Port of Genoa in Africa?
According to our family oral history, the ancestors on my paternal grandmother's side came from Portuguese West Africa from the port of "Genoa." Any clues, ideas or thoughts as to whether Genoa is a misspelling or mispronunciation of an African port or city and which one? I don't have a lot of other information. A cousin on this side of the family reported that his grandfather spoke Portuguese and carried a Farsi Bible. I don't know if this is relevant or not. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
