Hello, forum people. While I am waiting to see if I receive a return e-mail from the records office in Casteldaccia, I thought I would post a question about the origins of the name DIGIACINTO.
I have found that the name GIACINTO is found in more than one province in Sicily, but the name DIGIACINTO occurs mainly in the Palermo province. Family history has said that an ancestor was rewarded for his services to "the monarch of the day" by being made a member of the House of A'Osta, thus earning the right to add DI to GIACINTO. Has anyone heard of the House of A'Osta or have any history of a king associated with that house?
