About Our Family Research

In my search for my ancestry, I have found the following information:
My mother was born Karen M. Fontaine 29-Apr-1949 in Worcester, MA, USA to Maria Mary (Campanale) Fontaine & Wilfred Fontaine. They had two other daughters: Eugenie (the oldest) and Denise (the youngest). Maria Campanale was born 09-Feb-1921 in Worcester, MA, USA to Irene (Masci) Campanale & Vincenzo Campanale. Several other children were born, including, but not limited to, Stella, Josephine, and Benjamin. I believe they had twin boys who died at a very early age. I have no background on Irene & Vincenzo in terms of parents, etc.
My father was born Robert L. DiBenedetto 14-Mar-1940 in Boston, MA, USA to Rose (Earabino) DiBenedetto & Nicholas DiBenedetto. They had several other children, including, but not limited to, Nicholas, and Marie. Rose Earabino DiBenedetto was born 16-Feb-1912, place unknown. Nicholas DiBenedetto was born somewhere around 1900-1910 (approximately), place also unknown. Nicholas was born to Vincenzo DiBenedetto & Gerolima (maiden name unknown). His place of birth is unknown, as is any additional information on his parents. I am not certain of the spelling of Gerolima, but my Father assures me it is correct. :)
I also have some inherited family through my mother's marriage to my stepfather, James L. Jean. I was lucky enough to be raised by such a wonderful man as if I were his very own blood, and have been a part of the Jean family from the age of 5, so I am also very interested in that aspect of my family tree. James L. was born 5-Jul-1947 to Pauline (Houle) Jean & Leo J. Jean. They also had Donna & Sherry in that order. Leo Jean was born 15-Apr-approx 1924. Pauline was born Antoinette Houle and went by the name Pauline because she liked it better. I do not have all of the info on this family with me, so I will update this section at a later date. Leo's parents were Ludger Jean & Margaret Hayes. It is believed that either Ludger's father or grandfather was a Blackfoot Indian by the name of Jeremiah.
Anyone with information regarding any of my family members is encouraged to contact me via email. I'm always looking for new info.
Thank you!
