|This website is dedicated to my daughter, Patricia Angelique Abel-Lassan, so that she may know where she comes from and who comprises her history.I'm Angela Denise Abel. We live in the Ohio Valley area, but we have relatives all across the country.My family has only been in the country since the turn of the century.This is including the maternal and paternal sides of myfamily. My mother's family is from Sicily, Italy.My father's family goes back to Austria and the surrounding area.|
My daughter's father's family is more complicated.His paternal side is from Hungary.However, his maternal side is pure "mutt", so to speak.All-American mix of many different ethnologies!All my great-grandparents have died, so it's become difficult to find out about where they and their parents came from.My grandparents don't remember much, and it wasn't talked about a lot, or written down.This is why I decided to begin working on my family tree.
The names on my paternal side include ABEL, LATZ, LEITHE, YODERS.They lived in WV, PA, OH, and LATZ's came from around Austria.The names on my maternal side include DACQUISTO, D'AMATO, MACHI.They lived in WI(mainly Milwaukee area), and were mostly from Sicily.The names in my daughter's father's side includeLASSAN, HORVATH, FORD, DARRAH, BOWERS.They lived in WV, Pa, OH, and LASSANS came from Hungary.
