surname- Schiappa

Post by Tob1GFC » 12 Dec 2005, 11:34

My name is Tobi, I was recently told by my parents that my extended family is not my true extended family- I was told my real last name is Schiappa and that my father has lost touch with all his relatives from the Schiappa family...I am left in the dark about my true heritage and true family. If anyone has any information on the surname Schiappa I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks

If you go to http://ssdi.rootsweb.com and put in the surname Schiappa and search, you will find 126 people in their database with that last name.

It seems as if there has been some event to splinter your family. Only you can evaluate how truthful the information is you are being given. If you want to pursue this start with what you know. Do you have a copy of your parents marriage records? In many states you can get this document without their permission or them even knowing. This can be a starting point in researching your family history.

You don't give any dates or places, so if you google state vital records (example Virginia vital records) and look for a state site you will find information on how to order records and who can. Many states will not let you order records if you are under age 18.

Tobi, I am currently researching some members of the Schiappa-pietra family. I often find the name truncated since it's so long. They have a family foundation in Italy where you can access biographies online. The feedback I received was that the name is a very difficult one even for Italians. Some of the family line migrated to Peru and then on to the US. The line I am tracing returned to Italy in the 1900's and died out. I hope this info is helpful.
