Elusive Ancestors…

That final ProGen assignment is done. I am taking a day or so before I jump into something new and I am procrastinating my final critiques of my peers. If you have been reading for a while you have probably learned that I like to procrastinate and I like rabbit holes.

While procrastinating that final ProGen assignment I did a deep dive into my Italian Ancestors (that right there should tell you how  much procrastination there was). I have been looking for the elusive last name of my 2X Great Grandmother on my Moro line.

If you read this Learned something new… post and you will see how I arrived to this place. I am not sure of the search terms I used to come up with this record but look what I found.

My 2X Great Grandmother, Chiara DiLudovico and Concenzio Moro, my great uncle.

I need to do a bit more research as I know very little about when Aliens were held for special inquiry and I am hoping there are records. One thing that I love about European women is that they traveled under their maiden names.

I am searching for a class or an institute on Italian Genealogy because I think that is what I need to get further into the process, but I finally did it I found the maiden name.

My 2X great grandmother’s name was Chiara DiLudovico Moro and it explains how my grandmother got her name.
