Laura, I found "WORLDBOOK OF PATAFIOS" I got about 1991ish, and out of 56 pages of bull trying to get me to buy something, 1 page lists what countries we are in and the other 5 pages lists Patafio families by name. There is nothing about ancesters
There is an AUGUST M. PATAFIO, 70 Partridge Cir, Casselberry, Fl 32708.
Also 3 families in Calif, 1 in Conn, 2 in Fla, 1 in Georga, 5 in Jersey, 28 in NY (including LI, Staten Island), 2 in PA, 1 in SC, 11 in Canada, 3 in Australia, 19 in Italy (most in Scalla).
I cannot for the life of me find the coat of arms...must be packed away in the garage...will keep looking.
I send these web pages to my Brother...he may get involved and probably knows alot more than I do...we were much more involved with my Mother's side of the family, much larger and closer knit.
I will keep in touch..
cousin or uncle Thomas
