Any Leonardo's or Angela's in your client's tree?

Interesting...he had a son named Leonardo. My client only knows the names though- no birth order. It can be tough when you're working with limited information.
I've seen some other Leonardo Tufaros though that don't seem to be of the same branch. It could be that this was a common given name of the area. I do know that the Tufaro name all comes from one particular area- around Calabria- but even more so just over the border in Potenza, Basilicata.
I'm curious- where do you find this image?
Thanks so much for all the help! I got bombarded with clients all of a sudden. Meanwhile my Uncle's been in intensive care for weeks...I'm working on very little sleep here.
