Creative Endeavors, Part 3

Giuseppe Genetti (Uncle Joe – Damiano’s brother). His portrait has been colorized using the amazing MyHeritage Colorization tool. Find this free tool on our new Collezione page.

During this time of social isolation, let us make the best of a difficult situation. Perhaps this can be a period of quiet reflection for you. Or maybe time at home offers freedom to learn a new skill or start an online business. With this in mind, I have added a new page to our Main Menu: Collezione (this means “collection” in Italian).

Collezione is a curated list of free resources ranging from Genealogy to Travel to Music – and much more. Enjoy a production of Hamlet presented by The Globe Theater. Tour haunted towns in the United States. Upload your digital black and white photos and magically colorize them! Or start a meditation program with Oprah. I have put together a wide range of free and interesting resources for your entertainment and educational enrichment.

As long as we are in this state of uncertainty, I will continue to add resources to this page. Stop by often to check-out new links in Collezione.

Be smart, stay safe!

Back home

StatsFeb172015I’m back home in Santa Fe, New Mexico after our excursion to Australia. As always, visiting another culture offered a new view of the world and confirms just how much people are alike. I am so grateful that my husband and I are able to travel and make friends wherever we go.

This trip gave us many opportunities to chat and establish friendships. Along the way we conversed with people from Austria, Germany, France, Spain, Brazil, Canada, New Zealand, the USA, and of course, Australia. We also discovered many Italians in Australia on work visas. It was a joy to strike up a friendly conversation with someone from Milan, Verona or Bolzano, ask them about their home town and share our own travels in Italy. I now have several new friends on FaceBook who originate from different points of the globe. Who would have thought a decade ago that we could post our thoughts on a website and have comments left by friends living in five different countries! Amazing!

While I was away, our website was busy. The stats show many new visitors, as well as return viewers, who have checked-out The Genetti Family Genealogy Project during the past six weeks. Thank you to all new family members from around the world who have stumbled upon our little website. During my trip I received emails from two distant cousins and one 2nd cousin through the Genetti Family website. Over on, I’ve had two close DNA matches with people related to me through Genetti ancestors – one I believe to be a third cousin. For a genealogy geek, this is exciting stuff! Now it’s time to get down to work, dig into my archives and find out how each person fits into our family tree. So Marcel, Ann R., Brian, Mary and Ann T. thank you for writing and I feel privileged to be a part of your genealogy journey. I will be emailing you individually with the results of my research. This info will then be added to the online Genetti family tree.

Now if I can just get over this jet lag …

The Genetti Family Genealogy Project was featured today on the GeneaBloggers’  website: New Genealogy Blogs 23 August 2014. Click here to see the post!

GeneaBloggers is described as “the ultimate site for your genealogy blog”. The site has a huge index of family genealogy blogs and also offers resources for bloggers. It’s a great way to get the word out about our website.

And speaking about getting the word out, you can help the The Genetti Family Genealogy Project grow by emailing the website address and FaceBook page to other family members. The goal of our project is to share our family history and culture, and connect with Genetti descendants throughout the world. To do that we need participation! So tell one and all to visit, subscribe to our blog posts and “like” our FaceBook page. We are also looking for family photos, stories and recipes to post on the website. Mille Grazie!
