Town in Parma ?

Postby joey066 » 11 Jun 2011, 06:19

Looking at some records from Bedonia, Parma, Italy; I see some persons listed as being born out of town. One place the town is listed as "Fonta Bona" another "Fontabonadae" (Latin records).

Any guesses to where this could be referring?

Bedonia has a huge number of frazioni, the greatest number I have ever seen, in fact:

Alpe, Anzola, Bedonia, Bruschi di Sopra, Calice, Carniglia, Casaleto, Casalporino, Cavignaga, Chiesiola, Cornolo, Drusco, Fontanachiosa, I Pilati, Illica, Libbia, Masanti di Sopra, Masanti di Sotto, Momarola, Montarsiccio, Montevaca', Monti, Nociveglia, Piane di Carniglia, Ponteceno, Romezzano, Roncole, Scopolo, Selvola, Setterone, Spora, Strepeto, Tasola, Tomba, Volpara

What, you may ask, is a frazione? See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frazione for the answer.

.
By the way, there also exists Frazione Fontanabona, Comune di Pagnacco, Provincia di Udine, Regione di Friuli-Venezia Giulia in Northeastern Italy, but I don't think this applies. :)
