Perhaps you mean Frazione Poia, Comune di Lomaso, Provincia di Trento, Regione di Trentino-Alto Adige/Südtirol, Northeastern Italy

According to this Wikipedia entry for Lomasso ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lomaso ), "On January 1, 2010 it merged, with Bleggio Inferiore, in the new municipality of Comano Terme."

Comano Terme's website: http://www.comune.comanoterme.tn.it/

What is a Frazione? See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frazione

The Italian telephone dirctory lists several Bassetti's in the area: http://www.paginebianche.it/execute.cgi ... mano+Terme

The surname Krorfti is a bit odd, not the least becasue the letter "K" in the Italian alphabet is reserved only for foreign words. Do you have any alternate spellings?

Thank you for all the info regarding Poia. I will check out the sites that you sent.
Regarding the spelling of Krorfti I too thought it was a very odd spelling for Italy. I just learned from my mother's birth certificate that that was my grandmother's maiden name. I am wondering if perhaps that would be from the Austrian/German side of lineage because I am coming up with nothing regarding that name.
New to this site, but I think it will be very useful for my future.
Thanks for your reply.

Kroft - without the second "r" or the "i" appears to be a strongly german name; the "i" may have been added at some point to give it an Italian-like ending.

The extra "r" may simply be a typo introduced at some point in the past.

It's all guesswork, or course. I did not see a single entry of any kind on ancestry . com for either Krorft or Krorfti.

With the name Bassetti, you are almost certainly looking at Poia-Godenza, Trentino

I have strong links with this area, and I have Bassetti's in my tree. If you give me names, I will see if they appear. I am in the middle of doing extensive research into that area (mainly Lundo)

Hi,

My dad is from Lundo and is a Bassetti. His dad married a Sara Bottesi (from what I remember) and his first cousins are also Bassetti's in Lundo. Their old house was next door to the Lundo church.
