Posts from his food blogs—Justin Wants to Feed You and Tin Foil Toque-–and from this one were Editor’s Picks on Open Salon. Justin’s capital-F Family history blog, Mafia Genealogy, was recognized as a most intriguing new genealogy blog in 2016 with a GeneaBlog Award.
Justin is the administrator of a 19,000+ member group on Facebook, “All transmen know each other,” which he runs as a tiny digital fiefdom.
He is an avid Mafia genealogist, active on Wikitree. His research into the Mafia families of his ancestral hometown has led to the completion of his first book, Corleone: A Postcolonial Mafia History, for Brill Publishers.
