I lead the Italian Roots project here at WikiTree. I welcome any questions and will try my best to support you as you develop profiles and records under this project. Name and Place Studies are especially welcome to be listed at Italian Roots, and I personally find Place Studies an especially good fit. It seems that once you get back to a town or commune in Italy the families interconnect in amazing ways.
I am working on One Name Studies and One Place Studies for several of my family lines. I also enjoy tracing the descendant lines of my ancestors. I am happy to connect with anyone who shares these interests.
My surname is Maranda - but in our line it was originally Marando, and changed in the generation of my great grandfather who emigrated to the USA, settling in Rochester, NY. This Marando line traces to Ferruzzano, Reggio di Calabria.
We believe our Uschold's came from Bavaria. They settled in Buffalo, New York, USA.
My Bader's are near Aixheim.
My Granacher's came to Buffalo, NY from Baden.
My Desmond's came to Buffalo, NY.
The surname shifted to DeFelice in Rochester, NY where my great grandfather and his parents settled. They were from Villa Santa Lucia degli Abruzzi, Italy. I am working on a place study of VSL.
My O'Brien line arrived in Buffalo, NY in the 1850s. Most of my knowledge on this surname pertains to our branch after arrival in the USA.
I've accumulated a good deal of data on both the Effinger and Schneggenburger's of Aixheim and their descendants.
My Marando line traces to Ferruzzano, Reggio di Calabria.
The town of Villa Santa Lucia deli Abruzzi in L'Aquila is the origin of my DeFelice (DiFelice) line.
I've wound up establishing a Tryon Name Study as I work to break through another of my brick walls. I've amassed a considerable database of Tryon's in America as well as in England, though I have not imported all of them. I am eager to connect with anyone working on the Tryon surname and variants.
All my family lines blended in Buffalo and Rochester, NY. As such I have become fairly knowledgeable about the Irish and Germans in Buffalo, and then the Italians and to a lesser extent the Ukrainians in Rochester.
I've not made as much progress on my Ukrainian heritage - but am eager to do so. Language and the writing system are a major barrier, but now that Summer Orman and I have kicked off the Slavic Roots project and I have eastablshed the Ukrainian Roots freespace project as a sub-project to that I hope we can assemble resources and guides that benefit anyone working and collaborating on Slavic Roots! For now, these are free-space projects, so please show your support so they may attain official standing on wikitree.

Ansel Chapman versus Anson Chapman -- Ruth Tryon married ANSON Chapman, and I have found in pursuing various Ansel Chapman records that they are not the same person. I can find very little about Anson Chapman, husband of Ruth Tryon, other than the marriage record, their daughter's baptism record, and some early census records in which (of course) his family members' names are not recorded. There are, in fact, two contemporaries named Ansel Chapman, one from Connecticut and one from Massachusetts. Really difficult to straighten them out!
