Notes for Pietro Giacomo Zizzi:
Pietro was born in Cisternino but moved to Martina Franca, apparently upon his marriage.Several of his elder children took Cisternino brides and resided there.That he was the grandson of Palmo Zizzi is based on his moniker "Palmarello" or "Palmarelli", found in the baptism record of his son Vito Giuseppe, as well as the baptism record of his grandson Francesco Paolo, son of Stefano.The naming patterns of his brothers' children allowed me to reconstruct his entire immediate family, later confirmed by independent data supplied by Orazio and Giuseppe Zizzi.
Pietro and Francesca engaged in the unusual practice of adding "Vito" before the names of many of their male children and the name "Martino" after the first given name.In everyday parlance, the pre-name "Vito" appears not to have been used, as subsequent records show "Vito Giovanni Maria" known merely as "Giovanni".
