Save the Date: July 1st

Two Events for Cape Verdean Recognition Week

5:00-7:00 Cape Verde Book Fair: Books about Cape Verde and Cape Verdean culture and history will be on sale in a book fair conducted by the National Library of Cape Verde. In past years, there have been children’s books, cook books, fiction and nonfiction, and various books about the culture, history, music and literature of Cape Verde

7:00-8:00 Our Cape Verdean Legacy: 1935-2013: Anna Lima Delgado, the Internet’s “Creola Genealogist” blogger will present and interpret the “Cape Verde Poor Relief Stereopticon Show”, a slide show of images of the Cape Verde Islands from 1935. Ms. Lima Delgado will draw upon her extensive knowledge of Cape Verdean history, genealogy and culture to bring life to a famine relief slide show that was created in 1935 by New Bedford visitors to the Islands. The show will include seldom seen slides from the collection of the Library featuring daily life in Cape Verde in 1935 and notables Eugenio Tavares, Baltasar Lopes da Silva and Pedro Cardoso. 
New Bedford Public Library, 613 Pleasant St., 3rd Fl 
All events are presented by the New Bedford Public Library, the Cape Verdean Recognition Committee and the New Bedford Historical Society and admission is free to the public.

Since beginning this journey of discovery for my personal family history I have always felt it was important to share as much information with not only my family but to anyone of Cape Verdean descent and non- Cape Verdeans, alike. I feel that our history is so intertwined with the general history of so many people’s that we can all learn from what happened on this tiny arquipelago off the coast of Senegal.

That being said, I have spent a lot of my own time, money and resources researching and combing through thousands of documents and additional hours putting all the pieces together. I really feel it is only right that I ask for a bit of recognition when someone decides to use any work that I have researched and produced material for. I have no issues at all with my research being included in anyone’s work provided that they at least seek appropriate permissions – and at least a phone call – I’d even settle for an email.
