Looking For Info On The Surname Of Signoretti

Postby signoretti28 » 29 Jun 2009, 22:57

I'm just doing research on my family history. I just started doing a family tree and am wanting to trace back to Italy to hopefully find relatives. I was born and raised in the US. My great Grandfather came to New York from Italy. Any information on the name Signoretti would be helpful Thanks

Hello Signoretti ~

My great grandfather also emigrated to the US from Italy in 1913. His surname was Signoretti, as well as my grandmothers maiden name. What was your great grandfathers name? I too have been researching the Signoretti surname. Perhaps we may be related or can help each other out! Exciting :D

Thanks~
Emily

The origin of the surname Signoretti stems from the Medieval Signorettus and signorellus first noted in the 11th and 12th century forming Signore and Signori which is the base surname while Signore is considered the variant of the base name Signori.

The name and its variations, alterations, derivations is distributed thruout Italy with certain spelling prevalent in Southern Italy and others in the North of Italy. If you go to www.gens.labo.net/en/cognomi you will notice that there are 137 cities,towns and villages thruout Italy from Northern Italy down to Calabria having persons surnamed Signoretti. On the surface it appears that the Signoretti name started in the far north and slowly descended into Southern Italy but I could be mistaken and the order is reversed??

Now that the origin of the name Signori is listed in the Italian surname dictionary is known you can proceed to other genealogy questions you may have about the surname. =Peter=
