My grandfather also dropped a 'c' in his original surname of Cecchini, so now you and I have the same last name! I just joined Ancestry.ca today (August 6, 2012) and am interested in corresponding with anyone who has the same last name as me. My grandfather was Gino Chichino or Cecchini from Novalara, Italy born in 1886. He died in North Vancouver, Canada (where I still live!)
Please contact me if you have any information that I could use....
