Lo Schiavo

Postby mystictyger18 » 27 Jul 2004, 03:49

my great grandmas maiden name was Lo Schiavo...which translates to 'the Slave'...could this mean she may have been a descendant of a slave? She was from Sicily and I know there is some African influence there...if anyone can help me with this please let me know
