Revised List of People and Places in My Tree

This week's writing prompt is to update any old posts you feel deserve it. There are actually several old posts I'd like to revise and update, but the most nagging one of all was this one from back in February. I wrote the original in a bit of a hurry and left out some necessary details, like specific towns, communities, etc. For one, I've been contacted by people sure that we were related several times because of that post, only to have hopes dashed when I mentioned the specific places where my family was from. I also wanted to include more surnames in this one. I know there are a lot on this list, a WHOLE lot, but my thinking is that since I mention all these lines on this blog, I should include them all. Half of my paternal lines are missing however because my grandmother's family continues to be my biggest brick wall (I really need to go to Italy and research that bunch!).
