Re: Any info on Surname Qafzezi (PIRO ??)

Mr.Rubis:

Thank you for your detailed email. I know it probably took you time out of your day and I appreciate your taking the time out to help me in my search. It was great information.

I understand what you are saying about the disconnect between the names following the pattern. I have no idea where Peters same into the picture. Thomas is shown on the census as Thomas Qafzezi (no mention of peters). Then the naturalization papers for Jennie (Thomas' wife) shows her as Jennie Campbell PETERS but then also has a letter stating that she wanted to augment the original papers to Jennie E. Campbell Peters Gafezi. AND, then of course it lists their son as Everett Piro. Unfortunately, my only link to how these things came about is no longer with me and that is my grandfather who raised me from a baby. I lost him in October of 2001.

I don't know the name of the church. I am speaking with my grandmother as I type (she knows little). She says that she went to a funeral at the church when the wife of Thomas' brother passed away. His name was Tacho (phonetically sounded) and his wife was something like (DeeDa or something that sounds like that)? She actually said that it was a strange service in the fact that there was food that she liked set up in the rear of the church (I have no idea about that). She said that the church was located in Summerville Mass and was an Albanian Church (supposedly this would have been in the early 1950's). Thomas was supposedly not affiliated with the church BUT Tacho (possibly known as James) was since I am being told that his wife would not have been able to be buried in the church had they not been affiliated.

I am going to my grandmothers (I call her mom because she and my grandfather raised me from birth). I am going to scan some pictures that they have and hopefully some of that will give me some info.

Thanks again for everything that you have provided to me.... I really really appreciate it.

Thom
