As you can see from this map http://www.gens.labo.net/en/cognomi/genera.html?cognome=QUASSI and also from current Italian telephone listings http://www.paginebianche.it/execute.cgi?ts=103&qs=QUASSI&btt=1&om=0&l=en, the Quassi surname is very rare indeed.

At first glance at ancestry . com, there seem to be no Quassi records at all. Do you have any additional details concerning your ancestors which may aide the search?

I have often found the National Archives of Australia to have many useful records concerning immigrant Italians. In this case, however, I found only one, the value of which is difficult to estimate.

If you are not familiar with the archives, go to http://www.naa.gov.au/ and click Name Search on the right. Searching "quassi" and "All Records" turns up just two, one of which is shown here:

Clicking the Request Copy link at the top right of the search results will permit you to order a copy of the record for AU$16.50. Worth the expense? I don't know.

Curiously, one can normally find immigration records at this site quite easily. Makes me wonder if there are other records which are mis-indexed but a few obvious searches (guassi, quas*, and the like) did not turn up anything useful.

The telephone listings (linked above) show a single Quassi in Trieste. There is a reasonable likelyhood that he is a relative. :)

Hi Bill,

I know this date is not of much help but I found in a 1929 Marriage Bann Index (wrongly listed as Citizenship index) for the town of Trieste a (possible) sister of Fulvio:

the index shows that Carmela Quassi di Carlo (daughter of the living Carlo) is listed at the Marriage bann Register number 1704 Volume 5.

image here:
https://familysearch.org/search/image/s ... 3D11233679

Unfortunately there are no images of the marriage banns, just the index..

It's a little bit strange that on the same year Fulvio was born a (possible) sister got marriage but I believe this date is correct being the lastname Quassi very rare...
There are also Quass and Quas in Trieste...
