Searching for surname Tiscia/Tisci from Foggia

Postby JDinNJ » 26 Jan 2011, 14:12

My grandfather was from Foggia. He was called James in the U.S. I don't know what his first name was in Italy. Was born circa 1896, and was married to Maria, I believe. I will look for her last name.

Any information would be appreciated.

Normally James is Vincenzo italian first name; I found a Vincenzo Tiscia but married at Filomena D'Anello( or surname with similar spelling; both coming from Sannicandro Garganico- Foggia province) and living in in Stamford CT;

Although many Vincenzo changed their name to James when they were in the US, the Italian equivalent for James is Giacomo.

No, Valerie, they are not mine. I am pretty clear now that the name was Tiscia. There was some question as to whether it was changed from Tisci, but that does not appear to be the case.

I was unsure if it was Tiscia or Tisci. My maiden name was Tiscia, and apparently that was my grandfather name, as well. It would make sense that his name was Vincenzo, since my father was named Vincent & everyone called him Jim. Thanks for solving that mystery!

My grandfather Tiscia and his wife lived in Scranton, PA. Their first child, Marguerite was born in Italy, around 1914.

I think I would recognize my grandmother's maiden name if I see it, but I can not recall it.

Thanks, again, everyone who replied!!
