surname DONADIO

Post by LSDonadio » 02 Jun 2007, 15:04

I have heard it is hard to track the geneology of the DONADIO name because there was an orphanage with that name and all children that left there was given DONADIO as their surname.
Are there any DONADIOs out there that know if this is true and/or know anything about the orphanage?
Any info would help!
Thanks,
Laura Donadio
