In continuing my research on the Trumpi line I realized there weren’t too many Trumpi’s that came to the United States. So, I thought I’d broaden my understanding of the Trumpi family line in hopes that eventually I would discover a connection of these other Trumpi’s and my wife’s Trumpi line in Switzerland. Additionally, this process will broaden my tree allowing for better understanding of DNA Matches. First I looked at the Census Records.

Jacob Trumpi – The other Trumpi family reported in the 1930 Census is Jacob was born in Switzerland about 1860. He also lived at 91 Beekman Avenue in Mount Vernon, Weschester, New York. Living with him is his wife Emma, age 66, and a granddaughter Ethel Trumpi, age 15.

Future Trumpi Activities
I am particularly interested in the Trumpi’s that were born in Switzerland. So, I will look closer at each of them. That includes:
- Barbara Trumpi, b. 1893.
- Fred Trumpi, b. 1870.
- Kate Trumpi, b. 1857.
- John Trumpi, b. 1863.
- Jacob Trumpi, b. 1860/61.
- Frederick Trumpi, b. Mar 1848
- Thomas Trumpi, b. 1842.
- Jacob Trumpi, b. 1839.
- Fred Trumpi, b. 1813.
I may take a look at the children of those individuals. Sometimes the birth and/or Marriage records indicate the birthplace of the individual’s parent. First on that group is Frederick/Fred, born in 1885/86. One of the Census records indicated he was born in Switzerland, although the other ones indicate he was born in Maryland.
There were three Trumpi’s that I not very interested in. Frank was born in Italy, Gabriel in Germany, and George in Lithuania. None of these appeared to have any connection to the Swiss Trumpi’s, so I’ll ignore them for now.
