Irish Roots Member Interests
Theresa (Ferracci) Myers has Italian Roots.
Theresa (Ferracci) Myers has Irish ancestors.
English flag
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.

Ciao! I created a thread for the Italy project teams here:

I hope you check it out. If I have you down for a team, let me know. If you still haven't decided, feel free to comment. Thanks!

Ciao! This is just a general check-in for members of the Italy project. I am checking to see who is still interested in being a member of the project as we go through some much needed restructuring. I was also wondering what teams you would like to be on. We’ve created teams for each part of Italy. North, South, Islands etc. They will be explained further in an upcoming g2g post. Stay tuned. For now, please let me know if you are still interested in the project and if you’d like to be a member of a team.

HI, thanks for checking in. I would still like to be involved in the Italy project, but I find I don't have very much time for genealogy these days, so I would have to say I'll stay on a team if it's ok to be a pretty passive member - that may change in future though hard to say when. I'll try to keep an eye on the G2G posts but if you could post another message to me page when that is posted it would help ensure that I catch. it. Thanks!
It's fine. I just wanted to check in and see where everyone was. I will definitely keep you posted on the post. Thanks!

In regards to John Craskell Falconer's parentage , the citation, which is already there, is pp. 49 and 517, in my book Falconer of Halkerton, citing Jamaica Deeds, vol. 457, p. 230. This record series was at the Island Record Office, Spanish Town, when I looked at it in 1991, but I think now is in the Jamaica Archives. The deed is abstracted in the book.

Hi Theresa,

I haven’t heard back from you about the break up of the United Kingdom Project. I hope all is well with you. I assume you don’t wish to join any of the country-level projects at present, and will go ahead and remove the United Kingdom badge. If you wish to join England, Scotland, Wales or Ireland in the future, you would be most welcome to do so via the respective G2G sign-up post.

Many thanks for all your contributions,

Susie :-)

Hi Theresa,

We realise the time has come to dissolve the UK Project in favour of the individual country projects of England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland.

We are checking in with all UK badge holders to find out which country project(s) you would like to be in so you can collaborate with other members, have the opportunity to select which team(s) you would like to join, and so we can ensure you have all the correct badges.

Please respond by PM to let us know which country project(s) you would like to be in. Please don’t assume we know. We are effectively starting from scratch to make sure no one falls through the cracks.

Once you have done this, the Coordinator for Membership in the relevant country project(s) will be in touch to help get you situated.

Many thanks,


Hi Theresa;

The Ireland Project (previously the Irish Roots Project) has now changed its structure into Teams. We require everyone with the Ireland Badge to be a member of at least one Team or Sub-Team and our google group.

See for details.

The Teams are :-

1 Categories Team
2 Counties Team
3 Managed Profiles Team
4 Membership Team
5 Profile Improvement Team
6 Topics Team
7 Diaspora

Can you let me know if you’d like to stay on in the new project and which team(s) you’d like to join. Please also let me know your e-mail address so that I can get you added to the project’s Google Group or confirm you are already a member of the google group.

Many thanks,

Amy Gilpin Ireland Project Coordinator

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.
