To Tessa & Peter:
Oh I know so well about that naming & re-naming if a previous child passes on. My own father went through that. Yes, Tessa the next Guiseppe was of the same parents.
As for the Guiseppe(s) which in America became Joseph, there are 2 Josephs in 1 generation and about 4 in the next. That part of the family refers to the immigrant Guiseppe as Joseph (Americanized), while I refer to him as Guiseppe. When he came to America he was Guiseppe, and when he died there he was Joseph.
Peter, I know what you mean about the other names to separate them out, oddly enough the family doesn't do that, but I've known other families that have.

I know that this is (probably) a not important thing, but I noticed that many of you usually write the italian name Giuseppe as Guiseppe: it's completely wrong. The pronunciation of these two words is very different and, above all, no one of your ancestor was never called in that way.
Lucap...I know that it was most likely a typo on my part, although consistent. I agree the reversal of the letters WILL give a different pronunciation. I'm sure we'll all try to be a little more conscientious about it in the future.
