It will be next to impossible to determine the cultivar of a pear tree. Especially one of that age.
You can try to take pictures and samples to your local extension service. Depending on their resources, they may be able to do genetic analysis, but you may have to settle without knowing an exact cultivar, though the most common pear will be a "Bartlett" or Pyrus communis.
