My name, as we spell it now, does contain the space between the De and Stefano. According to my grandparents' marriage certificate, my grandfather's parents names were Alphonso Di Stefano(spelt "Di") and Carolina Barbetta. His marriage certificate states he was born in Rocchetta San Antonio Avellino, Italy. I am confused about the town listed since I belive that Rocchetta San Antonio is part of Foggia and not Avellino. My grandfather told his children he was one of 17 or 18 children but we have never been able to confirm this nor do we even know any of their names. Since you are from Puglia, are you familiar with the area of Foggia and Rocchetta San Antonio?
