Hallo, I'm Claudio Eccher some years ago, my family performed a research on our origin. The first person identified was a certain Gaspare Eccher, who lived in Castagne di Pergine, in the Province of Trento, at the end of sixteenth century. Before him it was not possible to find more ancient ancestors. Since then the family has lived in the neighbouring of Pergine. In early twenties some my grandfather's brothers went to United States where their descendants are now living.
