Renas Family History, Pictures, and Documents

The Ramos' (later Renas') came from Santa Cruz on the island of Flores in the Azores. Jose and Maria immigrated in the 1870's. We have information on their ancestors on Flores from the very good church records transliterated by Francisco Gomes, and images from the Portuguese government on-line, but the very flexible Portuguese conventions for surnames can be rather confusing.
