My Family Surname...

Postby ptimber » 27 Feb 2003, 01:02

There are 909 persons in Ital;y that have the lorini surname but the surname is not listed as an Italian surname in the Italian surname dictionary. It is Italian, of course but either comes from abroad or is local to one area of Italy. Presently 60% are in Piemonte region and the rest scattered about the north and down the boot. There is an indication that the name has a copat of arms. ifg you go to a commercial site for a brief look it is www infokey.com. For further inquiry into heraldry start off with www heraldic.org/faq and if you get back to me with the place of origin of your particular family in Italy I may be able to refer you to an antiquarian book dealer in Italy that has catalogues of old books discussing Nobility in that area if one exists. In the interim I would suggest that if you are truly seeking to establish a family tree then read this website from the beginning where genealogy is discussed and where you may find that all records prior to the 1600 are only involving persons with some nobility or history. Think about a research objective in order to prioritize your efforts.. It is a project! Peter
