Masia or Maxia in Scano di Montiferro, Oristano, Sardinia

Postby MarieAntonia » 26 Jul 2007, 00:45

Greetings.

I was born in Scano di Montiferro, in western central Sardinia, with the surname Masia. I know Masia is somewhat common as an Italian name, but I am wondering specifically if anyone knows about it in Sardinia, especially in Scanesi.

Thank you.
