At our monthly meeting in October, 2012, Amanda Chilaka shared some of her extensive research related to her Cape Verdean ancestors.
Amanda, a CCGS member, initially began researching with her grandfather, John Raneo, a well known figure in the town of Harwich. As she learned more, she expanded her research to include all Harwich residents of Cape Verdean ancestry.
She has recently contacted us with the news that her book, Early Cape Verdean and Portuguese Genealogy of Harwich, MA, has been published and is now available. You may order a copy directly from the publisher, iUniverse Publishing, or through Amazon.com.
