My paternal grandfather's family lived in North Philadelphia, PA.His father, Joseph Di Giacomo, lived on Hemberger Street, according to his death certificate.Joseph was born on 10 March 1873 and died on 22 June 1929.
He married my great-grandmother Antoinette (I've asked everyone and looked at just about every document and I cannot get her maiden name).Antoinette was born in Brazil on 22 December 1874.They had 7 children: Donato (or "Danny," as he was known, my grandfather), Marshall (Mushy), Marcel, Helen, Alvera, and 2 other children whose names presently escape me.
My grandfather married my grandmother, Philomena (Mamie) Cesario on 26 September 1942 in Philadelphia, PA an had 7 children with her: Mary (Penny), Daniel, Anthony, Linda, Donald (my father), Antoinette (Tony), and Geraldine (Gerry).
I was told that my great-grandfather was from Napoli, Campania but I've yet to see any documentation of this.
If you or someone you know is related, PLEASE email me at Beatles0223@aol.com.I am having great difficulty in tracing the Di Giacomo name.
