Hello! Here are some of the surnames with different ways of writing depending the country where the family is living. I am searching about my family surnames Dortas or D'Ortas, Carregosa or Carregoza (Carrigosa or Carrigoza). I read about Samuel D'Ortas who lived in Leiria in Portugal (1496) for a few years and after the inquisition came to Portugal he left there and probably went to Pesaro in Italy. But the name has an origin as a jewish surname also wel known in Greece, Turkey, Syria, Israel, Mediterranean countries. My great gran father Tito Livio Vieira Dortas (1839-1914) use to sign his surnames as Vieira D'Ortas. If you know any information or would like to share information contacte me email@example.com .
