Tessi Surname

Post by silhouettecutter » 02 Jan 2015, 22:18

My apologies if this post is a duplication. I tried posting it once this morning but it has not appeared on the postings.
My Great Grandfather was Felice Bevenuto born in 1866 in Como, Italy. We believe he was abandoned at an orphanage. We thought this line was a dead end until I did the ancestry DNA and put it on FTDNA and had matches to some Italians from ARGENTINA. I am in the USA and since the man and his half sister both match up via DNA we have narrowed our most likely possibilities of our relationship to a Francisco Tessi from Como,Italy born in 1841.
Does anyone know anything about the Tessi name or how to find birth records for this period in Como ,Italy? Francisco Tessi married Josephina Bianchi (1854-) and lived in Argentina.
Any help would be appreciated.

here the certificate when Felice was put in the Como orphanage

I believe that Dongo birthplace could be a good trace for your search..
