Hello.

If you ask what means FENZA in Italian, it has no meant.

But it's a dialectical expression in use in Campania, a region at south of Italy, where is Neaples, and it means FENCE.

At this site, typing the surname in the box on the left, you can see the diffusion of a surname on italian territory.
Typing "Fenza" you will see it's most diffusion is just in campania.

i don't know if this is what you asked for.

Regards,
Antonio

You are second cousins. You both carry at least 1/8 of the genetic code of your great grandfather...the person you both share. You both also are likely to share 1/8 of the genetic code of your great grandmother...if she is the same to both of you.

Now, what specific Fenza do you want to know about? Full name, place he/she lived/ name of spouse, children/ approximated birth date or death date....

That will provide a chance for us to help you more. If you want something specific on your family, you need to give us specific facts to work from.

Let us know.

so does that mean we share 1/4 of our genes, since 1/8 added to another 1/8 equals 1/4 of genes shared. Would a blood test confirm this, would it actually come back saying were related with matches?

NO..........

You need to go to a site that explains the nature of fractions. Your 1/8 and his 1/8 are only 1/8 of either of you......

You can't get more closely related to each other then 1/8 of your genetic code. And a DNA test would confirm this. A blood test, however, might only tell if one of you is pregnant or if you took drugs you weren't suppose to, or had diabetes or something like that.

Now do you have a genealogy question rather then a genetic one?

Oops.......you are correct in part. The one eight I was referring to was from that generation...a combo of your great grandmother and grandfather. It is still only 1/8 of either of you...but a combination of both your ggrandfather and ggmother. So actually you get 1/16th from either and it does get to be 1/8.

YOU ARE RIGHT in the approach and I stand corrected. However, it is only 1/8 th and not 1/4 th.


But you need more then a simple blood test to determine it...you need a DNA analysis.

Forgive me for being so snippy. Made a real fool out of myself.
Guess I got my just desserts! :cry:
