Hi,
My grandfather was Anthony Como (changed name to Comer)b.1898 1st cousin to Perry Como the Singer. I would love more info about the family (I have very little). I do know that Grandpa's parents were Isadore Como Vincenta Chevarini They immigrated from Italy (supposedly). He had at least 1 brother Joseph (Gye) Como a sister Lucy. The whole family was from the Canonsburg/Pittsburgh area of PA. EMAIL ME at SSchu22739@aol.com since I don't check these pages very often. Thanks!

Victoria,
How absolutely wonderful to hear from another family member! I have been looking for a couple of years without nibble!
According to my calculations we are 3rd cousins once removed. Your Grandfather would have been 1st cousin to my G-Grandfather, Isadore Como who was a brother to Perry's Dad, Pietro.
If you would like to email me privately at SSchu22739@aol.com I would love to work together to track our family down! I will look forward to hearing from you:)

Your Cousin, Sharon Lantzy Wygant

Domenico Como was born in Palena, Italy on Feb 7, 1910 as the first son of Pietro Como and Lucia Travaglini. He immigrated to the US on Dec 21, 1910 at the age of 10 months with his mother and two older sisters, Basilica (b. abt 1902 ) and Giuseppa (b. abt 1905). Their destination was Canonsburg, Penna to meet their husband and father Pietro. The next son, Pierino Rinaldo Como, was born on May 18, 1912. And the last of the Como children, Vincent, was born about 1918. (Reference Ellis Island manifests and 1920 US census). Domenico Como died Nov 10, 1985 (SSDI records).

I suspect that Pietro Como, Perry Como's father, was the son of Domenicantonio Rocco Como b. Aug 16, 1842. Domenicantonio married Basilica Campana on Feb 23, 1873 in Palena, Italy. My suspicion is because of the given names of Pietro and Lucia's first girl child and the first boy child, Basilica and Domenico.

Dear Sharon, I think my cousin Vicki wrote the note to you. If you are related to us, I would also like to hear from you. Perry lived not too far and we have gone to several of his concerts and met him. My mother even brought a picture of my grandfather to him. Would love to hear from you.
