My family and I would like to wish everyone a safe and Merry Christmas! There is nothing more important than family. I have been blessed to be born into a very close family. Even though we are spread across the country, there is nothing that any of them would not do to help another that needs help.
I have also been blessed by having such an interest in my Family Tree. I have found, literally, hundreds of relatives that I never knew existed. Unfortunately, some of them had passed away before I discovered them. Fortunately, many of them are alive and well. I have contacted quite a few of them personally (Hi, you don’t know me, but we’re related….can you say awkward?). Every one was skeptical, but they all gave me the opportunity to prove it. I have stayed in close contact with a few, and I even met a cousin on my last trip to NJ (hi Julie Ann Alacci Petrellese). Next summer I hope to visit my brother in NJ, and while there go to PA and meet the Lucarelli side of my family.
I am posting a few photos of past Christmases (I know, the spelling looks weird, but I looked it up!). I wanted to post photos of other family’s Christmas, but this was all I had (hint, hint). Again, I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas!
