Looking for information on both family names. Came the the U.S. & settled in Rhode Island. I believe both families were originally from the Lazio region.
My grandfather was born a Menna, but both parents were killed in an auto accident in Rhode Island in the late 1910's or early 1920's. He and his 2 sisters were adopted by his father's sister & husband, whose last name was Infussi.
Ray Its goiong to be ka problem(noot insurmountable) if you do not know the town of origin for both surnames since in Italy all records, history and family are there in that one place! You can look over the list for both names in the province of Lazio. There are more than 200 Menna and only 35 Infussi in the entire region so if you go to www.paginebianche.it and insert one surname ata time in the first line and Lazio in the third line and click CERCA you can familiarize yourself with names and addresses and telephone numbers ( its an italian directory but a directory is a directory in any language. To \find the town of origin go to www.ellisisland.org and look up their arrival in the USA then look up the ships manifest for information about them and the family. Remebner children take on the fathers surname but Italian woman NEVER lose their maiden name. Peter
