I thought there were Tracanelli families in the Britt area. Additionally, there were Pierini in Creighton and Lively ON
Rinaldo Pierini, son of Giuseppe and Enrisa Baseci (spelling?) married Maria Tracanelli, daughter of Francesco and Rosa Tondo in Sudbury 22 April 1912. This marriage is in the Ste-Anne-des-Pins repertoire, but the couple are listed as Rinaldi Perini and Maria Fracanelli. I may have Rinaldo's obituary somewhere, but I do not know where they were from.

Additionally, there is a mention of a Sam Pierini in an article on early Italians in Copper Cliff. This Sam moved to the Timmins area. I am not aware of any link to Rinaldo. I have wondered where they came from. My guess have always been Fano or Udine, but I really have no clue.
