Progenitors Lists

Sub-projects of the Sicily project may contain a progenitors list. This list is intended to include the earliest ancestor with the various family names found within that place. The basic criteria for being included in a progenitors list are the following:

  • born in this place
  • lived in this place
  • married in this place
  • died in this place
  • had a child that was born in this place

Every earliest profile with the various family names (or sometimes when a family name is not known) should belong on at least one progenitors list. If a place name is not mentioned specifically in their profile anywhere you should include them in the progenitors list of their spouse or earliest descendant is on.

In some cases there may be multiple progenitors listed for a family name because we have not been able to link them to an earlier common ancestor, or because they may actually be different families using the same family name.

Speculative members of the progenitors list are also acceptable as a way of keeping track of loose ends. For example, Giovenco and Gariti are two names common in Altavilla Milicia. If I find someone in an Altavilla Milicia family in Chicago that married a Giovenco or a Gariti I would add this Giovenco or Gariti to the Altavilla Milicia progenitors list because the odds would be high that the Giovenco or Gariti is also from Altavilla Milicia. This is a way of keeping track of loose ends in the tree and to find people that need to be researched further to see if they connect to the rest of the Giovenco or Gariti family. They can then be removed if they connect to a Giovenco or Gariti already on the progenitors list or in some cases removed and added to the proper progenitors list within a different Sicilian commune.

A note should also be included with each one indicating the criteria they met to be on that list. For example someone from Marineo may be on the Altavilla Milicia progenitors list because their great-great-grandson lived in Altavilla Milicia and this would be difficult to see at a glance and would explain that they are not on that list in error.
