Gallo World Family History and Genealogy Links

We provide the usual format for a genealogy research page, but what we hope to mainly accomplish here is to provide
genealogy information that directs the researcher specifically to the Gallo name.

Genealogy research usually hits a "brick wall" above the great great grandparent level. Beyond that point we are talking
history. So we also attempt to build the Gallo Family history beyond the year 1865. Here we need your help. At first we will
accept any and all scraps of Gallo history and post them here in their raw form. After that...who knows...someone out
there with writing scholarship can put it all together in an authoritative story form. Disclosure: We take what you give
us and work with it. If we are to have any credibility, please furnish sources whenever you can.

If you are looking for answers to genealogy questions about your family, post a message in our Facebook Group.

Also, have you ever been able to correctly state family relationships, like, "second cousin, once removed?" Click here
for a
Gallo Relationship Chart that does all the work for you.
