Our Portuguese-American Ancestors: From the Azores and Madeira to the U.S.
- presented by Ralph Severson
There are over one million people living in the United States who have Portuguese roots, the majority coming from the Azores and Madeira. This class will explore various methods of tracing one's Luso-American ancestors across the Atlantic and back to the islands, and to the Portuguese mainland.

Ralph Severson is currently the director of the Oakland FamilySearch Library, and has been researching his Azorean ancestors since the 1980's. He continues to spend his working day as an investment adviser, and previously worked at Goldman Sachs for 30 years in the investment banking business. Ralph is married to Elizabeth Susan "Sue" Severson, also an avid genealogist, and has 5 married children and 22 grandchildren. Besides family history, Ralph's passions are family, baseball, the stock market, gardening and reading.
