Hello,

My great-Grandmother was Maria Gorzi and has been noted as Greek on a number of documents. She was born in what is now Israel and lived in Egypt, and although there were a lot of Greek families doing this at the time (she was born 1899) I am struggling to find reference to the name Gorzi anywhere, let alone with any Greek connection.

Can anyone confirm that this is indeed a Greek name? I know there is a town called Gorzi in Greece, but this is all I have to go on at present.

Thanks,
Laurence Pisani
