Italian Roots

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.

Name and Place Studies

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.

Marando Name Study

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.

Schneggenburger Name Study

Uschold Name Study

We believe our Uschold's came from Bavaria. They settled in Buffalo, New York, USA.

Bader Name Study

My Bader's are near Aixheim.

Granacher Name Study

My Granacher's came to Buffalo, NY from Baden.

Desmond Name Study

My Desmond's came to Buffalo, NY.

DiFelice Name Study

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.


O'Brien Name Study

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.

Aixheim Place Study

I've accumulated a good deal of data on both the Effinger and Schneggenburger's of Aixheim and their descendants.

Ferruzzano Place Study

My Marando line traces to Ferruzzano, Reggio di Calabria.

Villa Santa Lucia Degli Abruzzi Place Study

The town of Villa Santa Lucia deli Abruzzi in L'Aquila is the origin of my DeFelice (DiFelice) line.

Tryon Research

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.

General

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.

Ukrainian Research & Slavic Roots

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.

Thanks for your reply regarding Slavic Roots. I have added the tag and will look for the mailing list on the Slavic Roots page. I don't think that I have time to develop a Slovak sub group just now but I would be interested in doing that. How much time does it take?

Hi Michael - Roberta asked me to share the WWI vet profiles and their family profiles with the Jewish Roots project group. What is the best way for me to do that, please? Everyone I've worked on has been associated with the project already. Is there another place I should share also? There are many sources on the profiles, but I haven't written biographies. (One of the WWI vets has a profile that Liz Noland Shifflett wrote though.) Please let me know how to proceed, and I'm happy to share the information. Best regards - Amy
