Tim- I am one of your distant cousins in Texas. My mom is a Cigainero. Her stepdad was one of the brothers who wrote the family history.
As my grandad, he told me stories of the family and its history from my earliest days -I was always the odd child, sitting and listening to the adults rather than playing outside!
Rest assured, as far as my grandfather was concerned, the name does translate to black swan.
Remember that G.B. Cigainero spoke no English - thus the common misspellings of surnames.
I just found this site so excuse the late posting.


Hi mwb
I'm familiar with the book Floyd and Robbie researched and wrote. I'm a close blood relative to them. (their mother was my grand mothers sister) But in response to the "Black Swan" reference Yes in Italian it does translate, but I'm asking if it has a different meaning in the Fruili language since it is very different from Italian. Come look me up on FB we can talk more

Topic: Right-hander, Left-hander or both?

I use a fork or spoon left handed...throw a ball right, but a frisbe left. Equally well with a tool or hand gun, long gun, right only. Guess I haven't made up my mind if I'm a lefty or righty

I do know this though.....Left handed people are the only ones it their right mind Angel

I took it to mean that people must decide for themselves if there is a "after life" ....heaven...hell...reincarnation...or nothing...take your pick

Mary, I see the humor. Kind of like military intelligence or jumbo shrimp :)

I totally disagree with this quote. The Lord made us individually and unique.

Besides think about how boring this world would be if we all thought alike.
