I was born in northeastern Massachusetts and began researching my family roots on Ancestry.com in 2006. All my life I've heard stories from both my Italian side and my French-Canadian/American side. I decided to see what else I could find online and I was surprised to find a wealth of information! To this day it honestly surprises me how much information is out there waiting to be discovered.

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. Not to mention all the cousins I have found along the way!

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:

  • Ferraiolo
  • Tedesco
  • Gullo
  • Coppola
  • Carrabs
  • Forgione
  • Penta

I also enjoy writing, drawing and running. Oh and my last name is pronounced "Ferry-Oh-Low". If you'd like to hear it go here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UzXFq_m9hQ0

One Place Studies

I am studying various places my ancestors came from. On my Italian side, I have ancestors from these parts of Italy:

  1. Campania
  2. San Pietro a Maida

In the summer of 2020, I started an Italians in Haverhill category based on the book by Patricia Trainor O'Mailley. Looking at how many relatives I had living in the city on both sides of the family inspired me to create a One Place Study based solely on Haverhill, Massachusetts. Check it out here: Haverhill, Massachusetts One Place Study

In April of 2021, I created a space page for the Italians in Haverhill category. Check it out here: Space:Italians_in_Haverhill.

i found this page check it out... https://www.angelfire.com/ny5/clinton/FamilyNamePages/LESPERANCEPage2.html The contributors visited the supposed home town Dolmayrac and observed records first-hand. There are some conflicting observations but they feel very confident in their findings. happy hunting!

I have been working on pending merges for 2 days. You told me that they counted. I'm pretty sure I should have more than 68 in my team scores. Can you help me understand this?
Hey, Melanie.

They should have counted. I'm not sure how the team scoring actually works because I edited more than 250 times. I think I might have missed the "status" button a few times. Not sure.

posted by Chris Ferraiolo
The pending merges don't have a status button. How can we figure out if they count or if they don't count?
Hi Chris - thanks for connecting with me at RootsTech. I’m looking forward to learning from you! I’m looking forward to connecting the missing pieces from my Canadian family. Looks like you have done some amazing work here.
posted by Emily Hansen
No problem, Emily. If there's anything you need, let me know. I had a lot of help with the Canadian side of things.

Hi Chris! I'm Juan Manuel, you might know me from family history fanatics youtube's channel. I have -huge- italian roots, mainly from the north but in the south I just found out to have ancestry in Filadelfia -ex Castelmonardo-, Calabria (Surnames: Sganga, Destito, and Anello).

Also Have ancestry in Pescopennataro, Osimo, Valtellina and Oltrepò Pavese.

posted by Juan Manuel Cardoso
Hi, Juan!

I think I've seen you in the chat a couple times on the channel. I looked at the tree. You should definitely join us in the Italy project. =D It's a very good tree. Filadelfia is in Calabria and I have an Anello cousin. I haven't found the connection, yet. But, I do know that the town is relatively close to San Pietro a Maida and Jacurso. That makes me wonder.

Here's the Italy project join thread: https://www.wikitree.com/g2g/864503/joining-the-italy-project-benventuti?show=1180316#a1180316

Hi, Chris my (very) northern friend!

Thank you for your participation in October 2020’s Source-a-thon. Your contributions helped us to clear over 57,000 profiles that needed sourcing. This makes our Shared Tree all that much better. Also, it's always great to yak with you during the live chats.

Keep up the great work!

Hi Chris, I would love to participate and better understand the project. North Italy is my primary area of interest and research (especially Piedmonte and Liguria), and I need to learn more about South Italy (particularly Campania). But I am happy to be of use anywhere the help is needed!

No problem. I will add you into those areas. =D

Chris:

I expect we may be too distant to have any atDNA matches. I used FTDNA and I am not on GedMatch, so no way to tell right now. Cheers, Jim

Re: Hey. Did some DNA confirmation for the Legault kids you manage. It was for the children of Jacques Legault and Delphine Gourgon. Hope things are going good.

Chris, Do you want to manage them?

Hi Chris,

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,

Susie

Hello Chris,

Thank you so much for responding to our check-in for the Acadia Project

We are sorry to hear that you are not currently active, but we understand that interests shift as we grow our shared tree and that some members may have moved on to projects more pertinent to the branches they are currently building. Please know that you will always be welcome to rejoin should your interests shift back in this direction.

Thank you so much for your participation; we genuinely appreciate it.

Karen ~ Volunteer Coordinator

It is indeed :-)
I sent you the message at the right time then :-)
Thanks Chris, that was the fastest response I have ever had.

Take care Karen
