SURNAME TORE (TORRE)

Postby mariatrd » 24 Apr 2014, 13:20

My husbantds grandfather was from Italy. I don't know where? They say around Rome but unsure. He did not tell his family very much of his life. He wrote his name Domnick Tore but the family changed the name to Torre. I would love to find out more about his name to help me search more about who he was. Can anyone help.

Are you quite certain about the Tore spelling? Today, the vast majority of Tore's reside on the island of Sardegna; see http://www.gens.info/italia/it/turismo- ... 1kFSlc3esI

Torre is a far more common surname: http://www.gens.info/italia/it/turismo- ... 1kFo1c3esI
