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 was wondering if perhaps you would be interested to work on the Portal World-The Netherlands with Melissa and Bill and hopefully more members ? I was thinking maybe we can make it a sub Project of the Dutch Roots Project, where you all can add or work on more specific things related to the Netherlands you would like to see added there or work on.
If you are interested just add your name to the list and let me know, or you can of course contact Melissa or Bill directly.
Greets from the Netherlands,

You ask about Della Tryon from my posting. I have not followed Della but only Laura Tryon who is in my direct line. Apparently Della was added as a sibling of Laura and I have not checked her information. Gordon Kennedy

I’m Susie the new leader of the England Project. We are contacting all existing members of the project to find out how you are currently involved, and how you would like to be involved moving forward. Please have a look at the England Project page for more information, and then contact either myself or Gillian to let us know what you’d like to do, or if you have any questions. We can then list your interests, help you join the team in the Google group forum for England, and give you any help you might need to get going. If we don’t hear back from you we’ll assume you no longer want to be a part of the England Project at this time.
Many thanks and I look forward to hearing from you,
