U.S. States

The earliest of our ancestors to come to the American colonies were Palatinate Germans who settled in Germantown, Pennsylvania in the mid-1700's before moving on to Monckton Township, New Brunswick in 1766.
Next, the Givans travelled back and forth between the Maritime Provinces and Boston, Massachusetts in the latter half of the 1800's (and Nina Givan ended up migrating west to Salt Lake City, Utah where some of her descendents still live).
Coluccio's, Di Paola's and Valenti's came to New York and New Jersey at the turn of the 20th century.
A.F.B. Burt's family emigrated from Shediac, New Brunswick to Connecticut in 1917 although later daughter Frances moved to Toronto, Ontario in 1929.
