Surname help Giambarresi/Giambusso

Postby jennci » 23 Feb 2009, 16:31

My Giambarresi family came from Riesi and while researching I have found Giambusso and was wondering if it's the same family. Where can I find surnames in Riesi? I was originally thinking it was a simple mis-spelling but it also appears on naturalization and draft registrations.

Thanks

try the telephone directory for Riesi at www.paginebianche.it and put in the surname (one at a time please..and yes they do!) inthe first line and Riesi in the second line and click CERCA for all lsiting by full name,address and telephone numbers. Also helpful might be the name distribution website at www.gens.labo.net/en/cognomi for all of Italy. Just put inthe surname inthe upper left. =Peter=

Thanks for your help. I guess the main reason for my confusion is that so many Giambarresi mention a realative(brother, father etc.) named "Calogero" and the only one I find is Calogero Giambusso. BUT he does go to the same address in Boston as all the Giambarresi ???

In Riesi there are both Gaimbarresi and Giambusso. Keep also in mind that Calogor is typical Sicilian
