    My grandfather’s name was Florindo Bassani, birthdate 19 Jan, 1881 from Arsie, Provincia di Belluno, Veneto, Italy and my grandmother was Caterina Ester Bassani (may have also been her maiden name) and from the same area of Italy, birthdate 24 August, 1890. I would appreciate any imformation (in Canada).

    My Great Grandfather’s name was Francesco Biglia. His obituary says he was born in Arsie, Italy. His birth date was October 9, 1884. We have no other information on him before his arrival to the US on September 13, 1902.
    We would appreciate any information you might have of him and/or his family.
    Thank you,

    My grandfathers name was Giovanni Vittore Rech born May 6, 1878 and his fathers name was Pietro Rech born June 23, 1853. Any information about my family would be greatly appreciated. I think they accidentally changed the surname to Reck when he came to the United States. Thank you

    Received the following letter of the Anagrafe of Arsie on 23 March 2015:

    Ho visto la Sua richiesta ma devo dirLe di non poterla soddisfare in quanto i registri depositati nel nostro archivio partono dal 1872 e NON prima (anche perchè l’Italia così com’è oggi non esisteva).
    L’Ufficiale d’Anagrafe di ARSIE’

    Translation: I saw your request but I have to tell you not to be able to meet as the registers deposited in our records start from 1872 and NOT before (because Italy did not exist as it is today).
