In Reply to: schiavo surname revealed by Michele Schiavo of 65

Dear Michele,

My paternal ancestors all came from a tiny village Bratto in North West Tuscany near Pontremoli.On the female side for many generations ( certainly back to mid 18th century) I had ancestors with the surname SCHIA.I think originally they were travelling merchants but I'm not sure.
Could these be connected in any way with your family SCHIAVO?
lOOK FORWARD TO HEARING FROM YOU.

Best wishes John.
