Hello. I have been searching for more information on my great-great-great grandfather Giuseppi for months now and haven't made any major progress. The only information I have is that his son is Pietro (Pera) Laneri, born in 1861, in Coli, Piacenza, Italy.
I'm guessing that Giuseppi was also born in that area, but I can't find any information on it. Does anyone have any advice on where I can find more information? Or does anyone have more information?
Hi I found in Piacenza archive the miltary record abt:
Luigi Antonio Laneri born in Coli on 18 Mar 1839 , farmer, son of Pietro Laneri and Giovanna Ballarini;
maybe the father of your Giuseppe was Pietro also, because his son was named Pietro second italian tradition... and in this case Luigi Antonio could be a brother of Giuseppe... you can try therecords in the Coli Civil records by LDS microfilms: Registri dello stato civile di Coli (Piacenza), 1806-1929 Births, marriages, banns, deaths, ten-year indexes, supplemental records https://familysearch.org/search/catalog ... %20Library regards, suanj
That's very helpful, thank you suanj. May I ask how you accessed the military records? From what I understand, those records have a lot of information. Do you think I could search for Pietro Laneri and possibly find information on his parents? Hmmm.
