The entire process of Portuguese citizenship through the Sephardic Jews is based on the documentary proof of genealogical bonds with a Sephardic ancestor. It is common for some to confuse family tree and genealogical study (or genealogical report). Don’t worry, you’ll easily understand the difference:

1. The tree Genealogical

The family tree is the result of a genealogical study and a summary of this study. In it we easily identify who are the parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, etc., and where and when they were born, for example. In general, there is no obligation to prove documentary. The family tree can also be a graphical representation of this genealogical study. Some people even print and use it as a decoration object (the tip is!). It is worth saying that the Israeli Community of Lisbon (CIL) requires a pattern of analysis of these trees.

2. The study Genealogical

O estudo genealógico, também chamado de relatório genealógico, é o levantamento de documentos que identifiquem gerações e comprovem a ligação de uma pessoa com os seus ancestrais. Nele, é necessário juntar documentos como certidões de nascimento, casamento ou óbito, bibliografias. No caso da cidadania pela via sefardita, esses documentos precisam chegar até o ancestral sefardita. Confira aqui uma lista 5 tipos de documentos importantes para a comprovação do vínculo sefardita. Cada genealogista pode aplicar uma metodologia aos relatórios, mas aqui, a CIL também exige padrões de análise do relatório.

Did it get easy to figure out the difference? It is also important to know that both documents are a requirement of CIL for the issuance of the certificate of sephardic bond. Many people think they already have genealogical study when they actually have only the family tree. If you need your genealogical study to apply for Portuguese nationality via sephardic route, please respond to the pre-analysis form.
