I have finally been able to pull Giacomo Pera’s family together, and I am so excited about it!
The information that I have includes all seven children that were claimed by Maria Pera. I want to thank everyone who helped me with this information!
Giacomo Pera was born on September 10, 1943 in Piana Crixia, Savona, Liguria, Italy. His parent’s names are Pietro Pera and Rosa Panzone. I am still looking for more information for them, and feel certain that I will find it!
Angelia Maria Chiarlone was born on April 11, 1845 in Piana Crixia, Savona, Liguria, Italy. Her parent’s names are Stefano Chiarlone, son of Antonio Chiarlone, and Maria Delpiazzo, daughter of Francesco Delpiazzo. I will be researching these parents, too.
The children of Giacomo (Jacob) and Maria (Mary):
-Pietro Antonio Pera, born April 19, 1868 in Piana Crixia, Savona, Liguria, Italy. I am still unsure when and where he died.
-Vittorio Steffano Pietro Pera, born March 23, 1871 in Piana Crixia, Savona, Liguria, Italy. This is my 2nd great-grandfather, Steven Victor Para. He died April 13, 1942 in Bolivar, Hardeman County, Tennessee.
-Antonio Mario Pera, born September 26, 1874 in Piana Crixia, Savona, Liguria, Italy. I am unsure when and where he died.
-Giuseppe Pera, born February 27, 1877 in Borgata Molina, Torino, Piedmonte, Italy (although his birth was recorded in Piana Crixia, Savona, Liguria, Italy. CLICK HERE for previous post). This is Joseph Para. He died April 25, 1958 in Memphis, Shelby County, Tennessee.
-Peter G Para, born April 4, 1882 in Tennessee (exact location unknown, could be Memphis). He died in October of 1867 in Olive Branch, De Soto County, Mississippi
-Rose Lena Para, born September 17, 1883 in Tennessee (exact location unknown, again could be Memphis). She died September 15, 1908 in Memphis, Shelby County, Tennessee.
-Mamie Para, born in April 1889 in Tennessee (probably Memphis, as this is close to the family first appearing in the city directories). She died October 3, 1969 in Memphis, Shelby County, Tennessee.
I was able to find the information from a cousin named Marlo when she began linking the Pera/Chiarlone marriage.If you feel like trying to find your Italian ancestors, click on this link: http://antenati.san.beniculturali.it/
