Hi Paul, can you believe this just today i checked out the follow ups. Anyway if you remember my grandmother was Maria Pacelli one of Pope Pius's cousins. My grandparents were from Southeren Italy , however my grandmothers family was said to have come from the area north around Rome(thus the birthplace of Eugenio). If you have any information that would be of help to me that would be great. I n my family is what told that my grandmother was one ofhis first cousins.
I am 41 , however my father was 50 years older than me..so we are talking about his mother. I would assume she was born in the late 1800 sometime. Any help you may have would be appreciated. I believe that my granparents were from Gravina(Bari) apulia area of italy..ciao,Joey
