Theodor's Immigration Card

Theodor Reinacher

In a previous post, I shared the Immigration Card for my maternal great-grandaunt, Crecenciana Aurora Matus Villatoro. In that post I shared the news that I found the Immigration Card for Crecenciana's husband, Theodor Reinacher. I'd like to share his card with you today.

Here's the front of Theodor's Immigration Card.1



Information provided in this document:

Name: Theodor Reinacher
Admitted into the national territory in character (Immigration Status): Permanent
Nationality: German, Married
Father: Theodor Reinacher
Mother: Rosine Auguste Reinacher
Profession: Trade
ID Card: No. 506.547
Record No. 170.272 (Exp. 18/5/43
Residence: Rua Santo Antonio, 117
Employment: On his own
Local:

Theodor's residence is the same as Crecenciana's on her Immigration Card.

And here's the back of Theodor's Immigration Card.2


There's a lot of information on the back of this card. Since I don't speak or read Portuguese, I again turned to Google Translate for help.

Translation from Google:
Comments:
He landed in Rio de Janeiro, on 09.09.1924, by steam "Cap Norte"
On 4 Sep 1950 obtained duplicate portfolio by poor state of conservation of the primitive reason. 19 Sep 1950 communication residence for av. July 9 145 jobs for R. Libero Badaro 152 and 6. and revalidated three times, your card. Mod. 19 EB
He was enrolled in the Department R. G. Belo Horizonte Foreigners under the 42,221 as contained in the office communication in 616 of 24/04/61 that dept. CF
As you can see, this isn't an ideal translation. If any of my readers can help me translate the back of this card, please let me know. Thank you!

The first sentence, however, was clearer. It looks like Theodore arrived in Rio de Janeiro on 9 September 1924 via the SS Cap Norte. To see a photo of the Cap Norte, click HERE.

  1. Yeah, that first sentence was confusing, but it sounds like he obtained a duplicate because the first was ruined or in bad shape, worn out maybe. I know finding these immigration cards has been exciting for you.
