Hi Sandy,
I have the biography of Pope Pius XII (Eugenio Pacelli), Crown of Glory. According to it, Eugenio's grandfather, Marcantonio Pacilli, was from Onano and then went to Rome because a Cardinal relative needed him there. It says Marantonio had 10 children - the second being Filippo who married Virgina Graziosi and had Giuseppina (which I assume is a girl) and Franceso, then Eugenio (PP XII), then a younger sister Elizabetta. With all those 10 children of Marcantonio that may be how so many of us come from families that say they were related to PP XII. Eugenio may have had more siblings but they are not mentioned in this book.
