I wonder if anyone can help me. I am researching my family who emigrated to South Africa in the 1800's. The surname is Chiazzari. I know that they are mentioned in a book called The History of the Italians in South Africa by Sani, Gabriele. I was wondering if anyone has this book and would be able to look up the Chiazzari entries for me. This would be very much appreciated.
Regards
Leslie

Many thanks for your reply and posting the snippets from google books. I know there are a few entries on the Chiazzari's in this book but have been unable to get a copy of it. It may be easier if I try to get a copy of the book in Italian as the English ones seem unavailable.
Thank you
Leslie
