Robert - I read your Fonda information and found it to be very interesting. Have you ever heard of the Marquis de Fonda or Baron Fonda? It is my understanding that he lived near Genoa, then tried to instigate a political/religious revolt (possibly in the 1500's) and was forced to flee to Holland. It is said that he is the anscestor of the Fondas who then emigrated to the Albany, NY area. I have found no info about Marquis de Fonda any any books in the U.S. - maybe you will have better luck from your end. Also, have you tried posting a message on the Italian Genealogy Forum?
