Re: Joseph DiGiorgio from New York

In Reply to: Joseph DeGeorge from New York by Melanie of 48

I am the granddaughter of a Joseph DiGiorgio who lived in Greenwich Village in NYC. He died in December of 1943 so I never met him. I am hoping some of this family information may link my family to one of yours. This is what I know. My grandfather Joseph DiGiorgio married Lucia Catoggio, who was probably born somewhere in Basilicata, and they raised nine children in Greenwich Village. The names of the children were Peter, Pauline, Catherine (my mother), Anthony , Rocco, Frank (called Chickie) Daniel, and Doris. There was another son named Frank who died at 8 or 9 years old -- hit by a truck I think. This family may have links to the Privinzini and Santangelo families as well. And there was a relative named Portia who lived in Boston and came to NY to sing at all the family weddings. And, Melanie, I am excited by the Rochester link because I know we have DiGiorgio relatives in Rochester, though I never met any. My Aunt Doris, the youngest in that family, was probably the last person in contact with the Rochester branch. Unfortunately she passed away a few years ago. I would greatly appreciate any pictures of Joseph DiGiorgio since I have only one -- as an older man. Thanks,
