Italian and Latin Names
Parish records, from which most of this information comes, is primarily written in Latin, while civil records are primarily written in Italian. Names that have only been observed in Latin but have either been converted to Italian or left in Latin are rendered in italics.

Giovanni Giacomo GIUMINI1 (~1687-<1748)

December 20131. Giovanni Giacomo Giumini1 is the earliest known so far of our Giumini family in Giumaglio, Ticino, Switzerland. He married Giacomina Piezzi and had at least three children.[Cen 1741] After Giacomina's death, Giacomo remarried to Giovanna Maria Rusca of the town of Cevio, 8 kilometers upriver.[Cen 1748] All together Giacomo had at least four children:

11. Giacomo Pietro Giumini2 (9) Nov 1710 (1748-1760) (38-49)
12. Giovanna Maria Giumini 18 Jun 1721 (1752-1760) (31-38)
13. Maria Domenica Giumini 13 Oct 1731 --  -- 

14. Maria Giuseppa Giumini 25 Feb 1743 --  -- 

In 1741, eldest son Giacomo Pietro2, his wife, and their first son Giacomo3 lived together at the family home in Giumaglio.[Cen 1741]

Giacomina (Piezzi) Giumini apparently died between 1741 and 1742. She was in her late 40s.

Giovanni Giacomo Giumini died between 1742 and 1748. He was likely in his early 60s.

Giacomo's widow Giovanna Maria and their younger daughter Giuseppa, age 5, were enumerated together in 1748. Daughter Domenica lived with brother Giacomo Pietro and his family that year.[Cen 1748]

Giovanni GIUMINI

December 2013X. Giovanni Giumini is of the same generation as Giovanni Giacomo Giumini1 and lived in Giumaglio, Ticino, Switzerland. He had at least two sons, the younger of whom married Giacomo's daughter:

X1. Giovanni Ludovico Giumini Mar 1728 1761-1769 (33-41)
X2. Giovanni Antonio Giumini 25 Mar 1732 --  -- 

Giacomo Pietro GIUMINI2 (1710->1748)

December 201311. Giacomo Pietro "Pietro" Giumini2 was born on November (9), 1710, probably in Giumaglio, Ticino, Switzerland. He married Maria Maddalena Sartori2 and had at least one son:

111. Giovanni Giacomo Giumini3 2 Sep 1740 22 Mar 1802 (61)
(11X.) Giuseppe Antonio Giumini --  (< 1786) -- 

After Pietro's and Maddalena's marriage, they lived with Pietro's parents through at least 1741.[Cen 1741]

Giuseppe Antonio is possibly a son based solely on the close age of his son Giuseppe to those of Giacomo's children.

In 1748, after Pietro's father's death, Pietro's 16-year-old sister Domenica lived with his family while his widowed stepmother and half-sister lived elsewhere in town.[Cen 1748]

Giacomo Pietro Giumini died between 1748 and 1760. He was likely in his 40s.[Cen 1760]

Maddalena carried on after her husband's death and son Giacomo and his young family lived with her through at least 1776.[Cen 1760-1776]

Maria Maddalena (Sartori) Giumini likely died between 1776 and 1795.[Cen 1795] She was likely in her 60s or 70s.

Giovanna Maria (GIUMINI) CERINI (1721-<1760)

December 201312. Giovanna Maria Giumini was born on June 18, 1721, probably in Giumaglio, Ticino, Switzerland. She married Giovanni Pietro Cerini (II) and had at least two children before her early death:[Cen 1748]

121. Maria Giacomina Cerini 25 Aug 1744 --  -- 
122. Giovanni Pietro Maria Cerini (III) 28 Dec 1752 (1752-1760) (<7)

Giovanna Maria (Giumini) Cerini died sometime before 1760 while in her 30s.

After Giovanna Maria's death, Giovanni remarried by 1760 to Maria Margherita Pedrotti.[Cen 1748] She was 14 years his junior and gave him 10 more children over the next 23 to 32 years![Cen 1748-1795, Bap 1778, 1782,1784]

Cerini Connection?
After reconstructing seven generations, I have yet to tie our Cerini family to this Cerini family through the Cerini line. Son Giuseppe Maria (Sr.) is the progenitor of the Cerinis of Tomales Bay, California.

Two children are not confirmed as Margherita's: Angela has not been found in the 1795 parish census and by the 1817 census was married. Felice was listed immediately following confirmed children Giacomo Pietro Maria, Maria Margherita, and Giovanni Antonio Maria, but his relationship was not recorded and he was nine years younger than the next youngest. Alternately, Felice could be the son of Giuseppe Maria (Sr.), whose wife and infant daughter were recorded in the same household.[Cen 1795]

Giovanni was named as the godfather, and likely namesake, of nephew Giovanni Maria Cerini in 1761.

Giovanni Pietro Cerini died about November 24, 1803, at his home in Giumaglio. He was buried at the Church of Santa Maria Assunta. Giovanni was 78 years old.

Maria Domenica GIUMINI (1731-)

December 201313. Maria Domenica Giumini was born on October 13, 1731, probably in Giumaglio, Ticino, Switzerland. She married Giuseppe Antonio Giumini, the son of Giovanni Giumini (relationship as yet unknown). They had six children:[Cen 1748A-C]

131. Giovanni Maria Giumini 15 Nov 1752 (1752-1755) (<3)
132. Giuseppe Antonius Maria Giumini 11 Sep 1754 (1754-1755) (<1)
133. Giovanna Maria Giumini 21 Oct 1755 --  -- 
134. Giacomo Pietro Giumini 22 Nov 1758 (1758-1760) (<1)
135. Giuseppe Giumini 22 Nov 1758 (1758-1760) (<1)
136. Giuseppe Maria Giumini 17 Dec 1759 --  -- 

Prior to her marriage, Domenica lived with elder brother Pietro, who based on their 21-year age difference was more likely a stepbrother. Their widowed stepmother and younger half-sister lived elsewhere in town after their father died.[Cen 1748A]

After their marriage, the Giumini couple started their family living with Giuseppe's elder brother Ludovico and the Giovanni and Maria Angela (Pozzi) Marchese family.[Cen 1748B] Their first two children died young and then around 1755 they moved to their own household and had four more children, including a set of twin boys who died young.[Cen 1748C]

Maria Giuseppa (GIUMINI) CERINI (1743-)

December 201314. Maria Giuseppa Giumini was born on February 25, 1743, in Cevio, Ticino, Switzerland, her mother's hometown, 8 kilometers upriver from Giumaglio.[Cen 1748] After her father's death, before 1748, Giuseppa lived with her mother in Giumaglio while her elder half-brother and half-sister lived together elsewhere in town.[Cen 1748]

Giuseppa married Giuseppe Maria Cerini, who was 8 years older (he 26 and she 18) and had been previously married with one son. They wed on January 20, 1760. Giuseppe's younger, unmarried brother Giacomo Pietro Cerini lived with them in 1760.[Cen 1760] Giuseppe and Giuseppa had one son:

-- Giovanni Pietro Cerini 13 Sep 1756 --  -- 

141. Giovanni Maria Cerini 4 Dec 1761 --  -- 
Cerini
The relationship of brothers Giuseppe Maria and Giacomo Pietro, sons of Giovanni Pietro Cerini[Cen 1760], to our Cerini family is as yet unknown.

Giuseppa was named as the godmother to Giovanni Pietro Cerini, the son of her late elder half-sister Giovanna Maria (Giumini) Cerini's widower, Giovanni Pietro Cerini, in 1761. Later that same year, Giuseppe and Giuseppa chose Giovanni Pietro Cerini as the godfather to their son Giovanni Maria. They named Maria Elena Rusca of Cevio, likely a relative on Giuseppa's maternal side, as his godmother.[Bap 1761]

March 2014

Nothing further is found in parish records on Giuseppe, Giuseppa, and sons Pietro and Giovanni after Giovanni's birth, suggesting the entire family died before the parish census of 1769 or that they moved to another parish.

Giovanni Ludovico GIUMINI (1728-<1769)

December 2013X1. Giovanni Ludovico "Luigi" Giumini was born in March 1728, probably in Giumaglio, Ticino, Switzerland. He married Maria Domenica Gaspari and had four children, only one of whom survived, before her death. Afterward he married Giovanna Giacomina Gasparini and had two sons, the first of whom died in infancy.[Cen 1748A-B]

Brothers Ludovico and Giuseppe were first enumerated in 1748 with the Giovanni and Maria Angela (Pozzi) Marchese family. Soon after, Ludovico married Domenica, who was 6 years his senior, and she was added to the household. Similarly, his brother married and their growing family was added as well.[Cen 1748A] Between 1754 and 1755, separate households for Ludovico's and Giuseppe's families were amended to the parish census,[Cen 1748] which, in 1760, it is evident that they lived next door to one another.[Cen 1760] Ludovico and Domenica's three younger children were not enumerated, indicating that they had died before the household was added.[Cen 1748B]

Maria Domenica Gaspari died sometime after the household was added and before 1758. She was only in her 30s.[Cen 1748B]

Ludovico remarried to Giacomina and she and their first son were added to the household.[Cen 1748B] In 1760, only Ludovico, Giacomina, and Catterina were counted.[Cen 1760]

A log entry of 1758 identified "Gio Luigi Giumino" as "vice watchman of the public" (vice camparo public).[Medici 42]

Giovanni Ludovico Giumini died sometime between the conception of his youngest and 1769. He was in his 30s.[Cen 1769]

Giacomina was named as the godmother and apparent namesake of Maria Giacomina Piezzi in 1767.[Bap 1767]

Giacomina and her young son Carlo continued on[Cen 1769], but Giacomina may have died by 1776, when Carlo, then about 14 years old, was counted alone.[Cen 1776]

Giuseppe Antonio GIUMINI (1732)

December 2013X2. Giuseppe Antonio Giumini was born around March 25, 1732, probably in Giumaglio, Ticino, Switzerland. He married Maria Domenica Giumini, the daughter of Giovanni Giacomo Giumini1 (relationship as yet unknown). They had six children:[Cen 1748A-C]

Brothers Ludovico and Giuseppe were first enumerated in 1748 with the Giovanni and Maria Angela (Pozzi) Marchese family. Soon after, Ludovico married and his family was added. Similarly, Giuseppe married probably in 1751 and his growing family was amended.[Cen 1748A]

Between 1754 and 1755, separate households for brother Ludovico's and Giuseppe's family were amended to the parish census,[Cen 1748] which, in 1760, it is evident that they lived next door to one another.[Cen 1760] Giuseppe's two younger boys were not enumerated in the new household, indicating that they had died before it was added. They had four more children, including a set of twin boys who died young.[Cen 1748B]

Either or both Giuseppe and Domenica may have died by 1769 when son Giuseppe Maria was enumerated living with one illegible elder.[Cen 1769]
