Man with roots in New Bedford seeks public’s help in reconnecting with family after decades apart


“Hello, I am the grandson of Mrs. PORTAL Arminda and Mr. Rodrigues Albino who died on Saturday, January 3, 1998 in New Bedford.

I live in France now. I remember very well having seen my grandparents when I was young, twice at the age of 10 and 12 years old. We had come with my father (his son: Portal Manuel) and we had seen family, uncles, aunts, cousins. My father died 5 years ago and I would love to get back in touch with my family from back then that now live in New Bedford.

The problem is I don’t remember their first and last names at all. If one of you remembers that time and us, I would be happy to get back to you. Thank you in advance.

Here are pictures of me in 1980, the 1st I am with my grandparents and the second I make fool with my grandfather.”-Albino Portal.
