Categories: Italian Roots.
I was born in northeastern Massachusetts and began researching my family roots on Ancestry.com in 2007. All my life I've heard stories from both my Italian side and my French-Canadian side. I decided to see what else I could find online and I was surprised to find a wealth of information!
My grandparents were always willing to give me all kinds of information to help me on my quest to learn more both sides of the family. I've learned some amazing things on this journey and made some amazing friends.
Along with my genealogy hobby, I have a webcomic and a show on Youtube where I review comic books. You can find both here: Starbolts.blogspot.com
The surnames I am most interested in researching are on my Italian side as there isn't a whole lot about them in the United States. They are:

(* )=Endogamy happens in this generation as people appear more than once in the tree.
I am studying various places my ancestors came from. On my Italian side, I have ancestors from these parts of Italy:
Paternal relationship is confirmed with an AncestryDNA test match between Chris Ferraiolo and James Ferraiolo, Parent/Child. Predicted relationship reported by AncestryDNA: Parent/child relationship based on 3,449 centimorgans shared across 61 DNA segments; Confidence: Extremely High.
