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:

Marie Langlois married to Julien Constantineau... her father is Jonas and they married in France.
Marie Langlois with Noel as father, was born in New France and died young.
Genealogy is not a copy and paste from others... we have to search for evidence before we write information.
Unfortunetaly, too many people just copy others' work with full of errors.
