    “Francisco’s maternal grandfather is named Silvio Costa.

    Francisco’s maternal grandmother is Maria Dominga de Souza (the daughter of Bernardino Manoel de Souza and Maria Joana de Jesus).” Weird. Just Portuguese surnames, where’s the german? He probably was confusing Poland with Germany, his polish side must be from some part in Poland that used to be part of Germany.
