Re: Very Surprising Results

Many people take a DNA test to see their ethnicity results and don't realize that every company will show different results and results from individual companies will change over time. This is because when a testing company like Ancestry or third-party site like GEDmatch provides ethnicity results, ...

Re: Marriage index entry

That's very interesting, Angela Grace. I've seen long names with commas between each portion, but the portions were single words. Rosa Maria must have been named after at least three people with these double names.

I'll post a larger image or two soon.

Re: Marriage index entry

I wondered about Anna, too, or even a second Maria, but that would be puzzling. I agree, I need the actual record. In the meantime, I'll look through the index again to see if there might be another candidate.

Thanks for your input.

Re: Marriage index entry

The image is not online. This is a screenshot from a photo I took of the Indice Decennale. I'm attaching two more versions, both sharpened a few times and one negative image. Unfortunately, the word after Angela is smudged. I'm looking for a marriage, probably in Ferrandina, for a young woman baptiz...

Marriage index entry

Can anyone make out the words between "Cafarelli Maria Angela" and "Nubile" in the entry for Michele LoSquadro's bride, record #62, in this index from Ferrandina (MT)?

Civil Records for Baiano and Sirignano, Avellino

Can anyone tell me whether records for Baiano and Sirignano are included under another comune in the record collection "Italy, Avellino, Sant'Angelo dei Lombardi, Civil Registration (Tribunale), 1866-1910" online on FamilySearch.org? I rather doubt it, but thought I should ask. Thanks. Les...

Re: DNA Testing

I agree with bottino about FTDNA. That's the company I've used for myself, my husband, and an older cousin who agreed to let me test his Y-DNA, since he's the only one left on my father's paternal line. I don't even really know him, but he's my dad's first cousin (my dad is deceased), and another co...

Re: DNA Testing

The percent breakdown can change slightly as more people are tested and therefore the database used to determine and describe results changes. I also understand that the description of ethnic breakdown varies with the company doing the testing, so FamilyTreeDNA and 23andMe might give somewhat differ...

Re: Excited - heard from Accettura Italy!

The town official in Accettura is unusually responsive to email requests for information and typically replies within a couple weeks. I've had no such luck with any other town.

Re: Excited - heard from Accettura Italy!

Maria, I just now saw your last post from January. I have a research colleague's indexing spreadsheet showing a marriage of Giuliana Rosa Brandi, 21, daughter of Gennaro and Maria Piezza, to Vincenzo Sansone, 30, son of Vito and Maria G. (Giuseppa? Grazia?) Domino on 28 October 1867. The record numb...

Re: DNA Testing

Ordered a SNP test of PF3296 for my husband Nick based on the recommendation of his G Haplogroup subgroup project coordinator. (FTDNA has a sale on currently.) Nick has already been assigned to subgroup M201 based on previous testing.

Re: DNA Testing

Paul, you're fortunate to have taken your line so far back. I've taken my husband Nick's Italian lines (one Italian grandparent) back as far as I can go with civil records and am working now on collateral lines, studying family migrations, etc. After getting Nick's Y-DNA done (Haplogroup G--pretty r...
