I recently posted about my gggrandfather, Anthony Faggiani, who came over from Italy around 1855 and settled in Brooklyn.
I just received his death certificate in the mail, and it seems his mother's maiden name was Facinella. I've never heard the name Facinella--I think I've heard of Facinelli?--is anyone out there familiar with it? I couldn't find anything on Ancestry, the Mormon site, or even Google.
The full name was Rita Facinella.
