I have have come to a still point. Can't get past Alexander Mastio born around 1857 in Louisiana. I am trying to find a link between the surname Mastio in the US and the surname Mastio in Italy. Having difficulty. Any info would be helpful and greatly appreciated. I am aware of a castle in Italy called "the Mastio" but have found very little info regarding it. thanks

Hi! Maybe you should be looking in France instead of Italy.

I just looked at a census record of an Alexander Mastio, born 1857... both his parents were born in France. 8O

Look forward to your opinion on this.

Re: Mastio

Postby mastio » 23 Nov 2005, 00:35

My Grandmother told me a story when I was a little girl about the family being French and in an attempt to escape the French syndicate they changed their name from Masteiur (I think) to Mastio. I always thought this was just a story to entertain a young child but perhaps not. Now I am completly lost. I know that there were 2 Alexander Mastio's in New Orleans. Wilhelmina Vogelsanger was my Great Great grand mother. My Grandfather died when my father was 8 yrs old and all of the family history with him. When I saw the castle "the Mastio" I thought this was my evidence we were of Italian origin. I cannot find Alexander Mastio's parents. Any advice on where to go now? Thanks so much for the help!

Hi, personally I think that the surname Mastio was present in France from many long time... the first Mastio it appeared in 1668 year Salmbach, , Bas Rhin, Alsace, France, and in 1671 year in Neewiller-Près-Lauterbourg,Bas-Rhin,Alsace,FRANCE .. both places are mentioned in some genealogic tree of Louisiana....

1668:
http://gw.geneanet.org/index.php3?b=gl9 ... N;v=mastio
1671:
http://gw.geneanet.org/index.php3?b=blo ... N;v=mastio
for better help you must write in some newsgroup of French genealogy..

That does help although I am still puzzled as to why the name seems Italian. I guess only time and more research will tell. Thanks
