As some of you know I have been looking at the censuses for the Truxton Circle area for what now seems forever. Anyway, once at a Truxton gathering I was asked about Italian families. For the most part I have been finding lots and lots of German and Irish immigrants and 1st generation Americans but for the most part, no Italians. Not until now. In 1910 there was at least two Italian and Italian-American families. But not a whole lot. There are more Russians than Italians. Fewer Swedes and Finns. Basically, still the Irish and Germans still dominate in the “not from here” category. The biggest ethnic group in 1910 Truxton by far African Americans.

No Italian immigrants… which explains why you can’t get a decent slice of pizza in DC! – AI
