Searching for my ancestors….

I have been wanting to find out more about my family history and where I really come from, so after seeing many commercials on TV about ancestry.com, I decided to take the geneology plunge… Luckily for me, many others from my mother’s family have already compiled information that I can gather easily….¬† I found out that my grandfather’s mother’s side has been in the country (settled in Maryland) since 1654, only 34 years after the Mayflower came here!!¬† It is fascinating to me!

My Italian side is harder to find out, but I am anxiously awaiting a packet of info from my grandfather’s brother. I did happen to find some photos of the ships that some of my Di Napoli relatives sailed from Naples to Ellis Island on.

I never was interested in history in school, but now I wish I would have paid more attention. I am really enjoying uncovering the hidden treasures of my family history. I purchased the Family Tree 2010 Platinum edition and am anxiously awaiting the arrival of it, so I can really dive in to this!
