Pacelli's in Texas/Related to Pope Pius
Posted by: Giovanni Pacelli Date: May 28, 2001 at 13:29:52
  of 215

My line of the Pacelli family comes through Montreal (I'm the brother of Nicolas who posted here in 2000). My father Nicola was third of 6 children of Giovanni Pacelli and Maria Rosa Fazzone in Caiazzo Italy. My dad and his siblings moved to Montreal in 1950's one by one. My dad moved to Texas in 1968 (where he had 3 children)and one sister Antionette moved back to Caiazzo. 3 brothers Francesco, Pietro (father of Johnny Pacelli of Mtl who posted here too), and Giuseppe (Joe) are still in Montreal with sister Grace. Great grandfather (father of Giovanni) was Francesco Pacelli who came through Ellis Island and returned to Caiazzo at some point.

My father and other family told me my grandfather was a cousin of Pope Pius XII - not sure how close...
