Hi Carole, The folks at Commune di Pieve di Cadore have come through with a response. It looks awfully interesting (wish I could read Italian). I originally sent two requests and included four of the stamps you sent me (two in each request). They combined the requests and returned their response with three of my stamps unused and enclosed. Very nice people those Italians. Bottom line however, I think your stamp service expedited the entire process. I feel that making an effort to help out in even the most minor way paid off when the requests were prioritized. Yes, THE STAMPS DID IT!

Now however I am faced with the usual problem. Would you kindly translate the attached document (two pages)? I will fill you in on the England situation (James Blackwell) in another topic. Thanks for your interest.

OK Joe,
I'm doing it now for you... Iìm really pleased that our 'stamp service' helped out with a rapid answer.

I look forward to hearing about the search in England... that is intriguing!

Translation:

Subject: Request for information on Luigi DE MASO
With reference to your requests of the 11th and 18th of February 2009 regarding the above subject. The information that was requested has been sent to Mr. Joseph Blackwell at the same address as this has been sent.
To supplement the above mentioned letter of the 11.11.2008. I can add the following information.

It results that from this marriage there were six children

Thanks Joe - that's much better. I've added the last paragraph to the translation - that way it's all togehter for you - much easier to deal with and print.

Carole...Looks like I received a scolding Smile I'll contact the Padre next time.

Regarding the James Blackwell birth certificate request, I used skype and called them directly. I received the attached email response a while back. Really don't know where to go from here. Any ideas? Joe

Joe do you know the parents names of James?

I can't believe how wonderful Pieve is! My great-grandfather was born in Pieve in 1882 and all I have on him is his parents names. I wonder if I write to them if perhaps they may send information much like you received.


(By the way his name was Massimo Da Via, I wonder if he is related to your uncle Enrico listed on that document!)


Very Happy

James Blackwell's father was Samuel George Blackwell but according to some old records he went by the name of George. B: abt 1805 England.

Mother's name was Ann Swindells (I think). Very Happy

Don't have much on either of them really... Joe

This is all pretty interesting stuff James. I would definitely send a request to Commune di Pieve di Cadore. They have been very helpful. Not sure about Enrico. I'm sort of buried in all this new data. I do send my De Maso ancestry documents along to Piccioli's Family Tree, since he researched mostly at Valle di Cadore. He does add my data to his tree, so that might be another research possibility. Somehow I'm sure that my wife and your family are related. Joe

That's too bad. I found James born 1827 father William and mother Alice and maternal grandfather John Heston.

I did see differnt wives named Ann.......I'm going to take another look.

Yes, and there a thousand or so James Blackwell's scattered around the UK.

Maybe a vacation to Cheshire would solve a few things... Cool Lets see, a one pound note these days would cost about $35.00 American... Sad

I guess we'll skype em...
