Genealogia das famílias da aldeia de Colvá da província de Salcete / Genealogy of families of the village of Colvá of the province of Salcete.

This is a project to compile the genealogy of illustrious/noble ancestral families either related directly or indirectly belonging to the village of Colvá (Colluá) that included Vanelim, Sernabatim, Gandaulim of the then province of Salcete from pre-15th century to 1975. Families were: Roiz (Rodrigues), Friz (Fernandes), Mascarenhas, Aguiar, Gracias, Costa, Santimano, Vales. These families belonged to the parish church called Igreja Nossa Senhora das Mercês de Colvá. This church was built in 1630 and affiliated to the parish of Benauly until 1635. Before 1635, these aforementioned illustrious and noble connected families and all their subjects belonged to Igreja de São João Baptista from 1581.

All the descendants of these noble families of the Portuguese empire belonging to Colvá from the late 15th century until date are recorded here. The other families who later integrated and are also recorded here are: Silva Pereira, Pereira, Diniz, Noronha, Serrão, Ferrão, Furtado, Silva, Vás, Machado, Mesquita, Martyres, Barbosa Barreto. These families moved into Colvá (includes Sernabatim, Vanelim, Gandaulim) and migrated post the early 18th century.
