My name is David if anyone knows the true origin of our family I would love to know it. I am a third genaration Trotta and have heard of of to origins obviously we orginated in Italia, but before that (i've heard from my uncle who traveled to italy many times for business and research) our family migrated through out eourope through the early half of the last century, the only reason for a family to move that many times is religois persicution, the only peolpe being belittled at that time were the jews, in theory we settled down in Italia to hide from this threat and changed our name. One of our cousins in italia along with new of a great aunt (who are now both deceased) new of a great family secret, could it have been that we are actually jewish, it fits. If someone could help me out here, it would be much appreciated. I am so confused.
