My name is David Desiderio. I am looking for a detailed genology of my family. I do know that my grandparents immigrated to this country from Abruzzi in the early 1920's and that many others arrived before that all settling in the Philadelphia area. Many entered the clothing business. My grandfather, Geronomia (later, Geremia) arrived about 1924 to join other members of his family in the tailoring and retail business. His brother,my great uncle, Pietro, owned the Superior Clothing factory in Northeast Philadelphia until his death in the early 1980's. All together, my grandfather had five siblings, Pietro, Rose, Rita, Anthony and one more that escapes my memory. My grandfather married Armedia DiGiorgio in 1925 and they gave birth to my father, Vincent Camillo, in July, 1926 and my uncle, Joseph, in March, 1928. My grandfather died in 1979. My father graduated from Southern High School in Philadelphia, the University of Pennsylvania and Hahnemann Medical School. He practiced medicine for over 40 years before his death in March, 1999. He married Emidia D'Ignazio and they had five children, Stephen, Vincent, myself, John and Mark.
