Lacchin crest My name is Rudy LACCHIN and I live in Gloucester, England. My father is Francesco LACCHIN and he was born in Santa Lucia di Budoia, in the Provincia di Pordenone (although before the boundary reorganisation in 1968 it would have been the Provincia di Udine). My grandfather was Lorenzo LACCHIN (1898-1960); my great-grandfather was Francesco LACCHIN (1868-1940); my great-great-grandfather was Giovanni LACCHIN.

My branch of the LACCHIN/LACHIN family are known as (“detto”) SCAZZOTTA. *:) My father Francesco (“Frank” or “Checchi”) and his two brothers Aldo and Angelo moved to the UK after the war and founded a family including, five children, ten grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.

My mother’s family are SIGNORA and they still live in Budoia at the crocevia with Via Julia.

My Godfather, Bepi Zambon “Crot”, owns a bar in Venice on the Strada Nova near Cà D’Oro. I also have cousins somewhere in Venice although I have lost touch with them. My father’s uncle Cesare GASTALDON used to run the Ristorante Bella Venezia. His wife was Teresina LACCHIN and they had two daughters, Malli and Franca.

Other names in my family are QUAIA and PIZZINATO on my father’s side and DEL ZOTTO, CARLON, ANGELIN, CAPOVILLA and SCARINGI on my mother’s side. I believe we also have some VARNIER, SERAFIN, CELANT, GOTARDO, PILOT, BRAVIN and DELLA FIORENTINA on my father’s side, but unfortunately I lost contact with my friendly Italian researcher several years ago and my investigations came to an end.

If you share any of my family names or think you may be related to me, please get in touch. My Italian is reasonable but I suspect your English is probably better! To contact me, please fill out this contact form or email me and I’ll get back to you as quickly as I can.
