Hi, by happenstance, I am Caron's sister. All the Martins family from the cape verdean islands spring from he island of Fogo, with neighbors Brava. Brava is THE SMALLEST island, but because of it proximity to Fogo, many people in Fogo are related to families in Brava. My grandfather was Alvaro Augusto Martins, born in January of 1898 Sao Felipe Fogo, and his mother was Mary Martins. He was a twin, his twin brother was Frank Martins, and he had a sister who died in the New Bedford area in 1978. My grandfather Alvaro died in 1960 and I believe he was 62 years of age. His widow Lavonne Way Gregory died in 1995. My father Richard and his sister Shirley Martins Compton are the surving siblings out of 5 children. please contact me if you have questions I am planning a trip to Cape Verde this year wth the intent of adopting a child and I will research my fathers roots.

Sincerely
Michelle Denise Martins de Ruano-Serret
