Hello, I’m trying like the dickens to piece together information about my fathers family and I’ve hit a wall! The 3 surnames I know are Pedone, Buonomo and Lombardi from Alvignano and Dragoni. My Nona is Teresa Pedone, she was born in 1941 in Alvignano Italy to Giovanni Pedone (passed away around 1942) and Antoinete Buonomo (passed away in the 1980’s). Antoinete remarried to a Angello Valentino who I don’t know anything about other than they had 4 children and I believe all live here in America now. Unfortunately, I can’t find ANYTHING that helps me piece together my family history and that’s my dead end for her family.
My Nona married my grandpa Pietro Lombardi who lived in Dragoni Italy. He was born In 1935 & he passed away in 1989. His father was named Giovanni Lombardi and his mother was named Orestina Cunti/Conti. I was told Orestina passed away around 1991 in Italy.
My family emigrated to America in 1976 (my father and uncles in tow) from Dragoni Italy and the kids were too young to remember their family. My grandpa passed away and my Nona simply doesn’t remember due to her age and medications.
I’ve searched the records I could find but they weren’t much help. If anyone has or can help me find any information whatsoever, I will be forever grateful! Thank you!
