Dear Mr. Gracias, I am writing on behalf of a close friend in Mumbai. I have found her mother's birth certificate and grandparents baptism, marriage and death certificates. Unfortunately I want to know the position as to whether Portugues Law recognises parents that are unmarried. In another words: illegitimate children. My friend was born in 1955 and unable to find her parents marriage certificate. She would like to seek Portuguese citizenship directly from her mothers side - the goan connection. I would appreciate a response if this is feasible and under which specific Portuguese part of the Nationality Act. Many thanks and regards. Viona Philips
