Born in Rochester, NY in the early 1970's - I am the youngest child of a 1st generation Italian American - Dr. Joseph Guzzetta and a "just off the plane" Dane - Kirsten Knudsen.
I am on a quest to learn more about my family history on both sides of the Atlantic and hopefully solve a few "family mysteries" along the way.
Always happy to help out - If anyone has any questions, comments or just wondering "how are we related" Please feel free to let me know.
Maternal/Child relationship is confirmed by an AncestryDNA test match between Kirsten (Knudsen) Marsh - Ancestry member: gbmkir57, and her son Mike Guzzetta - Ancestry member: mikeguzzetta. Their MRCAs are Kirsten's parents, Mike's grandparents, Kristian Knudsen and Emma Knudsen. Predicted relationship from AncestryDNA: Parent, Child; Confidence: Extremely High.
Paternal relationship for Mike Guzzetta and his father Joseph Guzzetta Jr. is confirmed by a AncestryDNA test match between John Garvey and Mike Guzzetta, 3rd Cousins. Their most-recent common ancestors are Giuseppe Antonio D'Andrea and Francesca (Miceli) D'Andrea, the great great grandparents of John Garvey and Mike Guzzetta. Predicted relationship from AncestryDNA: 4th Cousins, Amount of shared DNA is 36 centimorgans across 2 DNA segments; Confidence: Extremely High. (NOTE: shared centimorgans on low side for 3rd cousins but still in range thus the 4th cousin estimation by AncestryDNA)
First-hand information. Entered by M Guzzetta at registration.
It may be possible to confirm family relationships by comparing test results with Mike or other carriers of his ancestors' Y-chromosome or mitochondrial DNA.
Y-chromosome DNA test-takers in his direct paternal line on WikiTree:
Family Tree DNA Y-DNA Test 838 markers, haplogroup G-FT14587, FTDNA kit #873595, MitoYDNA ID T10578[compare]
Mitochondrial DNA test-takers in the direct maternal line:
Family Tree DNA mtDNA Test Full Sequence, haplogroup T2b24b, FTDNA kit #873595, MitoYDNA ID T10577[compare]
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Mike:
