Immigrant Secrets


Virginia, USA

Tell us a bit about your genealogy/family history journey

My immigrant grandparents died in the 1930s. Except when the 1940 census was released, it turned out they didn’t. And that got me started on the journey to solve the mystery of what happened.

Favorite food or beverage

Irish whiskey

Surnames of interest

Mancini, deFabritus, McEvoy/McAvoy

If you could meet one person from your family tree that died before you were born, who would it be and why?

Favorite place where you’ve traveled
