(Quito) d’Assumpcao has written 2 articles for our
Casa Down Under newsletter on genealogy - ‘Are we
Related?” published January 2008, and “Macanese
Families” published in September 2008.
How many of us can really appreciate the enormous undertaking
that he has taken upon himself when he embarked on this
venture without any fanfare in order to present to us,
the Macanese people, not only in Australia but to those
who are spread throughout the world, the ability to trace
our ancestry through a Website that contains an electronic
data base of some 44,500 people of Macanese descent.
This was indeed an enormous achievement and Casa de Macau
Management Committee would like to publicly acknowledge
and thank Henrique d’Assumpcao for his achievement
through this medium.
On behalf of the Casa Committee and members, we
wish to officially commend you for your commitment and
work on Macanese genealogy. Your passion in establishing
a web database of Macanese families has provided an excellent
resource and pathway to our ancestry, for the prosperity
of future generations.
We acknowledge and appreciate the huge undertaking, including
the many hours of laborious work over many years. You
have provided an important link and access to our heritage
for the benefit of all the Macanese communities around
With much gratitude, admiration and pride – we salute
Yvonne Maria Vieira Ribeiro Cruz Herrero
