This family is the correct family. You are an angel in disguise. Can you tell me of how you came to study these folks? Are you connected in some way?
Yes there were Pierini's in Creighton and Lively, ON. Laurence Enzo Pierini lives in Lively presently but they came from Creighton. Apparently they worked in the mines for many years. He is the son of Mary & Rinaldo.
Mary and Rinaldo had aproximately 21 live births I am told. Have not had much luck pinning down info.
Can you tell me where I might find the article on early Italians in Copper Cliff?
I will tell you my connection. Francesco (Frank) TRACANELLI and Rosa - whom I had yet to discover her maiden name were my great grandparents. I know they came to Canada about 1904. They came on a ship that carried cattle. Apparently that ship was disabled in transit by a whale's tale. I know that Primo - who was my grandfather and sister Mary came with them. Another sister Onorena was born here in Canada. Little things come back to me as I think of them. Would really like to get into a discussion with you. Are you on ICQ? This is really exciting news.
