de Santis ... origin: Switzerland !!!

Dear Searcher on "de Santis" Family !

Searching on my family "DESSENT" I found out that all the names DESSAINT(E)(S) - DESSENT(E) - DESSEIN(T) - DESSERIS are linked to the "de SANTIS" family ... and that all persons I know who have a rather complete family tree are "stopped" somewhere between 1600 and 1700 ! I managed to find out that the origin (I have in my hands a document that CLEARLY mention the change of the name and the origin !)of my family is the "de Santis" in the Switzerland Italian region called Grisons / Grigioni / Graubünden ... and I feel that I got even the explanation to why they left their village between end of 1500's and 1700 to go to Belgium + France + Germany (Great Britain and later USA, Australia, etc) ... Yet I have the feeling that before arriving into that region they came from main Italy. I am interested in establish a communication with all people searching roots in Italy and in Swtizerland on the "de Santis" but also on the "CARVOLINO" family who are connected ... I'll explain how by e-mail ! I am not very "forum minded" but I am EXTREMELY active by ICQ and e-mail. I can receive GEDCOM files. Please contact me on and / or ICQ 19623430 "Specialist". You can write in English or "en Français". Please let me know if you understand Italian ... I have some texts. Take Care ! Ivàn

P.S. Note that my family has a lovely active "DESSENT Cousins" website with plenty of pictures, information etc on our ancestors.
