Theresa (Ferracci) Myers has English ancestors.
This user is a native speaker of English.


Theresa was born in Bronx, New York. Her maternal immigrating ancestors were great grandparents John Canavan and wife Mary Howley from Ireland, and great grandfather John Griffith Bowden from England, who married Jane (Jennie) Connolly from Manhattan, New York; Jennie's parents, Theresa's great, great grandparents, were Patrick Connolly and Mary Kennedy, both born in Ireland.

Little is yet known about Canavan ancestors; history tells that the Canavan clan had a notable sept who were physicians; the name originated from counties Mayo and Galway.

Theresa's paternal immigrant ancestors were great grandfather Giulio Alfonso Ferracci from Salerno, and his wife Raffaelina Stabile from the same place, who probably arrived first in New York, traveling to Canada before spending time in Ohio and then settling in New York City; great great grandmother Jane Gibson of Tipperary, Ireland with husband Patrick Donahue from Ireland; great great grandfather John Francis Noonan from Dublin, with his wife Annie Keegan of Manhattan; Annie's parents, Theresa's 3rd-great grandparents, were Thomas and Brigit Keegan, from Ireland, counties unknown.

Family lore has it that Giulio's father, Theresa's great great grandfather Nicola Ferracci, was a trusted colleague of Garibaldi. Theresa has at the time of this profile creation, been unable to find record of his death, which by family history was in Ohio, United States.

Theresa trained as an architect and as a physician, and is a licensed physician in California. She also ran a small import clothing company for a number of years out of West Palm Beach Florida and San Francisco, California. She is lately very invested in learning about her own history as well as genealogy research in general. She is in the process of seeking dual Italian citizenship which comes to her through the line of descent from her great grandfather Giulio Ferracci. She is married and has one child who is a minor at the time of this profile creation.

Hi Theresa,

I added the Potters to WikiTree as part of my goal of adding Warwickshire Cemeteries to WT (I'm the Warwickshire Team Leader as part of the England Project), so unfortunately I do not have any further sources for them aside from FindAGrave, though I'm happy to do some research into it later today.

Sincerely, Amy

Teresa I do have some of that documentation I just have not added it yet. I have a marriage between Maria Hartnett and Michael Connell. Connell being the name used the O was not used necessarily in the documentation until after 1900

Hi Theresa, The Category:Ireland is now a high-level category. High-level categories no longer connect with individual people profiles. Profiles are to be connected with a sub-category. The FAQ explains a little "Everyone who uses categories — members from around the world — need to use the same names in order for them to serve their purpose. " see

There is a more complex discussion of categories

If the person profile does not have a geographic location then there are categories for research such as Category:Ireland_Family_Brick_Walls

Well I’ll keep on as profile manager if I’m a descendant, but unless it’s someone I plan to research further I take myself off as manager. Often these profiles are later adopted by other Wikitreers who continue to work on them. Some of the Husted profiles I’ve created (I work on connecting everyone with my surname) have been then adopted when their descendants join Wikitree. Sometimes people see a profile is managed and are less inclined to add to it, anticipating drama with the PM—which is silly on a wiki but happens often enough to be a problem. I stay on the TL in case of vandalism or bad edits.

Hi Theresa thank you for connecting Cyrus! He was such an interesting person. I am still on the trusted list and keeping an eye on changes to the profile. I removed myself as manager so he's free for someone else to take on if they wish. AFAIK, it's not against policy to create and orphan a profile, but if I've missed a new rule please let me know. - Heather

You commented on Hiram Colton Logan's profile in April regarding Find a Grave and Hiram's parentage. I just wanted to let you know that I've straightened things out on the WikiTree side of things using census data. Thanks, Rebecca McCall

Hi Theresa,

I’m Susie the new leader of the England Project. We are contacting all existing members of the project to find out how you are currently involved, and how you would like to be involved moving forward. Please have a look at the England Project page for more information, and then contact either myself or Gillian to let us know what you’d like to do, or if you have any questions. We can then list your interests, help you join the team in the Google group forum for England, and give you any help you might need to get going. If we don’t hear back from you we’ll assume you no longer want to be a part of the England Project at this time.

Many thanks and I look forward to hearing from you,

Susie :-)

Theresa, it's just an option. Some people like using the templates ( which includes the category) and some prefer ( like me ) just using the categories. Just wanted to let you know about it.

Cheers, Maggie
