Help please - Allaix

Postby mallaix » 15 Apr 2009, 14:36

I am hoping someone can help me find out any information on the last name Allaix. My great-grandmother was Eugenia Allaix. She was from Roure, which is outside of Torino. I know she was born in 1894 and left Italy for New York shortly after my grandfather (Theodore Allaix) was born. I have been trying to find out more info (meaning, coat of arms, etc.) on the name Allaix but have had no luck. I did see on another website that it may have originally been spelled Allaise, but that was I could find. Any help or insight would be great!!

Thanks

Hello!
Double checked this site:
http://italia.indettaglio.it/eng/cognomi/cognomi.html
Allaix is still a current surname in Roure.
Do you think it had been perhaps 'americanized' or are you looking for the
'root' surname?
Thanks
