I just found out that my great mother [Maria Fernandes] was Maria DaSilva she and two sisters came from Mederia. I also know that they are connected to the Fernandes, not by blood,but as family comming from the same part of the world if you know what I mean. As far as I know, they came on the same ship. I've connected my cousin in Guyana and ask her to go to the church and see if she can get the records from the preist. I'll share the info with you. In the mean time if you have any info on the DaSilva I'm hopping you we can share with me. My e-mail email@example.com
Are the DaSliva and Fernandes you are speaking of is from Guyana too? If so i can connect my in Canada and see what she knows. Hope to hear from you soon.
