Dear Brett,
I don't know if you got my previous email, so here we go again. I am Angelo Zani's daughter and thus the grand-daughter of Giovanni Zani (your great-grandfather's brother). Angelo was in the 2nd ww and stationed in Sydney, where he married Nancy Pearl Meleri on 8/7/42. After the war they returned to W.A. and lived with Giovanni & Louigia until their house was built on 2 acres sub-divided from the main farm. They had two children, Brian and Jocelyn (me). Brian married in 1967 and has four children, Natalie, Paul, Simon (Angelo) and Fleur.
Sadly the marriage didn't last. Natalie is married to Matthew Jennings and Simon is married to Kristy and they have two children, a daughter Trinity and a son Edon Angelo. The other two are still footloose and fancy free.
I have been married for 33yrs to Alastair Paterson and we have two children, a son Neale who is a solicitor, and a daughter, Anne-Maree who is an Early Childhood teacher.
We live in Lesmurdie Western Australia.
By the way Angelo (my dad) died on 18/11/82 from various complication arising from 2 ruptured aneurysms. Nancy is still alive (85 in July) and still living in the house in Margaret River.
I would love to see what info you have managed to unearth re the Zani clan, particularly history in Italy and Immigration to Australia, W.A. in particular.
I also believe that some of the Zani clan went to the USA.
Looking forward to hearing from you soon.
If you like email me at Jocelyn P
