Rissesco

I'm looking for information on the last name "Rissesco". The only thing I really know is that there is a connection to the city of Venice. If anyone might know any information it would be appreciated.

The only thing that I can guess is that the current spelling is a "Canadianized" spelling of this last name as I understand that my grandfather landed in Canada and an immigration official spelled the name as closely to how he was saying it as they could.

What sort of information would you require?

oops, forgot to include this...

http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/EIDB/ellis.html

If you do a "Sounds like (many)" search of the last name only, the results will show you many variations. Don't include the towns name either.

Any sailors in the family?
