About Me

KAK.Fall.2011Thanks so much for visiting Trovando Famiglia. My name is Kalen Kingsbury. I started researching my husband’s family tree in 2012. My husband, Rick George, knew very little about his father’s side of the family growing up. In fact, Rick was 20 before he learned from his father that he had Italian ancestors. My father-in-law didn’t know much about his Italian relatives because his parents divorced in the early 1930s when he was young. Intrigued by the mystery, Rick began researching his family tree. He also had his DNA tested. EUREKA! (did I mention Rick grew up in California?) He found a match who was likely to be a third cousin. Through Terry we’ve learned a lot about the Giorgio family and have even met a few of our long lost relatives including a half aunt that Rick never knew he had. This blog is our way of sharing what we’ve learned about Ciro, Adriano, Pasquale and Romualdo Giorgio and their descendants; a way of keeping their stories alive. We hope it will help us find more Giorgio descendants and perhaps encourage you to search for yours. Ciao!

  2. I am from New Castle PA. There was a family surnamed “George” here; my Mother had said we were
    related to them, or her aunt my marriage was, and that they were Italian. I don’t know anything further because I haven’t researched that family as of yet. I also have many similar surnames in my family that I’ve seen here on your site: Iacobucci, Frabotta, and others. All from Roccaraso or surrounding towns. But these names are my paternal branches; the Georges, whether related to me directly or by marriage, would be my maternal branch. It’s possible they were from Reggio Calabria if directly related to me.


    • Thanks for leaving a comment. It’s possible one of the wives of one of the 4 Giorgio brothers who came to America was from the same town that you mention- Roccaraso. I’ll take a look at things tonight or tomorrow when I have more time.
      If you’ve done any DNA tests we could see if there’s a match. My husband has tested with Ancestry and 23 and me. One of our older Italian relatives has also done a DNA test on Ancestry.
      More soon and if you want to communicate via email you can reach me at kalenkingsbury@gmail.com
