The timing couldn’t be better to discover the name of Custode’s father and her probable relationship to Vincenzo and Joseph Iacobucci. I’m tuning in later today for a webinar entitled:
“Pointing Fingers at Ancestors’ Siblings – Breaking Down Brick Walls with Collateral Research”
The thrill of yesterday’s discovery is beginning to wear off. I suppose that’s how it goes in genealogical research. “Heavy sigh …” Especially with the Italian convention of naming first born sons after the father’s father – you can see how easy it would be for Vincenzo and James to be Custode’s cousins instead of her brothers but even that discovery should help make the connection to where in Italy she is from.
Another interesting tidbit. I remember Lainey mentioning that there were three Iacobucci sisters she never met. She thought they were spinsters and somehow related to Custode, but she wasn’t sure where they lived – maybe New Castle.
It turns out that the 1940 census shows Vincenzo’s three adult daughters – ages 41, 31 and 28 – living in Derry PA, with their father and brother Joseph. Joseph died of TB in the 1940s. I’m curious about these three Iacobucci women and will have to learn more about them.
