My family was Italian and came over in the early 1900's from Italy to New York and stayed a few years there and moved on to Pittsburgh, PA. Great-grandfather was a talented carpenter but loved to chase women. His family told him to go to the United States because he had been chasing after a married woman and her husband was going to kill him. So he picked a bride and brought her with him. They had many children together in the United States but one day he left her and went back to Italy for 3 years and was running with other women, his wife died while he was in Italy. He was a scoundrel!

We have a pirate in our ancestry! He was French and sailed the waters off the coast of VA. He married a British woman and had many children. I don't want to give out too much info as I'm an aspiring writer and I want to write a story about him.

My parents had a practice of giving each other nicknames. My favorite has always been my father's for my mother. He called her "Hinges" because she was "something to adore (a door)." My mother wasn't quite as inventive. She just referred to my dad as "the man."

One of the neatest things I found out searching our family tree was that my great great grandfather was apeddler who sold elixirs, housewares and such from his horse drawn wagon.

My family on my mother's mother's father's side the McGee's came from Ireland to Emporia Virginia, where someone married an Indian of the Nottaway Tribe. The McGee's arrived with servants and such and were buried in a private grave outside of Emporia, Virginia.
