I have just begun my research into our family tree. My grandmother was a Tesatore and came to America when she was 12 years old. Her family came from Italy. She had told me many years ago, in the sixties, that she remembered her grandmother in Italy and that her grandmother was from Germany and was a German princess. I am trying to trace our roots back to find out who her grandmother was.
We are having a reunion in July and I am hoping to have some information about our roots, and to find out if indeed her grandmother was a German princess and who she was. I did try to search back through the library but to no avail. I am trying to trace back to her grandmother and her grandmothers family. If her grandmother was German did her roots originate from England and Queen Victoria's family? No one in the family had heard this story from my grandmother, but they had been told that their roots had come from Italy and Germany. How do I go about searching back to find out where we came from?
