New Photos on our Website!

Albine (Albert) V. Genetti

Our online family photo collection is growing! This month I received a group of photographs from Dale Genetti. Dale is the daughter of Robert and Geraldine Genetti, and the granddaughter of Albert and Mildred Genetti (all from Hazleton, PA). I have included five of Dale’s pics on our Photograph page along with captions. If you haven’t visited our family website in awhile, why not take a stroll down memory lane! Click here to view Photographs in our Gallery section.

The rest of Dale’s family memorabilia has been added to the online Genetti Family Tree, attached to the listings of her grandparents and parents. To access our online tree, click here and search for the name of a specific person. Or just spend some time browsing our many, many ancestor/descendant listings. We now boast 1,739 names on our family tree – and there are still hundreds more to research and add. Thanks Dale, your contribution to our genealogy project is much appreciated!

And while you are perusing our extensive Photograph page, see if you can spot five more photos that I just added from my own collection – the descendants of my grandparents, Angeline and Leon Genetti. Pictured here is a photo taken at the Genetti family farm, about 1933. This is a tricky picture since, you can’t see many of the faces. Between Dale and I, we were able to identify half of the family members in this photograph. Can you guess who these people are! Click here and scroll down the photo page to see who is in this oldie but goodie!

BTW – did you know that you can click on every picture on our photo page to view an enlargement? Yep, no need to squint – just click to see a larger version with all of the details. Happy browsing!

    Friday Afternoon

    Hello, Louise,

    Love looking at all the photographs.

    Question: Growing up, I never really knew what the relationship were among the relatives. Uncle Pete, (must have been my great uncle, Peter,) lived just a few houses from us. (Elizabeth and Paul smith.) He would have dinner with us every evening, and I was sent over to call him. He was quite old at the time and lived alone. He would get such a kick when I called him for dinner in Tyrolean. Never spoke much. I don’t really know exactly what the relationship was. I know it was through my grandmother, Lucia, but they never talked about the relationships. I’m not really sure what his last name was: either Zambotti or Recla. I’m sure you would have that information and would appreciate your input. I think that the older we get, the more we think about such things.

    Hope you are well.

      I’m sorry Helene I can’t be of help. I don’t know who “Peter” is.

        Louise, check with Ann Marie Shelby D3.1.3 and see if this could be my grandfather Peter Zambotti.

        Nope, I know for a fact that this was my grandfather (Leon Genetti) who is kneeling in the center of the photo, and Dale has identified the man behind Leon as her grandfather, Albert. My father is also in this photo as is Dale’s (both as boys). And since it came from my father’s collection of photographs, I’m sure that most of the people in this photo are immediate family members of Leon and Angeline Genetti (my aunts and uncle).
