Dear Jean:
My husband's Garfalo family is also from this area. His gr-father Guiseppe Garofalo married Antonina LaMonica in 1922. In the early 1970s my husband was in this area of Italy and tried to do some research. He went to the local courthouse or church and found the old records are full of Giacomo, Girolomo, Antonio Garofalo. Many who married LaMonica's too. We must remember the traditions there of naming the first and second born sons after the grandfathers and daughter after grandmothers. SO as time went on there were many more little Garofalo and LaMonicas with the same names. Like a good researcher (NOT) he threw his arms in the air and prayed to someday marry a good woman who could figure it all out for him. LOL! I am trying but it is not easy. Sadly he did not bring home a list for me to have a step up on. I would be interested in hearing from you just in case our lines are related. My husband's family immigrated to NY in the early 1900s. Best wishes on your research: Ciao - Jerri jerri@garofalos.org
