Genealogy Day

It's the last day of Celebrate Your Name Week!! Genealogy is one of the fastest growing hobbies around. It's a celebration of the people behind the names, our ancestors who came before us. I love researching my family history, to me it's not just names. The names represent people. People who are a part of me. Here are some of the surnames in my ancestry and where they come from. Maybe you know some one with one of these surnames.

Crowley, Finnicane/Finnegan, and Powers from Ireland

Constantineau, Raymond/Raimond, Ploufe, Plantier, Gelineau
Jourdain, Tessier, Bechard, Robert, Lapierre, Danuais, Bourdeau, Janot, Poyer and
Bombardier from Quebec Canada

DiMaggio, Colarulli, DiProspero, and Capponi San Felice Circeo, Italy

Giannetti, Morlani, L'Aurora,and Voleri from Terracina, Italy

Maybe we are distant cousins. How cool would that be??

The Mom of a missionary who is serving in the same mission as my son, has a geneology website. I'll have to hook you up. It's always nice to have another resource!
