family name TASSE

Postby dickyboy » 15 Jan 2010, 21:33

One of my ancestors was called Augustinus Tasse. He was born in 1716 in Chiavenna, but seemed to have moved to Holland (Groede), where he died on 26 Oct 1770.
How can I access records (in Chiavenna) to find out more?
Thanks.

If you go to www.nonsolocap.it you will find two CHIAVENNA and one Chiavenna neighborhood or absorbed hamnlet by another town. Can you determine the correct CHIAVENNA? =Peter=

Thank you for your reply. The information I have comes from www.familysearch.com and it just mentions as birthplace of Augustinus Tasse: Chevennes (Chiavenna) Zw. (It). (°1716 + 26 Oct 1770).
I don't know if this is helpful.

Chevenne is in France and is very far from Italy...

Yes, les Chevennes, but this is probably the French name of the Italian Chiavenna, near the border with Zwitserland (French/Italian speaking).

Can you give me the zip code for the Chiavenna you believe we are discussing?(www.nonsolocap.it).

One Chiavenna proper is onthe border with Switzerland and the other Villa di Chiavenna is also on the border with Switzerland and both are inthe same general are. =Peter=
