I already found a lot of information about my maternal great great grandfather, Jonas Peter Nilsson, on a Swedish website thanks to Hakan Asplund who is a descendant of Jonas (from his other marriage). And via the following World Family Trees: vol 3 tree 2839, vol 77, tree 224 and vol 37, tree 569.

My grandfather was adopted, so we don't know much. I did a DNA test that suggests we descended from a male Tavormina, however. The Catanzaro side is listed partially at

If you have any info that would help me fill in missing dates, names, or places, please e-mail me at Thanks to all who have already contributed.
