Along with general directions to Ateleta from Rome, I am looking for any information or history of the Alfonse family from Ateleta. I am going to Italy for a semester in Fall 06' and want to find a mill which was once owned by the Alfonses. It would be incredibly meaningful, especially to my great-grandmother,Nana, who just turned 96 today. She asked for me to take pictures of her family's mill there, to bring to her next Christmas. Her maiden name is Patricia Alfonse, and her brothers were Jules and Clarence. If anyone knows anything of the Alfonse mill please contact me! I would be beyond grateful!
