councils) for the island you picked. Choose the one you want.
    • Next, choose the Freguesia (village) from the sidebar.
    • Click on the Freguesias you are interested in. There are Baptismos (baptisms), Casementos (marriages) and Obitos (death records)
    • You will see the dates for each record type. When you find what you want, click the link (an example would be to click on the word Obitos for the date you want). 
    • The next screen brings up the record viewer with each record link listed on the left and controls for the viewer across the top.
