I knew they had a brother named Giacomo.  He was in the obituaries of all the boys as "surviving brother".  Never in the census records.  I finally did a search on all Marianis in San Francisco and found not too many.  Some were not related at all.  Some were, but how?

I made index cards of all and the only one that didn't make sense was Giacomo.

So I did a google search on the word.  It means, "James".  The James in the census files is Giacomo.  One in the same.  Why did I not think of this?  Now I have to start over with all the James info I found and add it to Giacomo's file.

All because a rose isn't necesarily a rose; it could be a rosa.
