The name Patiniott/Patiniotis/Patignott Malta
In researching my family tree I found one of my ancestors
Nicolas Giorgio Patignot was born in Patmos Greece 1670/1680 and married in Malta in 1699 to Margharita AnnaMariaMassarella.
His father was Guiseppe(Iosif) Patignot who married Maria ? in Patmos? The surname could have been originally Patniotis,Patiniotis. UnfortunatelyMaltese records are in Latin so Christian names sound Italian. Also I have found the surname was misspelt or written phonetically. Can anybody help with how to find Greek records or has info that can help.
