    1. Re: [BRAZIL-BA] BRAZIL-BA Digest, Vol 3, Issue 1
    2. Hello Diane, I am still very interested to find traces of my relatives in the state of Baia but am discouraged by the difficulties to research in Brazil. Just in case you might have a suggestion, I repeat a summary of my search. I am seeking to find data on family members who in 1923 emigrated from Austria to Brazil. The only data found so far in Brazil was a confirmation by the Museo do Imigrante of the arrival in the port of Santos of Leo Schiffler, rom. catholic, born 11.02.1897 in Haag, Austria, his wife Erika Strauss, roman catholic, born 06.06. 1900 in Vienna, Austria, and their daughter Erika, born 16.7.1921 in Moedling, Austria. I found in the Vienna (Austria) registry of travelers a record from 1935 that the Schiffler couple with daughter Erica and now also two sons, Cesar, born 7.4.1927 and Leon, born 31.8.1932 stayed there for three weeks. They had declared their place of origin "Baia, Brazil" without any other detail. The boys seem to have been born in Brazil. I have not been able to find detailed census data for the years following 1925. I am searching since several years but so far to no avail as the Brazilian data is widely dissembled and practically impossible to access without a long and arduous field trip over there. Any hint will be much appreciated.
