Re: GedMatch to opt in or not?

Help with meaning of one word

This photo comes from a census, and we are curious what is the meaning of the word, above the two Sposo words. Does it refer to something about the marriage, or something else. Ammiegliata maybe.

Thanks

Re: DNA Testing

I would recommend FTDNA's Y test. and Ancestry's autosomal test. I would not waste my money on a mitochondrial DNA test. You can put your Y data, and Ancestry data into a third party database called Gedmatch. They are especially valuable since they have a chromosome browser, which shows locations on...

Re: DNA Testing

Good for you. I would suggest that you go to the Ellis Island site. They have all the ships lists of passengers on line now. I had go actually go to the national archives and find the ship passenger list with my grandparents on it. It took my wife and me all day to find them.

I came back with a lot of excitement in genereal, and little hope for me. I have done a Y test with Family Tree DNA. I even met with the president of the ...

Re: DNA Testing

I just heard that Ancestry DNA has stopped all DNA work. They also bought a database from another source and were not sharing it. FTDNA is still the best overall. I'm getting lots of matches, but none very interesting yet, but there are not a lot of Italians in there. My friend is going back to my a...
