{{One Name Study|name=Piscioneri}}


This is a One Name Study to collect together in one place everything about the Piscioneri surname and the variants of that name. The hope is that other researchers like you will join our study to help make it a valuable reference point for people studying lines that cross or intersect.

Task List

We're just getting started, so please consider how you can jump in. Ideas and contributions are welcome! I grabbed this list of suggestions from WikiTree as a starting place, and will continue to update. If you see anything that you can contribute here, please jump in.

  • Are there orphaned profiles that need improvement?
  • Are there unsourced profiles with the surname?
  • Are there unconnected profiles with the surname?

There are none of the above. This is good news and bad news. It means we're starting pretty much from scratch....but we also don't have any clean up to do. :)

Research Notes section. Are there any weak links that need more sources? Post your direct family line as a family unit and invite others to do the same. The goal is to find a link between family units using traditional and/or DNA research.

Resources section. Are there any published books based on your surname with possible links? Historical societies in your geographical area of study that hold files on your surname?

  • Family Historical Societies
  • Websites
  • Links for further research
  • Pictures.
    • Upload them through the link in the right column.
  • Surname Origins and Meaning
  • DNA section.
  • Famous people. Are there celebrities or historical figures with the surname? Add them to your study and encourage members to post a comment about their connections to famous people with the name.

You might be a Piscioneri descendant if...

There are a lot of Piscioneri descendants with other last names. When we trace our Southern Italian ancestors, it seems that someone in every family is married to a Piscioneri. The majority are from Caulonia, Reggio Calabria, Italy.

  • You have Italian ancestors from Caulonia.
  • Other last names in your tree are Taranto, Vallelonga, Circosta, Geracitano, Fazzolari, Mercuri.
