Press Release- Creola Genealogist will speak at the Cape Verde Progressive Center March 23,2013

For immediate release

March 6, 2013

East Providence, RI – The Creola Genealogist, Anna Lima Delgado, will speak about Cape Verdean History and Genealogy at the Cape Verde Progressive Center at 329 Grosvenor Avenue in East Providence, Rhode Island on March 23,  2013. This event will take place from 1-4pm.

“I have been interested in my family history since as long as I can remember. I was that pesky kid constantly asking questions of anyone who would answer me. Countless hours were spent listening to my grandmother and great grandmother talking about the “old country”. After a while, I could basically tell you anything about the island of Brava, Cape Verde as if I had actually been there!”

Ms. Lima Delgado will speak about tracing her family history from Massachusetts and Rhode Island back to the islands of Brava and Fogo, Cape Verde. Her path to discovery not only uncovered names and birth dates of her ancestors but also an unexpected discovery of her family’s Jewish roots. She will speak about having genealogical DNA testing that revealed Tuscan Italian lineage and a connection to distant genetic cousin who was adopted at birth and was able to finally meet her biological siblings.

This will also be an opportunity for people to learn about resources available in the US and Cape Verde and begin their own family trees, as well, as have access to extensive research and records of Cape Verdean families from the islands of Brava, Fogo, and Boa Vista.

Anna Lima Delgado is a second-generation Cape Verdean – American from Brockton, Ma who currently resides in Bowie, Md. She received her Masters degree in Communication Disorders from the University of Massachusetts- Amherst and began doctoral work in Linguistics at Boston University. She has been a Speech and Language Pathologist for the last 15 years and currently has a private-practice in Maryland. She has been researching Cape Verdean Crioulo linguistics, history and genealogy for several years.

  1. I am really interested in this topic and cannot make this event. Do you have any events scheduled for the Boston area? Or is there a way to email you my questions?
