Trieste Genealogy & Surnames-Andorlig

Postby sforza » 23 Nov 2014, 20:06

Hi,
My research has taken me up the boot to Trieste, where a 4th GGM, Maria Ballarin, was born. I received from the Diocese copies of her baptismal, marriage and burial certs. Unfortunately, they are barebones. But her birth cert contained her mother's name, Maria Andorlig.
This name does not appear to exist anywhere in the world, at least today. I did searches under various spellings, including variations of the common Italian prefix "Andro."
Only a few potential "hits:" Andorli, which appears solely in a specific area of Northern Norway, and a single "Andorlic," who appears on a manifest of a ship traveling to the US. It says the passenger is Croatian. I also located a few surnames ending in *orlig," mostly from Slovakia and Germany, including one "Sandorlig." "Androli" is a rare surname that is found today mostly in France.
There were two other names listed (the godparents Ursich and Pellarini). The surname Ursich reaches its density in Trieste. Pellarini achieves density in Udine and Trieste. So both these names are common in Trieste, as is my 4th GGM's surname, Ballarin.
I know Trieste was Autro-Hungarian for most of the last several hundred years. I'm also aware the surnames could be Slavic, Hungarian, etc. But Andorlig is simply nowhere.
Does anyone have any knowledge of Trieste genealogical resources? I do plan on writing the church for any documentation on Maria Andorlig.
Any other ideas to get to the bottom of this mysterious surname?
Thanks!

I can scan it, but it is not a copy of the original church register; the info has been transcribed onto a form. The transcription is a neat, unambiguous print (not script).

Hi,
I found in old Trieste surnames just ANDERLICH;
"Maria, nata Pipan, nel 1695 detta il suo testamento, nel 1767 Giacomo giunge da Rayfemberg, di mestiere sarto, sposato e con un figlio, vive nella citta' vecchia"

...coming from Rayfemberg
http://triestestoria.altervista.org/famiglie/a.html
most probaly this surname is the modern ANDERLE in Trieste...
It could be possible that Andorlig was the Anderlich.. mistaken?

Thanks, Suanj. I think the "Rayfemberg" reference on the Trieste cognomi site may be a typo. The closest placename I can find is "Reifenberg" in Germany.

Yes I agree.. in italian is Rifembergo; in German: Reifenberg; in slovenian: ex Rihemberg or Rihemberk currently: Branik..
Reifenberg is a hamlet of Nova Gorica, Slovenia..
best,
