I am researching the Galletta, McBeth, Thomas, and Wood families.
My grandfather, Anthony Galletta, came to Philadelphia from Italy
as a young boy around 1910. His parents, Gennaro Giovanni Galletta
and Amalia Ciardi, were born in Sicily and Naples, respectively.
If you think you may be able to help me trace my roots in Italy,
please contact me.
My great-grandmother, Gertrude Wood Thomas, was born in Brooklyn,
New York around 1867. I am looking for any information about her
parents, Loren J. Wood and Mary McKinney.
My great-grandparents, James M. Ross and Mary Forte Ross (Russo)
came over from Italy to Philadelphia in the early 1900s. Any
information on their ancestors would be appreciated.
Geographic areas of interest: Galletta and Ross: Pennsylvania,
New Jersey, Italy; McBeth, Thomas, and Wood: Utah, Kansas, New
York, England, Scotland and Wales.
