THE CARUSO FAMILY TREE

CHARLES JOSEPH CARUSO Born: MARCH 4,1856 LOUSIANNA-DIED: DECEMBER 15,1958

THIS PICTURE OF CHARLES WAS SENT BY HIM TO HIS GRANDDAUGHTER HELEN CARUSO (BISHOP). THE POEM ATTACHED READS;
"EVERYTIME YOU SEE THIS PICTURE
SETTLE IT IN YOUR MIND
TELL TO THEM WHO MAKE
ENQUIRES,TIS MY GRANDFATHER
LOVING AND FAR AWAY
LIVING AND LOVINGLY
ASKING ABOUT ME
YOURS TRUELY, YOUR GRANDDAD, CHARLES"

WHERE TO BEGIN

THE REASON FOR BEGINNING THIS PROJECT WAS AT FIRST A SELFISH ONE. I HAD BECOME A GRANDMOTHER,(EVEN THOUGH I TOLD MY KIDS I WAS TOO YOUNG TO BE A GRANDMOTHER) AND MY LAST GRANDPARENT HAD PASSED AWAY A FEW YEARS AGO..IN SHORT I WAS FEELING MY OWN MORTALITY. I WONDERED WHAT MY GRANDKIDS WOULD REMEMBER ABOUT ME, WHAT THEY WOULD TELL THEIR KIDS AND WOULD THEY EVEN CARE? THE MORE I THOUGHT ABOUT IT THE MORE I THOUGHT OF MY OWN ANCESTORS AND THE MORE INTERESTING AND REAL THEY BECAME TO ME.

I PRESENTED THE FAMILY WITH MY IDEA OF RESEARCHING THE FAMILY TREE WHICH RETURNED MIXED REPLIES FROM,"WHY THE HELL DO YOU WANT TO KNOW ALL THAT FOR?" ..COLORFULLY PUT TO ME BY GREAT AUNT GERTRUDE," WHY DO YOU CARE?" TO, "HOW INTERESTING...LET ME KNOW IF I CAN HELP." THE PROJECT HAS RESULTED IN A FEW FAMILY MEMBERS BEING ANGRY WITH ME FOR REASONS I WON'T GET INTO, BUT FOR THIS I APOLOGIZE AND MAINTAIN THAT I MENT NO HARM.

I DON'T PRETEND THIS IS A SIMPLE TASK. I HAD TO DECIDE WHERE TO START AND HOW TO KEEP CONTROL OF WHAT PROMISED TO BE A GROWING MONSTER ONCE I BEGUN. I DECIDED TO FOCUS SPECIFICALLY ON THE CARUSO LINEAGE. I THEN HAD TO FIND A STARTING POINT. THAT WAS THE EASY PART. I DECIDED BY THE LOOKS OF THINGS MY AUNTS, UNCLES AND MY OWN FATHER HAD FINISHED HAVING CHILDREN AND I KNEW THE YOUNGER COUSINS WERE STILL PRODUCING THEM SO THE OBVIOUS PLACE TO BEGIN WAS WITH THE LAST COMPLETED GENERATION LINE.

THE PROJECT BEGAN AS A RESEARCH OF THE JOSEPH JOHN CARUSO FAMILY HISTORY BUT, AS I DISCOVERED COUSINS A NEW INTEREST DEVELOPED WITHIN THE FAMILY AND WITH THEIR HELP, THIS TURNED INTO A FAMILY PROJECT.

THIS SITE WAS NOT BUILT WITH THE THOUGHT IN MIND TO HURT, BRING UP BAD MEMORIES OR TO INVADE THE PRIVACY OF ANYONE.. IF AFTER SEEING THIS SITE U WISH TO HAVE YOUR NAME AND IMAGE REMOVED PLEASE LET ME KNOW AND YOU WILL BE IDENTIFIED AS DAUGHTER OR SON AND YOUR NAME AND IMAGE WILL BE REMOVED..WHEN I BEGAN THE SITE IT WAS WITH THE HOPE OF BRINGING OUR LARGE FAMILY TOGETHER NOT TO CAUSE ANY PROBLEMS..
