Possible Lucchetti additions.

About a month ago I got this e-mail from my husband's aunt. It was actually sent to her from a gentleman whos name is Joseph Facchiano. My next step is going to be figure out if and where they fit into the family!

Hi Teri,

I saw your name and I can't help thinking we are related. From what I know, it is a unique spelling.

My mother is Santina Lucchetti. She is the daughter of Frank and Angelina Lucchetti from Cecano, Italy (50 km SW of Rome).

Frank Lucchetti came to America around 1920. He had 2 brothers. Lorenzo (Greensburg, PA) and Sisto (I don't know where he settled).

Perhaps this information will match something in your heritage.

Have a wonderful day!

Ulrich Walti of Ruderswil Switzerland

Born in approximately 1540 in Ruderswil Switzerland, I have just found that this man is Ken Abbott's Great-Great-Great-Great-Great-Great-Great-Great-Great-Great-Great-Great Grandfather. I have found that Ulrich was the owner of the Saw Mill of Schwanden in the parish community of Ruderswil, Switzerland.
Church registers in Ruderswil were not kept until beginning in 1554, so I have not yet found the parents of Ulrich.
I would love any help pointing me in the right direction on where to look from here!


The previous post was supposed to be titled Jorg Martin Dallenbach.

Jarg Martin Dallenbach History

Today I am back to research the Abbott family history. Upon my entering names into genealogy application, I decide to Google a random name, Jorg Martin Dallenbach, and this is what I find...

What an incredible wealth of information!

And the research must come to a halt...for now.

It is that time again, for me to go back to school. I haven't had too much time over my break to seriously work on my family tree, but I looked deeper into the information I recieved regarding Ken's Great-Grandmother Lomax's family information.
I am going to put this all aside for a while and REALLY focus on finishing up school. Then I will be able to devot ALL of my free time to finding the information I am dying to get!

I miss it already! This was such an exciting way to spend my free time!

Aric's Ancestors-Lomax Line

So, I finally opened up my Lomax file that I recieved via e-mail from a J. Lomax in California, and started looking through it. I added Aric's name to see where he fit into all of it, and he is actually a direct descendent of the Thomas Lomax I mentioned in an earlier post. Aric would be the great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great grandson. So the 10th generation.

It has been a while, but I'm back at it!

So, the school term is over for the holidays, and I think I am all settled in for a few weeks off. I am ready to start digging into my research again, and start filling in this tree. My first plan of attack is to go through my Lomax info, and sort it all out, and update Geni as much as I can.

Wish me luck, and I will keep everyone posted!
