Books, books, books!

The Tyrol, reproduction of 1905 book – (paid link)

I have always been a voracious bookworm! My Amazon Kindle is never far from my reach and my office is lined with one full wall of books. These days I prefer reading eBooks as they are often less expensive and more portable than paperbacks or hardcopy books.

However I do make an exception for one category – anything about Tyrolean/Trentini culture and heritage, and all books produced by the village of Castelfondo (I have three!). During the past eleven years I have collected a small ancestry library containing original volumes (some over a hundred years old!) and reprints of titles now in the public domain. Some of my books are quite valuable and no longer available in print. Others are self-published, written by fellow American Tyroleans.

In my library I have: travel guides from the 1800’s, cookbooks created by Trentini chefs, anthologies of Tyrolean folktales and legends, and political theses discussing the historical conflict of the South Tyrol.

The Tyroleans – (paid link)

My personal Tyrolean library has been compiled from many different sources. I have purchased new and used books on Amazon; found treasured out-of-print volumes on eBay; and toted many a gifted tomb home in my suitcase after visiting the Val di Non. On some trips, I have even left clothes behind in order to accommodate in my luggage the precious books, both purchased and given to me, during my travels.

I also have many selections dealing with genealogical research and DNA testing, to assist with my ongoing research into our family history. And most recently, I have added genealogy fiction to my favorites list (purely for recreational reading, this category does not pertain to our Tyrolean ancestry.)

It is with great pleasure that I maintain our Family Bookstore on the Genetti website; and a joy sharing with you my love of history, genealogy and culture through books!

This past week I added twelve new titles to our Family Bookstore. You’ll find these listings under the following categories:

  • Tyrolean Culture and History
  • DNA Testing and Genetic Genealogy
  • Genealogy Research
  • Genealogy Fiction

I must confess, my new guilty pleasure is the genre of “Genealogy Fiction”! You’ll find loads of new recommendations in this group, all of which I have read in the past year! I loved the seven book series by British author Steve Robinson. Filled with genealogy mystery (and murder), I devoured this series. Usually murder mysteries are not my thing, but throw in genealogy and historical drama – and I can’t resist. And for those interested in war history and historical fiction, I recommend the seven book series by Nathan Dylan Goodwin. I couldn’t put these books down!

The Forensic Genealogist Series
Books 1, 2, 3 – (paid link)

I hope you enjoy my curated collection of books. Perhaps one or two will strike your fancy!

The Descendants of Raffaele and Lucia Genetti

3-Generation Descendant Family Tree of Raffaele and Lucia Genetti

I am happy to announce the second Family Branch Tree has been added to our online shop! A 3-generation descendant tree for the family of Raffaele and Lucia Genetti, this fine art print  features a family portrait and the Genetti coat-of-arms. Thoroughly researched for accuracy, names and dates on the tree have been recently updated using the latest genealogical information.

Raffaele Genetti was the younger brother of Damiano Genetti. His wife Lucia Zambotti was the younger sister of Oliva Zambotti (wife of Damiano). Yes, that’s correct – two brothers married two sisters. So if you are a descendant of either Damiano’s or Raffaele’s family, you are double-cousins with the other branch!

The Family Tree of Raffaele and Lucia Genetti includes their children (with spouses) and grandchildren (with spouses), along with vital statistics such as birth, marriage and death dates.

Printed in rich-colors on high-quality, semi-gloss paper, this beautiful fine art print is available in three sizes, suitable for framing.

Are you one of Raffaele and Lucia’s many descendants? Remember your ancestors with a family tree for your home or as a gift to your children.

New Family Branch Tree Print!

Genetti Family Tree

3-Generation Descendant Family Tree of Damiano and Oliva Genetti

I am so excited to share with you the newest addition to our Genetti Family Shop – Family Branch Tree Prints!

The idea came to me this summer – how cool it would be to incorporate my love of art and my passion for genealogy into a unique item designed specially for our family. The Family Branch Tree Print was born!

The first print in this series is a three-generation descendant tree for Damiano and Oliva Genetti, featuring their children (with spouses) and grandchildren (with spouses). Tree details include birth years, death years, and marriage years for each descendant. Meticulously researched for correctness, the art print also showcases the wedding portrait of Damiano and Oliva (Zambotti) Genetti dated 1886, plus the Genetti Coat-of-Arms that hangs above the doorway of the original Castelfondo home.

Me with my new descendants’ tree for Damiano and Oliva Genetti!

Printed on high-quality semi-gloss paper in rich colors, the print is available in three sizes suitable for framing.

If you are one of the many descendants of Damiano and Oliva Genetti, this fine art print is the perfect addition to your home or a thoughtful Christmas present for your children.

I am currently at work researching and designing future additions to this series, with the plan of creating many Family Branch Tree prints for the various lines of the Genetti family.

New Books in Our Bookstore

We have just added two wonderful new books to our online Family Bookstore. If you’re looking for reading material this holiday season, here are a few selections that might peak your interest.

willowvale

Willow Vale – My Review: Let me say first off that I rarely include novels in our Bookstore. But this little tome tugged at my heart, begging to become a part of our Tyrolean heritage library. Using her grandmother (Nona) as inspiration for the lead character, Francesca Sittoni, the author paints the world of a beautiful young widow with a precocious toddler from the Val di Non in Trentino just after WW I. Her little village in the Tyrolean valley has changed hands from Austria to Italy. After Francesca’s beloved husband dies, she must find another spouse as soon as possible to support herself and her young daughter. She is soon sold off as a war bride, boards a ship to America and joins her new husband in the coal mining region of Wyoming. I don’t want to spoil the rest of the story for you, but let’s say that the tenacious and stubborn Francesca refuses to give up in a new land even when her second husband is no longer in the picture and she fears being deported back to impoverished Northern Italy.

I fell in love with the story of fictional Francesca. Since many of the Genetti family set down roots in Wyoming, working the dangerous coal mines and eking out a living from the dry, dusty land – this was a story that echoed our own journey to America. I think any Tyrolean American will find “Willow Vale” captivating and heartwarming – a wonderful gift for a grandparent or elder. Younger generations will experience an eye-opening glimpse into the struggles of our first generation ancestors as they experienced a new life in America. Find Willow Vale on Amazon: buy now

The Family Tree Guide to DNA Testing and Genetic Genealogy – My Review: One of the latest books to enter the field of genetic genealogy, I found this to be a very helpful guide and a great addition to my growing DNA library. Information is current and as accurate as possible in this ever-evolving science. Most of the material presented can be easily understood by beginners. Advanced concepts are also presented later in the book, but this should not be a deterrent for newbies as they can always come back to these sections after gaining a bit of expertise in DNA testing. I particularly found the chapters relating to surprises in one’s ancestry, such as illegitimacy and adoption, to be extremely informative and sensitive to this topic. Most books about genetic genealogy only touch upon the subject of non-parental events. The author handled this area of DNA testing/genetic genealogy with tact and depth. There are many charts, diagrams and illustrations included in this book. I purchased the ebook version and had no problem viewing the graphic information. I highly recommend this guide as a comprehensive instruction manual for both beginners and advance students of DNA. Find The Family Tree Guide to DNA Testing and Genetic Genealogy on Amazon: buy now

Our Family Bookstore is full of books about the Tyrolean culture, travel guides for Northern Italy and cookbooks featuring our native cuisine. We also have guides on how to write your own Family Legacy and even a few autobiographical books written by Tyrolean Americans. Our new section on DNA Testing and Genetic Genealogy was just added a few months ago. Stop by and browse our Family Bookstore today!
