Family Oliva, Cantello near Varese

Postby oliva999 » 03 Jun 2009, 19:23

I'm new here and im seeking for some informations about my mothers Family. My Grandfathers Name was Luigi Oliva. He came to Switzerland from Northern Italy, Cantello near Varese. He came about 1920 to Switzerland and married a Swiss Women. They lived in Zurich and had 7 Children. He was called Alois in Switzerland.
Does somebady know any Olivas near Cantello. Maybe there are some jewish (sephardic) roots, because the Name seemed to be an old sephardic name. As far as we know, the familiy came over spain to italy, but is christian since many generations.
Maybe somebody knows something about the Name Oliva.
Thank a lot, and sorry for my english
