Montemaggiori - Montoni - DeBernardi

Post by karen520 » 26 Mar 2004, 13:46

Hi,

I am looking for information on "Montemaggiori" - "Montoni" - from Pesaro or Fossombrone. My grandfather came to America in 1929, his name was Sabbatino Montemaggiori. He had brothers named - Mario, Pietro, Sante, & Amadeo. He also had sisters named - Maria & Lodovina. I could be spelling these names incorrectly.

My grandmother is 95 years old - her name is Rose Montemaggiore (they changed the "i to e" when my grandfather came to America. She is a "Montoni".

Her mother Lina Montoni was from Milano or Torino. Her mother's maiden name was DiBernardi - I'm really not sure if I am spelling that correctly!

Any information would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks you,
Karen

Hi Karen, really exact spelling is Montemaggiori, just Montoni, just Di Bernardi, but also exist De Bernardi; Di Bernardi or De Bernardi is very rare in Italy, are in Lombardia region(Milano), not in Piemonte region(Torino).
The first name exact spelling: Sabatino, Pietro, Sante, Amedeo, Maria, Lodivina just!!
More, probable place of origin is Fossombrone(Pesaro Urbino province), why nearly all Montoni persons living in alla Pesaro Urbino province are in Fossombrone; currently are this Montoni persons in Fossombrone:

and this Montemaggiori in all Pesaro Urbino province(only 3 persons):
