My mother Angela Grace Pifer (maiden name - Shock)
was one of 5 children (Sharon Francis Shock , Charles Winston Shock & Angela Grace Shock .
as well as twin infant daughters that passed away
to Joseph Winston Shock & Mary Catherine (maiden name - Rose). (my grandparents)

I have been told that the MOTHER of
Mary Catherine (maiden name - Rose) Shock
may have a Maiden name SERIO,
was born in Sicily.
Immigrated From Italy to the USA when she was pregnant with Mary.
I have March 1, 1924 as a date of Birth for her.
She passed away according to social security death index
on September 21, 1991

She had a brother "Frankie" unknown if same father/ lastname
My Family tree stops at just my maternal grandmother
Mary Catherine (maiden name - Rose) Shock
as i have no traceable/verifiable data to use
I would greatly appreciate any help. Thank you in advance

I am an adoptee that found a miracle on Dec. 12, 2014 after 27+ years searching
with only my mothers date of birth and description.
I found 2 half sisters and a half brother. sadly my mother had passed a year before i found them
PLEASE help me fill in the blanks.
God Bless

Welcome to the forum! :-)

If this is your grandmother's information, you can request a copy (for a fee) of her Social Security Application (SS-5), which should have the names of her parents...

Mary C Shock
United States Social Security Death Index

Given Name:
Middle Name:
Birth Date:
01 Mar 1924
Event Date:
21 Sep 1991

To request the SS-5 from the Social Security Administration... ... t/main.jsp
