|In 1976 I began research of our family history and genealogy, back then as an assignment in a college literature class and currently continue this search as a very rewarding hobby. Our Sicilian roots have been a challenge, as the resources in Italy and Sicily where our family roots began have limited access here in the US. It is rewarding and interesting as each piece of our family history, where it may be a birth date or distant relative that I happen upon or have gathered from research has added valuable information to our family history as much as it adds growth to our family tree. Also, as our family grows back in time with our research into the past it also expands into the future.And so, our family tree will forever keep branching off to yet another new limb and important part of our family history. |
Our family surnames of Zichichi, Messina, Pace, Underwood, MacIvor and MacIver have been challenging. Yet this medium, the internet has opened many doors. For those of you who are in search of these or the other surnames posted in our family tree please feel free to drop us note.
For our family members please be patient as I build the Tree with the best of accuracy. From witch we have gathered much of our information from all of your help and input, and for this help I thank you all dearly.
