Demo Family in Venezia (VE)

Postby Fabio Demo » 06 Mar 2015, 20:17

Hello Everyone, I'm Brazilian and I trying to find records, name of persons of my family.
The only thing I have now it's a simple and short text from Heraldrys Institute of Rome and little history told by my grandpa(a brother which remained in Italy, and the other that came to Brazil) .
In the future I plan to visit Italy and discover, but from now I need to know something.
I would really appreciate if someone could help me, thanks.

The reason you don't find much info is because you are of Greek descent. Yes, your close ancestors may have lived in Venice (which is very close associated with Greece) but you family is Greek and the name is DIMOS (ΔΗΜΟΣ). In English the I becomes E (Dimitrios = Demetrios).

Thank's Marty ^^
According to Heraldrys Institute of Rome, in 1290 became a noble family, with several important members. I believe from that date is more easy to find something.I have so much interest in my family history, so each information for more little that be, it's very awesome for me.
Names I don't have, but I want to know someone of the same surname and family living in Venice or Greece today if is possible.

Filmways, the only site say that my family come from Greek, go to Dalmacia and stay in Venice, where I can find more info about this?Every site say that I have to pay to have information, but I don't have my own money, so... no way

The Dimos family is huge and there are variations like: Dimopoulos (son of Dimos), etc. There should be lots of info in Ancestry.com (Remember, Venice was established with the help of Byzantines on Greek Democratic principles. It was the only Democratic territory in Italy. Also, territories like the ionian Islands, Dalmatia you mention and Ypiros were also from time to time Greek territories

There is an alternative name is DE MOULA, a Venetian name going back many centuries. It is visible the Demo is short for De moula. There is evidence to suggest that the name de Moula was modified.

Hey, probably has 70% chance of it being my relative
I made some researches with my mom and I discover some dates, my great grandfather(maybe his name is Antonio, nobody has sure) born in Italy and came to Brazil when he was a kid, and he died with 42 years when my grandfather was 12 years.
My grandfather was born in 1936 so my great grandfather was born in 1906.
My grandfather said something about a uncle called Giuseppe. The names in that website are the same, but the dates no.

What is told by my Grandpa is: "Demo" are a reference for "folk, people" in Greek, and the family lived in Venice until one part of family stay there, and other came to Brazil, just that.
But thank you for all the information, did not really know any of this

Partly true. "Demo" as you called it is also short for "Demosthenes" (Dimosthenis) is similar to Italian names like Giustiniani, or Zorzi, etc.
