Giorgianni- San Pier Niceto, Italy

Giorgianni- San Pier Niceto, Italy

Hi! I'm so excited to see such wonderful communication with folks who share my surname. I'm 36 and first generation italian. My father D.P.G. was born in San Pier Niceto Italy and immigrated here when he was 5 years old. Sadly, he died last September 19. I have always been interested in family geneology and have listened intently to all the "old" stories. I can tell you that my father's father was Pietro Giorgianni and his mother was Nicolina, born in Barnsboro, PA. Soon after marriage they moved to San Pier Niceto, Italy. My grandmother was a teacher and my grandfather was a "tax collector". During the war my great-grandfather (maternal) decided to move the family to the USA. They settled in New Brunswick, NJ; Van Nuyves, CA; and Venezuela (this brother, Pietro, the oldest, didn't make the quota in that year and ended up stopping, staying, and raising a family in Caracas, Venezuela). My great uncle, Anthony Georgianna from New Brunswick traced our family history back to the supposed beginning starting with Giuseppe, "Master of All". Did anyone know that our family name literally means "beautiful place, by the water"? I would be very interested in any information anyone has on the Giorgianni's from SPN, IT. Any distant relatives out there? Please write if you would like to corresponde. I have further information on the immigration of my father I'd love to share. Until then, It's been great reading all this exciting information. Good luck to you all!

Hi, all

I was visiting this site and I decided to search other Giorgianni.
It is really good to find other Giorgianni living around the world.

I am 38 years old, my father's name is Aparecido Giorgianni, my grand-father's name is
Rosario Giorgianni and my great-grandfather's name is Pietro
Giorgianni. He came from Italy to Brasil in 1906 (I am not sure about it).

I am married and I have two daughters, their names are:
- Giuliana Martinatti Giorgianni (7)
- Giovanna Martinatti Giorgianni (4)

I was reading another messages and I saw that there was another Pietro Giorgianni, it is very interesting.

Please, contact me, if you wish, to know a little bit more about Giorgianni that are living in Brasil.

Thanks

M.Giorgianni

Hi Dominick,
I have just returned from Sicily this past July. I had found relatives in Furnari, Messina, Giorgianni's and Catalfamo's. I had been corresponding by email with Giuseppe Amalfi in San Pier Niceto, and while in Sicily, I drove to San Pier to visit him. San Pier is not far from Furnari. Here is Giuseppe's email address: gamalfi@tin.it
Write to him, he may be able to help you. These towns are so small that everyone knows each other, so if there are Giorgianni's in San Pier, and there are, he will know. I found Giuseppe when I drove into town and asked someone in the street where I could find him, and they drove me to his house! Good luck. Oh, you must write in Italian or Sicilian dialect. Very few people in Sicily speak English.

I noted from your message that you believe the name means 'beautiful place by the water." I had understood that our name has Greek origins and means "George son of John." If one adds an "s' to the end of our name it sounds very Greek.

My father Francesco, now deceased, immigrated from SPN in 1921. Interestingly enough he had a brother Pietro who emigrated to Caracas but he died a bachelor in the early '50s.

My first cousin Nicola (Formica) is currently mayor of SPN and our family visited him and his family in May, 2001.

Dominick-
I'm not sure if we can help each other out but I'll tell you the Giorgianni Family History I know about our family. My husband says that he believes that the Giorgianni name might have been changed when they came over from Italy, but we aren't too sure if that's true or not. My name is Stephanie Giorgianni (married into the Giorgianni family) and my husband's name is Michael John Giorgianni. His mother and father were Laural & John Giorgianni. They have 4 boys together (Michael John, Tony Vincent, Domonick Antonio and Mario Ernesto). John Giorgianni was born on Nov 26, 1956 somewhere in New Jersey (Possibly Trenton). His Parents were Anthony, born Jan. 22, 1930 in Jersey & Catherine (Joan) Giorgianni born Nov. 13, 1936. The only other information I really have is that Anthony's father's name was John Giorgianni born in Italy Sept. 12, 1891 and we think his mother's name was Catherine Canestra. I'm not sure if all of this information is exact, but as far as we know it is. My husband's grandfather just died in Tempe, AZ this last week so maybe if there is a service in Jersey we will be able to speak with family to get more information. I look forward to hearing from you and hope you find all the information you are looking for! Thanks!

My maternal grandfather was Frank Giorgianni and he was born in San Pier Niceto in the early 1900's. Some of his siblings emigrated to Venezuela and some stayed in SPN. I went back several years ago and visited. We are related to the Previte family also.
