Weekend Chat!
Chris Ferraiolo was a Weekend Chat Guest Host March 23, 2018; March 25, 2018.

I was born in northeastern Massachusetts and began researching my family roots on 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:

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
  • Copolla
  • Carrabs
  • Forgione
  • Penta
