One thought on “Visit Brazil – go global!

  1. Strange coincidence? Doing family history, I see that Alderman Thomas Preston is mentioned on the website for Lancaster Cathedral. His daughter, my grandmother went to Brazil in 1914, married a British civil engineer employed in Brazil, had 2 children, and died in 1979 and is buried in this small village in the state Minas Gerais. I was brought up there, so I know a fair bit about it. Best of luck with your project.
