Though I am not sure I belong to the Badalamenti family to which the majority on this message board seem to belong, I am a far off decendent of Badalamenti's. My great-grandmother, Mary Balmenti, and some of her siblings used a shorter version of Badalamenti. Her siblings include
1) Philip, who married Artabelle (Artie) and had children by the name Samuel, Phyllis(sp?), Fae, Mary Francis, Joanne, Peggy, and Josephine.
3) Joseph, who married Lucy Sottosanti and had children, including Samuel.
