Jenny Rizzo Irwin
Owner and Genealogist
My interest in genealogy began as a teenager when my maternal aunt shared a pedigree chart (a partial image of the chart is at the top of my homepage). I spent the next few decades documenting my maternal lines as far back to Mayflower pilgrims, Dutch settlers in Albany, and French immigrants in the mid-nineteenth century.
My father is a first-generation Italian American. My Italian roots are firmly planted in the Italian regions of Calabria, Molise, and Lazio. Researching my Italian lines back to the mid-eighteenth century, and then forward, has led to connections with cousins all over the U.S., Italy, Canada, and South America!
After 25 years of professional work experience, in 2020 I made the decision to follow my passion for genealogy and established Generations Revealed, LLC. I earned the Boston University Certificate in Genealogical Research in December 2020 and continue to pursue professional development opportunities. In 2021, I joined the team at Stone House Historical Research as a forensic genealogist, where I research military repatriation, probate, and real estate cases.
I look forward to the possibility of working together to discover your family roots.
