Marchesi Ancestors

The old Commune records which are in Latin are held by the Archivist at Poschiavo and are in Latin. The Marchesi family name has been traced in these records as early as 1452 and 1502, as well as Gervasi, Sassella, Costa, de Muletta, Ferrari, Barga and Paravicini. Further references to our name are fragmentary until the late 16th century. From that time, there are many records in San Vittore Mauro Church and also civic records in the Commune office of Poschiavo, where births, marriages and deaths of Marchesi family members have been listed since 1876. Today, the archivist maintains the old family records, as well as many other important historical documents in his office which is in the Tower in the Piazza, Poschiavo. The archive is supervised and checked regularly by the archivist and the inspectors of the State Archives to ensure that the documents are well preserved.
