Hi Bob,

I've been doing more research on the Ciufo/Chufo families of Hubbard, Ohio. The 1910 census shows that Paul and Mary Chufo were operating a boarding house on North Main Street in Hubbard. Their son, Angelo, would later marry my great-aunt Lucille Madeline.

I keep getting E-mail's from the BB that I have a private message from SHANAC55 but when I try to read it this site says that I am not authorized to read private messages ?

Hi Bob_Chufo -
My name is Mindy and my neice is Shana55, with whom I know you have chatted. Shana has done extensive research into this and her tenacity has finally paid off, I believe. We have worked together for many months trying to find links to our Chufo side of the family.

Your Uncle Anthony, your father's brother, is my husband's grandfather. I am married to his namesake, Daniel, who is Anthony's daughter Polly's, second son. We have some information but like you, have missing pieces and are trying to connect the missing pieces. I also have many photographs that lack names which I would love to match up with information. Shana and I both would like to connect with you by email if you are comfortable with that and would like to share the information.

Any information and/or photos you would like to share would be much appreciated. We both look forward to hearing more from you.

Thank you.

My neice, Shana55 and I are still trying to connect with Bob Chufo from Youngstown, Ohio regarding our direct family connection. Please let one of us know if you are interested in making direct contact. Thank you.

Hi Mindy & shana55!

My name is Beth Ann Chufo Nichols & also live in Pittsburgh. I am Robert (Bob) Chufo's eldest daughter & Frank Chufo's (Tony's brother) eldest grandchild. Frank has 4 grandchildren - my sister, Amy Lynne Chufo Prezelski, & my father Bob's younger brother Ronald (Ron)'s two 'kids' - Christine Frances & Gregory Ronald. Bob & Ron also have a younger sister, Judythe (Judy) Chufo Roth.

I inadvertently stumbled upon both this site &, furthermore, your posts, researching something completely different. What a pleasant surprise! I just notified my father that the two of you have been looking to reconnect & passed that info on to him today.

It's interesting to confirm that our ancestors came from Tufo, which my Aunt Judy had told us since I was a child. The actual spelling was a different story though. However, having studied the Italian language briefly in college, 'Ciufo" makes the most sense phonetically. While most pronounce our last name with a hard CH, as in 'chop' - We all were taught to pronounce the CH soft, as in 'show,' which led us to believe we had some French influence since the CH was pronounced like the French CH in words such as 'chapeau' (hat) or 'château.' I suspect that had something to do with my Polish grandmother's interpretation of it to make us sound 'more sophisticated' in her mind. LOL Bless her heart!

One question: Mindy - or even shana55 - Is your niece 'shana55' (or YOU, shanna55) Tony's great-granddaughter?

My Dad & his brother do have some old pictures & documents - I helped clean out my grandparents home in Youngstown. And my Aunt Judy has some interesting ancestral information that she used to tell us when we were growing up. Wasn't sure how 'true' they were though! We all continue to be a pretty close-knit family, considering this day & age. I would be interested in discovering more!

Hope we can reconnect.

Beth

Also, you may pm me at choofz66@gmail.com - I just noticed that the last 2 posts before mine were from two different tags - are you the same Aunt of shana55 or two different ones? Apologies for addressing just Mindy & shana55, if a second aunt is involved.
