#1: Hello everyone! Author: tkconsiglio, Posted: Sun Sep 23, 2012 7:01 am ---- Hi everyone!
I'm fairly new on here and thought I would formally introduce myself. First of all, what an awesome forum! Everyone is so kind and eager to help. Even though I have been on here for a few months, I'm just now starting to learn how to navigate around here instead of just posting questions.
I moved to Italy last year in July for a job opportunity for my husband. We both have Italian origins, so I decided to start digging. My goals are: to construct a family tree going back as many generations as I can, locate relatives, and visit the hometowns that are families came from.
So far I have found and visited relatives on my great grand-mothers side. Unfortunately, I have only been able to trace the her parents name. So
this is still a work in progress. I found a 3rd or 4th cousin on here who generously gave me a lot of information on my husbands side and have gone back 7 generations (incredible! I am so grateful!).
Needless to say, I am so happy to have found this wonderful forum that has helped me in achieving my goals! I look forward to learning more as I continue on my quest!
Ciao for now!
Kelly (Miele) Consiglio

You're right about the members here being helpful. It's been a bit quiet because it's summer but things usually pick up in the fall. Hopefully we can help you!

#5: Re: Hello everyone! Author: tkconsiglio, Posted: Fri Sep 28, 2012 8:03 am ---- I'm not sure, could be! We are all from Detroit MI. I may soon find out as I trace our roots! Consiglio is my husbands side. His great grandparents, Alphonsus Consiglio and Rosalia Pellerito immigrated to Detroit in 1910. Alphonsus' parents are Gaetano Consiglio and Providentia Zerilli. I believe they immigrated after, not sure though. I'm trying to learn who their siblings are and go back as many generations as I can.
