Welcome to Italian Family Genealogy

family tree1This is my first post to my website.  I became intrested in Genealogy several years ago when I was looking for my Grandfathers birth record who was an orphan. I remember the day that I found his birth record, I was so excited, but couldn’t read it, ugh. But there happen to be a women who was at the family history center who could read it. It was bitter sweet. I remember going home and sitting in my back yard wondering why, Why did his mother abanden him in a strangers front yard. Who was she, what happen to bring her to the decision she made.  And most of all I thought who am I. I’m still searching, I had my uncle take a DNA test, in hopes maybe I will get the answer. In the last couple weeks I have gotten 2 hits on his DNA match, it’s could be a break threw, I’m keeping my fingers crossed.

Today I’m at the FGS Convention in Fort Wayne, Indiana.  I attended my first Genealogy Bloggers  dinner tonight, it was very enlighting to all the new programs the Family History Centers are coming out with this year and in 2014.  They are a wonderful organization with so many wonderful people that are so willing to help you out.

This is going to be a great week, so many seminars to go to and looking forward to all the great speakers, and making lots of new friends.

Right now I’m going to watch Who Do You Think You are, I’m so glad they brought the show back.

I look forward to posting my adventures in my Italian research and sharing my findings with you all.
