My family line is: 1920 Roanoke,LA Marie Bernice Racca 4/27/1885 Hayes,LA John Baptist Racca 1854 Lafayette Parish,LA Alcide Racca 1786 France Louis Henry Racca 1756 Brest, France Jean Phillip Racca
I was told that we were previously in either Sicily or Calabria "provinces"(?) of Italy. Surname originally was maybe "La Rocca". I couldn't find "Racca" in the Palermo, Sicily phone book when I went in 2011. Brest is near Normandy. No surprise--the Normans seized Sicily about 1100. Presumably, one of them decided to return to his ancestral region with his Racca spouse. I live in Lafayette, LA. Au revoir cher cousins!
