Boninsegna in America?

Postby Boninsegna » 28 Jan 2006, 13:44

Hello, I''m new here, so I don''t know exactly how this works. Does anybody know someone with the surname Boninsegna in America. They should be coming from Verona, Italy or that region. I know this ain''t much, but it''s all I have at this moment.

These are the only people with your surname I could find on stevemorse.org, but I don't see them as from Verona.

Thank you!
The Mario Boninsegna from Dro (a city nearby Verona, Garda Lake) could be a relative. I've sent an e-mail to family in Italy to find out if he was family.
