    Hello, I am looking for information about Giovanni Digiacomo, born abt 1874 in Acciano. He immigrated to America in abt 1889. He returned to Italy in abt 1908 and met Angelina Aceilio (we are unsure of her surname) and a child, Fiorentina, was born in 1910. We know nothing about Angelina, but would like to know more about her. We also want to know about Giovanni’s parents and siblings.
