Sephardi surname OLIVIA #general


David Edelman
 

Dear fellow genres;
I don't know if any of you have ever tried this, but my wife and I had
tried simply googling the last names in our families. One of the names
we had been looking for was OLIVIA. This website I had looked at was
very fascinating, if true. It indecated the Olivia's were Sephardic in
origin, with the name coming >from the fruit olive, as they were the
original, Israeli olive cultivators. It may be true, but my question
is, how to find a verifiabe connection after so many brick walls?
Where else to look?
Thank you so much,
David Edelman,
San Francisco.
