Hi Antoinette, You're very welcome. And here's a bit more. The family name Vallaro fits in there somewhere. Also, my grandmother had a sister named Giovannina (aka Jennie)....that's how they Americanized that beautiful Italian name in those days.
My grandfather's mother's maiden name was Vallaro, but she was also a cousin to the Pacelli's....through marriage, I think. She also had a brother Louis (Luigi), but both he and aunt Jennie were just talked about. They had passed away when I was an infant/toddler. But as far as first names go...there was: Madeline (my mother), Donato, Antonio, Maria, Francesco,John and Rosalind....the last two were born in the '20's. Sometimes first names are important because in their time, children were named, first after the husband's father or mother, then the mother's father or mother, and then sisters and brothers.
Take care...Joe T
