I live in the Utica - Old Forge, NY area, and my grandmother's (on my father's side) maiden name was Gaetana Pacelli. My father stated, before his passing, that she (Gaetana) and her husband Lawrence Iacobelli came to the United States through Ellis Island in 1896. Gaetana Pacelli - Iacobelli had stated that she was a cousin of Pope Pius XII. She also had a daughter, my Aunt Rachel Iacabelli, who often stated that we were related to Pope Pacelli, and who had numerous religious articles from the Pope as well as other Cardinals we are supposed to be related to. I am just getting started on researching my geneology, and would appreciate any information or insight into the Pacelli - Yacobelli (Iacobelli - not sure when changed) that anyone might have.
