Julius Cardozo, writing 13 Dec 2012, also gives me some information about Joseph L. Saldanha's family tree:
I came across another link (via google search) that I thought may be of interest to you - the genealogical tree of Joseph L Saldanha. Could be useful if one wanted to contact the surviving descendents of his family. http://freepages.genealogy.Very likely this is the same Simon Alvares who is mentioned as publisher in Saldanha's 1907 edition of the Khristapurana.
rootsweb.ancestry.com/~ aferris/SaldanhaAntonio/d8.htm Excerpt from the above link:255. Joseph Louis SALDANHA (Joseph Louis Lawrence95, Joseph42, Francis23, Manuel17, Francis9, Bonaventure2, Antonio1) was born on Aug 25, 1869 and died in 1928 at age 59.
Notes: Joseph Saldanha, a poet, was famous for his editing of the Christian Purana.
On the same page - I saw this: 252. Gracia SALDANHA (Joseph Louis Lawrence95, Joseph42, Francis23, Manuel17, Francis9, Bonaventure2, Antonio1) was born about 1865.
