The Finger Family in Brazil

a compilation of information from Marcos Finger of Brazil

Hello, I'm Marcos Paulo Finger, live in Brazil and I am a descendant of Johan (João) Finger, Germany to Brazil in 1827, I was surprised when researching I found this information on your site. I wonder what the connection with the Fingers of Johann's of USA and if you have knowledge of this acendentes.

Johann Finger... had seven children: John (first marriage) from which I descend, the second wife Catherine Maldhaner (Germany); Anton, Jacob James, Peter, Catherine, Margaret (Finger first born in Brazil) and Balthazar.

I hope you can understand me, because I do not speak English and used a translator for text you write.

I also saw another Finger on your site, Peter, who came later to Brazil and I have the following information about this:
