can anyone tell me what my surname means and its origins.My grandfather came to uk from just outside Barga Tuscany around 1911. He was interned during ww2 on the Isle of Mann as he was not naturalized as a uk citizen. He married a irish girl ,had a family here unfortunally he was killed in an accident in 1961.

Hello and welcome! :-)

You can see by this Distribution of Surname site that the surname GINESI is mostly concentrated around the Region of Toscana (Tuscany) today. ... si&x=0&y=0

The Comune of Barga is in the Province of Lucca...

When checking the Italian Phone Book, I found only one listing for GINESI in Barga - ... Barga&ind=

Should you decide to write to this "potential" relative - :D
