Brazil Immigration Records for Francis Henry "Hank" and Mabel Glover

19 August 2016

Watching the Rio 2016 Olympic Games reminded me of the time my Uncle Hank Glover and Aunt Mabel (Ruff) Glover lived in Brazil. My uncle worked for General Motors and after having spent time in South Africa, he was sent to work in Brazil. They lived in Sao Paulo, Brazil for a few years.



I remember when my uncle and aunt were in Brazil.  They visited once or twice while there.  I have a purple amethyst and yellow topaz from Brazil that they gave me.  My aunt and uncle enjoyed living in South Africa, but didn't find Brazil as nice. I remember my aunt talking about the lizards on the walls.  Conditions were not like they were use to.

Family Search has a record group: Brazil, São Paulo, Immigration Cards, 1902-1980. This record contains "registration cards for foreign citizens with permanent residency in São Paulo, issued by the Office of Public Safety and housed at the Arquivo Público do Estado de São Paulo", according to the Family Search description. Below are the cards for Francis Henry Glover and Mabel Louise Glover.

The type of information included on these cards is

  • Name of Immigrant
  • Date of immigration
  • Date and place of birth
  • Nationality
  • Marital status
  • Parents’ names
  • Profession or occupation
  • Place of residence in country of origin
  • Passport number with its date and place of issuance
  • Signature of the immigrant
I knew a lot of the information on this record already but the information provided here is great for genealogists.  One note: Francis Henry Glover listed his mother as Sarah L. Glover.  Sarah L. Glover was his step-mother.  Francis Henry Glover's biological mother was Emma Winkler, who died shortly after giving birth to Francis.

This is a piece of family history that brought back fond memories of my aunt and uncle.  They were both very loving, caring and special people.  It was nice to see their pictures and information from a time I remember.
