Re: TEDESCO surname in Italy #austria-czech #usa #holocaust

TEDESCO in Italian means German. My best guess is that immigrants to Italy from German speaking countries who did not have a last name, or did not want to continue with their original one, changed it. In my genealogy database, I have TEDESCO from the late 1700s, all probably born in northern Italy.
