Canadian History Project United Kingdom Project Puritan Great Migration Italian Roots Project



Chris Ferraiolo has Italian Roots.
Chris was featured in a Meet Our Members Post on the WikiTree Blog!

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

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:

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,

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

Karen ~ Volunteer Coordinator
