    Hi, my name is Larissalyn Minicola. I was recently researching my family history when I came upon this website. I was wondering if it’s possible that these are my actual relatives and if I belong somewhere on the family tree.

      Hi Larissalyn, I’m pretty sure we are related, I sent you an email with some more details.
      Thanks, Chris

    Love the website and appreciate all the hard work.
    Looking at the tree and I have more information if you’re interested.
    I’m Jack Minicola’s grandson (Paul Leonard Minicola’s brother, sister Marie (Freeman of Oshawa)).

    Please let me know,

    Many years ago we went to Roseta, PA to a family reunion–they published a booklet with many of our relatives–I could share with you
    I am able to supply you info on burial grounds for many
    My daughter spotted your website

    My name is Rebecca, granddaughter of Donna Dorris (Minicola) and Bill Dorris, and great granddaughter of Victor and Evelyn. It has been really cool coming across this website and I’m excited to learn more about our heritage!

    I believe we are related. My grandfather was Michael Ronco, son of Ralph Ronco. After that there are a bunch of Domenicos and Pasquales, therefore it gets confusing. The name for me also changes from Ronco to Ronca approximately two generations removed from me.

    My wife’s grandmother is Adele Kathleen Minicola.
    I think they are related. Adele was a daughter of Frederick Fillipo Minicola.
