      Hi Laura. I believe I’m your cousin Luanne. My dad was Luigi (Louis). I think your mom was Eleanor? I know your post is a few years old but I’ve just come across it today. You are referring to Aunt Mary being from Itri. I always thought our family came from Sicily because Maggiacomo is a Sicilian name (according to Google lol). I’m actually in Rome right now and I am going to spend a few days in Itri.
