Maduro Family Branches
Individual family history, Jewish genealogy, Portuguese genealogy

Welcome to my blog about branches on the Maduro family tree. This blog is about the Maduro family and associated families. Some of these include Brandon, Cardoze, de Castro, Delvalle, Fidanque, Halman, de Leon, de Lima, Lindo, Piza, Robles, Sasso, de Sola, and Toledano.

Over the years I’ve collected genealogical information about the Levy Maduro family of Amsterdam, their Portuguese ancestors, and their Maduro descendants around the world. In this blog I’ll describe the Maduro connection to some of those other families.

We hope that this blog will provide additional information to those researching these families, as well as allied families and other branches and stimulate productive discussions; we hope also that it will attract new cousins who will help add to our information base.


  1. Thanks Schelly for helping to highlight these blogs! I knew your would love Maduro Branches and I thought about sending the link to you via email earlier!

    And I appreciate your continued support of GeneaBloggers! You rock!

  2. Thanks for highlighting our blogs. I have recently been trying to find out about the Jewish Bakers Union in London with little success. I must try harder!

  3. Even though I live in Canada and my Benoy Family web site (which my blog supplements) has a .ca suffix, there are very few Canadians on my family tree. My focus has been primarily on the Benoys in England and their descendants throughout the world.
