BATTISTONE / PANTALONE
I am married to Peter Battistone, second son to Francesco Battistone and Angiolina Pantalone who immigrated to Canada from Sant'Eufemia. Many years back we started a family tree as a way of explaining to our children their connection to the many cousins in Canada, USA , Italy and Australia and about their Italian heritage. To date this project has grown from our immediate family to finding ancestors all over the world some we have only corresponded with by email and others who we just met for the first time.

My name is Flaviana DiNardo. I live in Toronto. My father's name is Antonio DiNardo and he is knows as ciarbacanno. I'm in love with St. Eufemia, even though the population is declining. I love it so much and because it is a part of my heritage, that I bought a house in the town and my family plan to go back during some summers.
DI NARDO / DI LIBERO / DI CAMILLO
I have some ancestors from Sant'Eufemia. They are way back in the 18th century however. I don't know if anyone will have any connection to them. Irene Dinardo, born 1790 in Sant'Eufemia, married Ferdinando Fiore-Nanni of Campo di Giove'. Her parents were Giovanni Lorenzo Dinardo, born about 1760 and Fiorenza DiLibero or Dicamillo, born about 1760. Are either of the names DiLibero or DiCamillo popular in Sant'Eufemia?
I realize these are very distant names but if anyone has a connection please let me know.

He eventually settled in Baltimore, Md. as did his brothers Paul and Ralph and his sister Annie.

My mother Domenica,(Mitzi), aunt Annunciata (Nancy) and uncle Phil were all born in Baltimore. My aunt Nancy is 96 years old and lives in Florida. All of the other siblings are deceased.

Nunziata's parents - also from Sant' Eufemia were Alfonso PANTALONE and Madelene DI GIOVINE; they had three other children: Marietta, Colarice, and Antonio.
