I became interested in Family History when I tried to find my Italian Grandfather's town, San Pietro Avellana, in Italy. Prior to the internet, I combed over Italian maps, but I was unable to locate our town. So, I wrote the Ministry of Italian tourism, asking them where the town is. A month later, I received a map showing this small town. In 1990, I traveled, with my wife & parents, to Italy to see if this was really my Grandfather's town. I had a copy of a post card, from my Great Grandmother Donata, showing a War Monument in the town plaza, and a prayer card, from my Grandfather Mike (Amico), showing the town's patron saint, St Amico. When we came into town we found the War Monument in the main plaza, and in the parish church there was a chapel dedicated to their patron saint, Saint Amico. I knew I was ‘home'. |
Later, I ordered the Microfilm, through a local Family History Center, and my Niece, Camellia, and I were able to dig up about four generations of Italian relatives that we never knew of previously. The Birth & Baptismal records even gave the street names where they lived in San Pietro Avellana area! Since these moments, I became interested in all my roots.

Aloha e Robert,
I certainly am not an expert in ʻOlelo Hawaiʻi, but I do know a little... and the spellings that you list would not be Hawaiian... in the Hawaiian language there are never 2 consonants next to each other... in your grandmotherʻs name there are nk,gk and jk... you wonʻt find this in any Hawaiian names or words. Also, the Hawaiian alphabet consists of 13 letters: vowels a,e,i,o,u; and consonants h,k,l,m,n,p,w/v and the ʻ - okina.There is no g or j... e kala mai (sorry) that I couldnʻt give you more...
Me ke aloha... best regards,

John Stout ... over the age of twenty-one years, and Rhoda A Cook... under the age of eighteen years, A.N. Cook the father of said Rhoda A Cook has given his written .. to the said marriage.
|volgadeutsch||RE: Rhoda Ann Cook Stout|
Thank you. Rhoda is my husband's Great-grandmother (through Rhoda & John Peter Stout's son, George.
|volgadeutsch||Rhoda Ann Cook Stout|
Dec. 16, 1866 - Mar. 16, 1940
Rhoda first married John Peter Stout in 1883. They had a son George Albert Stout in 1884 and a daughter Cora May in 1886.
Rhoda married John's brother Andrew L. Stout in 1895.
Who are the girls in the photo on the memorial page? Assuming the older child is Rhoda?

Mahalo for adding the page & the transfer...
|Lynda Puakea||RE: Rose Anable|
Judging by the dates of birth and Roseʻs maiden name was Papina, I suspect that Matilda is a sister to Rose. I found some census records with an Adelina Papina as sister to Rose and one with Matilda, listed as sister, living with Rose.
I had the same problem with photos loading sideways or upside down... so frustrating. Do you use an iphone? I asked one of the geniuses at Apple and here is the solution... you know those little icons at the top of the camera screen? I watch the camera one in the upper right. When I want to take a photo in landscape view I turn the phone to that position while I am holding it upright, see the little camera turn to landscape view as well... then lower phone down to take photo. Make sure it goes back to portrait view for photos taken in that position. Has worked fine ever since!

Thank you so much, Robert, for fulfilling this photo request. Appreciate your time and efforts... Merry Christmas!
|Ms Martie M||Contributor page photo|
Your photo here is so very adorable! I had to tell you it put a smile on my face when I saw it on another contributor's page that you left a message for.
How fun! My family had such a photo taken 30 years ago and it is still among my most prized possessions.

Hey do you live in Placer County, CA? Because one of my distant cousins might've died in Auburn, CA sometime in the 1930s or after 1932, and I can't seem to find her death record. So I'm wondering if you lookup obituaries and death records too?
