Early Reseach Done on the Family Tree

Rumors of being related to Gabriel Rossetti. 1980’s


            I recall when I was in college my Uncle Joe told me the story that our family, the Pietrocola family, were related to Gabriel Rossetti and his children Dante and Christina Rossetti. I really was not too sure on who these people were, but my Uncle Joe told the name of a Pietrocola. The name was Teodorico Pietrocola Rossetti. I could not believe that I was able to find my last name in a book because my name is not a common name. It was then and there that I knew I was hooked on family research and genealogy. Later, I would find the mother of Gabriele Rossetti who was Maria Francesca Rossetti, but whose maiden name was Pietrocola. This was the connection to my family that I was looking for, but it was just one piece of a huge puzzle.


            To get an idea how big of a puzzle I was looking at it came down to making my first family tree. I recall I wrote down the few names and birthdates and death dates I had recorded. I started with Gabriele Rossetti, Maria Francesca Pietrocola, her father Nicola Pietrocola, and their cousin Teodorico Pietrocola Rossetti. Then I wrote down the birthdates and death dates of myself, my father, and my grandfather. That was all the information that I had and I started to see the whole picture. I figure that most people lived to their sixties and had children in their twenties and I estimated that number of generations between myself and Maria Francesca Pietrocola and her husband Gabriele Rossetti. I figure that was at least six to seven generations of Pietrocolas between Maria Francesca Pietrocola and me. I thought to myself that maybe it is possible to link my grandfather, Gregorio Pietrocola to Maria Francesca Pietrocola and her father Nicola Pietrocola. Photo of Maria Francesca Pietrocola.
