From Rob Thomson, Australia
We are looking for information on my Great great grandfather Francisco Passerini. He arrived in Melbourne on the Sir John franklin in 1857 having sailed from Liverpool.
We think his father’s name was Jakob and his Mother was Lucy and was born in Rivera about 1833. We have some information that the birth of a Franciscus Atonius Passerini is registered on Church records in Rivera on 7 Oct 1833, his fathers name was Jakob. We have no idea if this is our ancester or not.
Francisco married Jane Sim Stains (Lowrie) and had 5 children. He died in Melb in 1893.
Can anyone help with information and how we can confirm the authenticity of the birth registration?
