HI - my name is Debbie Cramer and I am a descendent of the Cramer and Zappa Line and my husband is a descendent of the Schug and Zeug family lines. My research is as current as possible at the time of this posting - there are many gaps as I am not a professional geneologist - I have been working on this for over 10 years as a legacy for our families and for our children to help them in understanding the family lines and their history....hopefully this will help any descendent in our lines in the future and save them some time and trouble when they decide to take on tracing the family lines...all of my sources have been cited and documented as of this posting and most of the information has been either authenticated with verbal information from living descendants or from source documents on file at my residence.
I am currently researching the Frank Zappa Family from Cumberland, Wisconsin. Frank Zappa, Sr. was a descendant of Pio Zappa, descendant of Giusseppe Zappa b. abt. 1770 in Ateleta, L'Abruzi, Italy. I have gotten much information regarding the family from Cumberland and their migration to the Twin Cities, however, going back to Pittsburg, PA and to Italy there are many blanks of information.
If you have any information regarding descendants of Giusseppe Zappa and/or other relatives from Cumberland or Pittsburg you wish to share, please contact me at my email address supplied to the right. We are also interested in finding any documents and interesting stories regarding our family members.
If you would like to post any additional information or correct any incorrect information, please contact me at my email address of firstname.lastname@example.org - I look forward to any information you would like to share....
