the truck stop your talking abouty, is that the Husky, with the big Canadian flag?
As for my ancestry, I haven't done much rersearch on it. I've been fortunate in that a book was written in 1976, celebraitng the Centanial of a City. In which they talk about the history of that city. Including its first habitants from the 1600's. Of which my ancestors were part of.
An uncle of mine came across somebody that had researched and filled in the blanks between those early settlers and us.
Right now I've got the links to the Italians Salvay from Pinerolo.
Being from Canada, I'm sure that you are directly descended from Pierre (probably Pietro) Salvay of Pinerolo, son of Giovanni Battista (or Jean-Baptiste, in French) Salvai/Salvay. Check out a Salvai/Salvay coat of arms below:
To answer your question, it seems like a very reputable website. The
site creator is not **SPAM** anything. If you scroll down to the
bottom of the following web page, he even lists all of his sources.
However, I wouldn't get that tatoo just yet. What you saw is not a complete coat of arms, it's just the shield part. We don't even know if it applies to all Salvais from Pinerolo or just to one specific branch.
When I find out more, I'll post it here asap. Please hold off on the tatoo until then.
FYI, to see the distribution of the Salvai name in Italy, please visit the sites below.
