Hello, I'm Angelo Peripimeno and I'm from Ognio. I found the message you posted on
Guarnieri.com. I know it's a late reply and you already have been to Italy
but I want to introduce myself and who knows? maybe one day you came back
again and see me. As you probably should know, there is only a famly tree in
the world named Peripimeno (if not tell me: it's an amazing story) so we are
certainly relatives. I'm gonna tell you something about me: I'm 28 and I'm
an electronical engineer. I work for a european network active in the field
of innovation and technology transfer. Such organization is hosted by the
local (I mean Genoa) chamber of commerce. I live in Ognio during the summer
and I like to spend there most of the weekends during the the year. For the
remaining time I live in Chiavari a small city (35.000 inhabitants) located
on the coastside (less than 25 miles far from Ognio). I'm very sorry not to
have met you during the time you stayed in Italy. I hope you enjoyed your
stay. Unfortunelly I travel a lot because of my work; I saw the date you
came here and probably at that time I was in Finland for a workshop.
What about your holidays? Did you find anyone of the Peripimeno's clan over
here? Very hard I suppose. Have you been in Ognio? Almost impossible to find
someone speaking English in such a small and elderly populated village.
There is only one woman, called Elsa who worked for the american embassy
and who is also an active member in the association "Liguri nel mondo",
translated "Ligurian people in the world".
She is a very nice person and also very intersted in collecting recovering
and promoting stories conceirning ligurian migration. If you are interested
I can give you her contact details.
I always spent lot of my time in Ognio as I was young boy and now I'm
quite involved in our little municipality as vice-major so I'm very popular
over there. If you had asked (I don't know how is your italian) local people
would have talked about me. I'm so sorry I didn't saw your message at the
wright time; it's incredible,everiday I spend hours on the internet and I
never thought about a simple search conceirning Peripimeno! It's funny how
you often have the information you are looking for just in front of your
eyes but you are completely blind!
If you need any additional information about our family or any other needs
don't hesitate to ask for. I know I could be a perfect stranger to you but I
would like to start a positive pen pal relationship to share our information
and life experiences.
Well, it's time to go back to work. Hopefully your e-mail address is still
on use and looking forward to hear from you soon.
Have a nice time,
P.S. I hope you understood my English. I never studied it. My knoweledge is
simply made by doing. I just improved it either during holidays I have been
spenting in foreign countries or for matters of work. I beg your pardon for
any possible misanderstanding.

: I will be visiting Italy next month, and I want to try to find my relatives. My great-grandfather, Giovanni Lagomarsino, and my great-grandmother, Caterina Peripimeno Lagomarsino, came to California from Ognio around 1890. My Italian-speaking skills are less than limited! Any suggestions on how I might try to find my relatives?
