Well, its about a year and a half later, still no reply on this one. so i was searching for phillippi's on google, and came across this geneology.com post that i did a year ago. anyhow, i realized i misstyped something on there.
My dad is Michael J Phillippi, born in Florida or California, but im not sure, just out of contact right now. He married a P Smith somewhere in CA or OR, again not sure. Now, i know this isnt alot of info but maybe the smith or phillippi pops up on one of your trees. i also know that Michael J Phillippi's parents, one was from ireland, one was from america. P Smith is the same story, one parent from Ireland, one from america.
