I was able to get my Grandfather's birth record and as far as I can tell these are his parents. His name was Domenico Bressi and he born on October 28th 1883. He was from Rocella. I believe that he had a brother and two sisters. Any information about any of his family would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!! Her last name may also be Carito??
Since you know the comune(town) of your grandfather's birth, and the names of his parents, you can write to Roccella Ionica and request their marriage (atto di matrimoni) record, and their birth records (atti di nasciti).
Francesco's birth record should have a notation about his marriage which will confirm your grandfather's mother's maiden name.
Possible brother, also living in Seattle, Washington area?

Hello, I recently have been doing some family research and stumbled upon this post. My Great Great Grandfather's name was Nicola Bressi. He married a "Marie Bressi" / "Maria Bressi". They had many children. Their names were: Cosimo, Damien, Mary (or Tessie), Francis, Joseph, George, and Paul. They lived in Brooklyn New York. My mother recognized the address that you said Domenico visited. I think my family lived there at that time, which might mean that we're related. Do any of these names sound familiar? If so, would you by any chance know Nicola's mother/father's names? I can't track the family beyond Nicola. All help is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
