vavonese , bovin family

Postby Bryan vavonese » 20 Dec 2013, 07:52

Hello all,

I stumbled upon the post on the last name vavonese while searching the Internet. I'm looking for any information on the name vavonese. I've always been told that my family name was vavonese. After reading the post a last name of bovin came up. We'll I have uncle and four cousins with the last name of bovines. I was told that they may have changed bovin to bovines to make it more American. All the names are coming up from right around where I was born and my family was raised. I was born in Washington pa. I would like to get any information that I can on the names from that area. Can anyone help point me in the right direction.

Thank you,
Bryan Vavonese

Thank you so much for the fast response. This maybe a family member I believe that my mother has spoken about this name in the past. I'm going to get in contact with her and let you know. She still lives in Washington pa.

Thank you,
Bryan V.

Thanks Marty that helps a lot. So vavonese is a name that can be traced back to Italy? I don't have my computer unpacked yet, and having a hard time looking at the document you sent.

Thanks again.

Bryan,

Please let me know what you found. I've also been trying to track down a little bit. My grandfather is Francis, Fortunato's son. I believe there still are some Vavonese's in Sicily. I will ask.
