From the historical and fascinating Italian region of Venice emerged a multitude of noble families, including the distinguished Dimaggio family. Although people were originally known only by a single name, it became necessary for people to adapt a second name to identify themselves as populations grew and travel became more frequent. read more
The Italian Bruno surname has a few possible sources. It is a patronymic name created from the originally Germanic personal name Bruno. It evolved as a nickname from the Italian word “bruno,” meaning “brown,” referring to the hair color or perhaps complexion. It may also have evolved as a habitational name from a place name, such as Bruno, in Asti province. read more

Friends of Isola delle Femmine would like to thank Steve Lucido for the following information on Families from Isola. Please keep in touch with us during this stay at home time we wish everyone good health in these difficult times. Visit us on our Facebook page.
I’d like you introduce you to Girolama Maria Caterina Lucido. She was born in Capaci on March 26th, 1796 to parents Antonino Lucido & Rosa Bruno. Girolama was a levatrice (midwife). I first find her on record when she delivered Salvatore Lucido in Isola delle Femmine in 1822. I have attached the civil birth record for Salvatore’s birth. It notes that Girolama lives in “Tonnara Isola delle Femmine” and she is 28 years old (actually she is 26). From this day forward, she gave birth to most all Lucido’s in Isola delle Femmine until just before her death in 1850. Her final documented delivery of a Lucido was for Rosario Lucido in November of 1849. Girolama passed away less than a year later in September of 1850 at the young age of 54. Another interesting note about Girolama. She married Giuseppe Di Maggio, the brother of Joe DiMaggio’s 2nd great grandfather Gaetano DiMaggio. In fact Gaetano Di Maggio married Giuseppa Lucido and Sister Maria Di Maggio married Salvatore Lucido. It was common at the time for siblings to marry siblings. However, in these cases all of the Di Maggio siblings married Lucido who were more distantly related. Girolama Lucido and her husband Giuseppe Di Maggio had nine children from 1812-1839. Her granddaughter Rosa Di Maggio married Gaetano Lucido (I recently posted a large family photo of them and their descendants). One last point of interest. Girolama’s brothers Francesco, Salvatore and Marco Lucido and their children settled San Vito lo Capo. So most all San Vito lo Capo Lucido today are descendants of Girolama’s brothers. Rest In Peace Girolama. Many in this group owe you a debt of gratitude for bringing their ancestors into this world.
