The Genetti Family Genealogy Project makes history personal. It allows you to experience life through the stories of our ancestors.

Come along with me as we:

  • Research family genealogy from the middle ages through present day
  • Share the culture and history of Tyrol
  • Connect family members throughout the world using social networking and shared stories
  • Offer resources for genealogy research, travel, culture, history and Tyrolean networking
  • Create an ever-evolving website based on reader knowledge and contributions

About the Webmaster:

Louise Genetti Roach is the great-granddaughter of Cosma Damiano Genetti, Oliva Zambotti, Giovanni Battista Marchetti and Catterina Lucia Fellin. All were immigrants from the Val di Non region of  the former Austrian Tyrol. Louise’s “bis nonni” (great-grandfathers), were from the little village of Castelfondo and among the first Tyroleans to immigrate to the United States in the 1870’s.

Louise Genetti Roach with friends, Andrea Cologna and Marco Romano, in front of Casa Genetti, Castelfondo, 2011.

Inspired by the genealogy-based television show “Who Do You Think You Are”, Louise began researching her family ancestry in 2010. Using online resources, conversations with family members, family trees, visits to the Val di Non and microfilm copies of records dating back to the mid-1500’s, she has collected a vast anthology of Genetti genealogy. This website and the ever-growing reconstructed family tree is the culmination of her research. Through website updates and ongoing blog posts, Louise shares her passion of family history and Tyrolean cultural with the goal of connecting Genetti descendants throughout the world.

    Hi Louise, I hope you and your family had a very Merry Christmas. For Christmas I gave my four sisters the Genetti Crest that is inside the glass cube they loved it. Thanks so much for all you do. One of my sisters asked me if I know the meaning behind all the symbols on the crest and I don’t know. I was wondering if you know and could share that information. Again thanks Linda Genetti Applonie
