I apologize for not answer sooner but it never came across in my messages. I was checking the boards for anything "new" this evening and saw your question. Our D'Ambrosio line came from Faeto. Many settled in the Dover, Ohio area. All of our Ernests, or forms of, were born there. So, this does not sound familiar. But please let me know where your line is from. If they are from Faeto, there is more than good chance we are related AND am still looking for a few names. Hope we can help each other!
