Enjoyed your Blog. This sounds oh so familar to me. My husband is 1/2 Italian, even though we have an English surname of Schofield. His Grandmother and Great Grandparents came over on a ship from Italy in the 1920's. His Grandmother's name's before she died was Antionette Marie DiTullio-Schofield- Stetson- Famigletti. She had been married 3 times. Crazy huh? Beth Schofield
