looking up lastname chemtonzio

Postby ed0209 » 09 Oct 2009, 01:59

While looking for information about my last name "Centonzio" , i was told information was found in the "Dizionario storico-blasonico delle famiglie nobili e notabili italiane: Giovanni Battista Di Crollalanza" under the lastname"Chemtonzio".
Anyone know an online resource that i can look at this book online ? maybe a pdf file , or if have access yourself, look it up if its true that the information is there? I would like to buy this book but first i would like to make sure that it actually has the information.
Any help is appreciated.

The Blasonico book is not immediately available on the internet but you might wish to consult a commercial heraldic website www.heraldrys.com/search.php to verify the information. The surname Chemtonzio does not appear in the Italian surname dictionary but neither is my surname and yet I too have a surname listing inthe same Blasonico which I obtained from an antiquarian book dealer in Bologna.

There are quite a number of heraldic websites that maybe checked for all of Italy, regions, areas, cities. You may wish to consult google.com by inserting in the title CHEMTONZIO SURNAME GENEALOGY ITALY and see if there has been any research on that surname. =Peter=

www.heraldrys.com/search.php

for 49,90Euros they will provide you with a parchment paper containing a detailed history of your surname and your coat-of-arm. No matter what surname you ask, they will always find that you have noble roots...

I could not find them on the telephone directory and they do not provide a telephone number.

I would not waste my money with them...

I was not suggesting purchasing any document but merely to verify the information so the admonition from Liviomoreno is pointless. =Peter=

Maybe I was not clear: they do not provide information for free and the info they provide is merely invented.
