Hi. I'm not personally a D'Alesandro Family member (except via only an oblique connection, that's not by blood), but would like to inform anyone who isn't already aware of the prominent Baltimore D'Alesandro family.
Nancy D'Alesandro (now Nancy Pelosi - the new U.S. Speaker of the House) was born on 26 March 1940, in Baltimore's "Little Italy," to Annunciata and Thomas J. D'Alesandro, Jr. He later became the three-term mayor of Baltimore and a five-term U.S. congressman. In addition to daughter Nancy, Thomas Jr. and Annunciata had five sons. One of them is Thomas J. D'Alesandro III, who also served a term as mayor of Baltimore. His wife is the former Margaret Piracci (step-granddaughter of one of my maternal aunts, the former Helen M. Lewandowski, Margaret's grandfather having been my late uncle Vincent Piracci).
Hoping some of the above will prove of use to someone.
