Dear Shirley,
My name is Larry DiGiacomo. I am Lauren DiGiacomo's father. My grandfather, Angelo DiGiacomo, came from Castiglione di Caroville in the late 1800's and settled in what is now Krebs, Oklahoma. He was a coal miner there and when the mines closed down, he moved to Akron, Ohio in the late 1920's. I was born in Akron in 1935 and lived there until 1962 when I moved to California. There are many Carovillese people in Akron. In fact, there is even a Carovillese club there. My mother's sister also married a DiGiacomo who was from Hayleyville. His name was Steve DiGiacomo, but his family dropped the "Di" from the last name. There are many DiGiacomo's from Krebs, and we may be related if one goes back far enough. DiGiacomo was quite a common name in that part of Italy. I was just back in Krebs a year ago last summer when I visited my Aunt who lives there. I may go again next summer because I really enjoy the area and our Italian heritage is still evident there.
Hope to hear from you soon,
Larry DiGiacomo
