The Sonnino Blog needs your help!

I am looking for people to send in family stories/updates, recipes, pictures, looking for somebody, or anything else of interest to other Sonninese. I'll publish just about anything, seriously! Hope to hear from you. You can email me at

Bernardini's from Spain?

While visiting Syracuse this past weekend I got into a conversation with my grandfather about his parents, who were both Sonninese. My grandfather (Angelo Bernardni) told me that his father insisted that the Bernardini's were originally from Spain, where the name had been "Bernardo" or something similar. Now, this is the first I have ever heard of this. Does anybody know of any Sonninese of Spanish descent? I would love to find out it this is in fact true. Then again, it just be a family mythology.
