I have been researching my family history since I was seven years old. I would sit with my grandmother and enjoy the stories she told me as we looked at her family photographs. I have a diverse background of Italian-Sicilian, on my father's side and Russian-Romanian-Polish on my mother's side. I recently found long lost cousins in Sicily and even a town with my maiden name Timpone.
I am the keeper of the memories in my family. Keeping our history alive, keeps our ancestors in our hearts and minds.
