"After being processed on Ellis Island, Giuseppe worked his way across America, eventually settling near Rosalia's father in Pittsburg, California, on the east side of the San Francisco Bay Area. After four years, he earned enough money to send to Italy for Rosalia and their daughter, who was born after he had left for the United States. Giuseppe hoped that his five sons would become fishermen. DiMaggio recalled that he would do anything to get out of cleaning his father's boat, as the smell of dead fish nauseated him. Giuseppe called him "lazy" and "good-for-nothing." DiMaggio did not finish his education at Galileo High School and instead worked odd jobs including hawking newspapers, stacking boxes at a warehouse and working at an orange juice plant.".

The milenary (thousand year celebration) for Romsey Abbey included church services on three succeeding days, the first, the 25th of June, 1907 included a visit by H. R. H. Princess Louise and the Choristers of Romsey Abbey (with a sermon by the Bishop of Bristol) , the second day included music by the Royal Chapel of S. George's Windsor, and the third day (June 27th) , included a plain song service by the Choir of S. Alphege, Southwark. Also in the book is a potted history of the abbey, and the lyrics and sheet music for the event. "Our story covers ten centuries of English History. What vast changes have taken place in those thousand years! Languages have died out. Nations have risen and fallen. Empires have been founded and have passed away...." "Romsey Abbey is a parish church of the Church of England in Romsey, a market town in Hampshire, England. Until the dissolution it was the church of a Benedictine nunnery. It is now the largest parish church in the county since Christchurch Priory is now in Dorset. The church was originally built during the 10th century, as part of a Benedictine foundation. The surviving church is the town's outstanding feature, which is all the more remarkable because the abbey, as a nunnery, would have been less well financially endowed than other religious establishments of the time.".
