My mother's last name is Alfonsi. She was born in Tunisia in 1940, from Paul Jean Alfonsi, born 1910 and still alive and kicking!!, in Venaco, near Bastia, Corsica, a retired army colonel. We have an extended corsican family, including Jacques, Marie, Josephine, all Paul brothers and sisters still alive and mostly retired. Paul had 3 daugthers Myriam (my mother), Jocelyne and Josiane and a son, Gerald, who has 2 daughters, Sophie and Cecile. Sophie is married and lives in Bluebell, PA. We also count numerous cousins, including Charles Alfonsi, an active General in the french medical corps, his brother Jean Louis, a high school german teacher, and Rene's son, whose name I can not remember right now, who works for the town of Bastia. I have found a few Alfonsi on the internet, mainly corsicans and italians, lots had emigrated to south america as well.
