My mother was born in Lanciano, Chieti, Abruzzi region of Italy. Her mother was Magdelena DiGiacomo, and she was born in Castel Frentano.I believe she was the youngest of about 10 or 12 and her father, Carmine DiGiacomo died when she was about 8.The only sibling of my grandmothers I remember was a sister, Zia Nice(Bernice?).They ultimately ended up in Philadelphia, Pa. I think there was a brother named Louis who settled in Bronx, N.Y.My 86 year old aunt told me she has cousins who live in Pescada that she used to write to. Unfortunately her memory fades in and out and my mom has passed away so information is limited.
