    Hello,
    I would like to receive information regarding the family name DeAgazio, specifically I found out that the family name was originally D’Agazio and about at the beginning of the past century became De Agazio. Therefore, I would like to know when the name changed, who changed it and, if possible, why it changed.
    Thank you for your kind reply,
    Ombretta
