If you are a genealogy expert, what are your specialties?
I don't claim to be an expert, but enjoy helping people. I will do lookups using Fed Census Records, Ellis Island Ship Manifests, and other available resources. Fees applicable where necessary.
Besides the website Sclafani Family Connection below, I have created additional for various branches of my family, they are as follows:
Curreri-Guirreri Family Connection, Dolce-Dolcimascolo Family Connection, Heptig Family Connection, Reinbolt Family Connection, Staab Family Connection, .. .
For what reason did you start genealogy research?
After the death of my Mother's mother Kathryn Marie Heptig in February of 1999, my family became curious as to whether or not we had any living Reinbolt or Heptig relatives left at all, outside of Long Island, NY or Florida. This started me off on a quest for information, discovering long lost family & uncovering the past. I've brought back many of my family lines to the 1500's, and paternal "Sclafani" line to the time of 1st crusade.
I think we might have a common relative. I am looking for info on my great grandmother: Anna Vitale. She was traveling with Micheal and Margheita Scalafani in the late 1890's to New York. Michele lived at 240 Elizabeth Street.
Diann If you have further info we can communicate by e-mail.
