POINTers IN PERSON Minutes
Chapter # 10 Central Texas/Austin
Submitted by: Sherry PACELLI Haddox (#4883)
Lin ONOFRIO Brinkman (#1388) opened the meeting on May 27th with 10 present.
The first part of our meeting was a "workshop" with advice given to Patricia COLACINO by Joe MASTRANGELO (#2614). Joe is always so helpful to our members with many good suggestions about genealogy research. He is very knowledgeable and we are fortunate to have him in our chapter.
Joe MASTRANGELO (2614), Jeanie MARSALIA (#4251) and Sherry PACELLI Haddox (#4883) reported that they each had received post cards from Italy informing them about elections for the European Union Parliament, mayor of each of their ancestral towns and president of the different provinces. Joe, Jeanie and Sherry have dual citizenship so they are eligible to vote in Italian elections.
Sherry brought 30 copies of documents (birth, marriage and death) for her PACELLI ancestors from S. Salvatore Telesino, Benevento, Campania that
Tom Priscilla, from Purcellville, Virginia, sent her from the research he's done. Tom's name was changed from PACELLI after his grandfather came to the U.S..
Sherry is extremely grateful and very happy to have this information.
Tom is also going to help Rick COPPOLA, whose grandparents were both from S. Salvatore Telesino, with his research. There's a possibility Rick and Tom may be related because they both have DiPalma's in their line.
The meeting adjourned at 8:45pm.
The next meeting will be June 24th at 6:30pm at Horizon Bay in Round Rock.
