I am trying to locate information on my ancestors : Giovanni Grosio b. 1862 (Italy) d. 1091 (São Paulo Brasil) Parents: Gaspari & Emanuela Grosio. Giovanni emigrated to Brasil in 1883. We do not know where they are from in Italy.

The surname Grosio doesn't exist exist today in Italy.

There is no listing in the telephone books for Grosio in Brazil but there are listings for Grossio, Grossi so I suspect there might be a spelling error in the name somewhere along the line. Peter. In South America the only double letters in Spanish are LL, RR and CC so when Italian immigrated to South America and saw one L,R or C they had a tendency to add an another L,R or C to Italian immigrant names. I suspect this is what is causing the same problem in Portuguese Brazil. Peter

Thanks Peter. This is one option, true, but mostly true in Spanish speaking countries. Brazil is very different as part of the Portuguese culture.

There were lots of Grosio emigrating from Italy to Argentina and the US, really a lot. Only 5 to Brazil. I am looking for relatives of the brothers and/or sisters of my great grandfather who might be still alive in Argentina, Italy or the US. Hence the reason why I put the names of my Great, great grandparents, for reference purposes.

Best,

Péricles

It does not seem so. The name Grosio did exist. Many people had it.

There seems to be a number of GROSIO in Australia and I recall that often people would journey from South America and re-immigrate to Australia. It might be worth a look. Peter
