What started out as just a little curiosity, has spiraled to the puzzle of a life time with some very late research nights (or should I say early morning). Always fascinated by the ancestors I was never able to meet in this life time, I have taken the journey of seeing what I can learn from the documents available. And how happy I become when I locate a large portion of the puzzle and confirm the connection. I can never wait to share the news.
This site includes trees for all branches of my history. And to think, it really only started with information of about 40 people. From the Southern history in TN and VA to those from across the seas in Italy, France and England. Main surnames included are Riani, Cunningham, Simonini, and Bauer for my paternal side. My maternal side includes the surnames of Humphrey, Greenlee, Cassavant, and Davis.
The first ever family reunion is about to take place in 2008, with just about 160 people included from all of the forementioned branches. And we hope those who attend this reunion will be able to provide us with further family information so it may grow.
