Pontremoli

Postby eddienyr » 20 Dec 2009, 18:15

Can anyone tell me anything about this surname? From what
I know I think during WW1 my wifes greatgrandfather mysteriously
sent his three sons to live in other european countrys. If
I remember a story correctly one of them made it to the
USA cali I think. One of the other family members was trying
to track them down. They were apparently paid a visit by
the FBI I think asking why they were trying to find them.
As far as I know this is true info. Anybody know anything.

Thanks
Eddie

But Pontremoli is a well known town too - it's in the hills between Parma and La Spezia.

And here is a link to an explanation of the surname which also mentions the same area:

Dear Eddie please advise what aspect of the family are you interested in researching since the dynamics of the Pontremoli surname and it political dynamics are indeed formidable. Encountering so much so casually was indeed very interestging. =Peter=
