SPADAFORA, Grumento Nova, Potenza, Basilicata, Italy

Post by Breezing23 » 11 Oct 2016, 02:30

I need some help,
Need a list of names of people who went to the war who were from Grumento Nova, Potenza, Basilicata.

My last name is Spadafora but it is not suppose to be....

Long story short
My granfathers name was Isidoro Spadafora who was born in Grumento Nova, Potenza. He is not alive anymore.
His parents were:
great grandfathers name was Pasquale Spadafora maried to Rosalea Bafunno
(I do not know biirthdays but will be between 1890 - 1905)
Now Rosalea Bafunno slept with another man who went to the war but did not want Pasquale to know that she did, so Isidoro was born with the last name Spadafora, but its not hus real last name nor is it mine, our whole family do not really know who we are we all have the last name Spadafora but its not right,
Does anyone have a list of the names of people from Grumento Nova that went to the war? That would narrow it down a little bit for me :wink:
Thank you everyone!
