St. Frances Xavier Cabrini was the Italian-born founder of the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart and the first United States citizen to be canonized. She was born on July 15, 1850, in Sant’Angelo Lodigiano, Lombardy, Italy, and died on December 22, 1917, in Chicago, Illinois, U.S. She was canonized on July 7, 1946, and her feast day is November 13. Cabrini was sent to the United States by Pope Leo XIII and spent the rest of her life working with Italian immigrants, particularly in New York City and Chicago.

One comment on “Italian Interest Group of the Eastside Genealogical Society First American Saint

  1. Lyndon Kestyus (birth father's name is Gingo, which is Sicilian). Found him through Ancestry DNA in 2018. And he was still alive at 100 yrs old! says:

    I thought I joined this group before COVID struck. You folks used to meet in Bellevue and that’s where I attended your meetings.

    Just lately I attended a zoom meeting on how to get Italian citizenship, which was very interesting. At the conclusion of that mtg, I asked how to get a copy of the Power Point presentation so that I could pursue the same course of action for myself. As of today I have received nothing.

    In summary:
    1) May I please get a copy of said presentation?
    2) Would you please add me, as a full time member, to your team roster for all future correspondence. My cousin and I are developing a Gingo family tree and maybe I can use this group for help?
    3) A couple of weeks ago, I sent my information in for the zoom mtg today and never got any email back for how to log in. What happened?
    4) May I get a list of this groups names and emails?

    Your attention to this matter would be very much appreciated. Thank you
