RGS Member Profile:  John Albertini

Joined RGS in 2019

I joined the Writers Group and then RGS in the middle of writing a book about my maternal second great grandfather, Sam Coverly, who was born in Boston in 1793 and kept a journal of his travels. In the Writers Group, I found a community of writers eager to record their own family histories and willing to give feedback and encouragement to others.  At RGS, I found historians and genealogists eager to share their knowledge and expertise, all of which has helped me track down my paternal great grandfather, Biaggio Albertini, who emigrated to Boston from northern Italy in 1873.  Thank you, RGS!
