Maria Filomena Peragina and Rocco Tetro

Below are the photos of Maria Filomena Peragina and her husband Rocco Tetro. Recently I had received notification from MyHeritage for ‘discovery matches’. In the tree of I. Tetro, Italy, were the pictures of Maria and her husband.

And here is how they are connected to our family tree. (everyone was born in Grumo Appula, Bari, Italy

Vito Luigi Civitano (1803 – 1836) married Isabella Elisabetta D’ Amico (1806 – 1874) (they were my 3x great grandparents) they had daughter

Rosa Civitano ( 1828 – 1891) and she married Giuseppe Peragina ( 1825 – 1896) they had daughter

Maria Filomena who married Rocco Tetro making her my 1st cousin 3x removed and Rocco the husband of my 1c3xr.

According to one family researcher on Ancestry the birth and death years for Maria was 1866 – 1928 Rocco was 1863 and some time after 1829. (this is undocumented)

    • I am not a payed member of MyHeritage so I can’t access to much of the information they periodically share. Like contacting this person in Italy. But it is wonderful to have these discoveries! Initially, I had them in my tree already but with no pics. That was a really bonus to share with family 🙂
