From this site http://italiangen.org

NYC Marriage Index

Mazaresi Ignazio Oct 15 1905 Manhattan 22783
Maniscaler Serafina Oct 15 1905 Manhattan 22783

This may be a very bad spelling or transcription of their names...
How sure are you of their arrival in 1907?

If you think this is your grandfather, you can request this marriage record for a fee from NYC Vital Records...

EDIT: The correct record is posted below by Joseph Genduso!

Hi Alfred - All my family is from Resuttano. I have a lot of the records for the commune that I got through LDS microfilms and Ancestry.

I can send you a copy of Joseph's birth record from 1878. PM me. From the record I can tell this...

Name: Giuseppe Ignazio Mazzarisi
Born: 10 Nov 1878, 8:30 PM
Father: Alfonso Mazzarisi 27 yrs old
Mother: Crocifissa Rinaldi

I couldn't find Palma Macaluso in 1886. The only people born on 21 Nov 1886 in Resuttano (according to the records) were: Maria Alaimo and Andrea La Placa.

I'll check the years around 1886 for you.

If you have any other questions please contact me. I've been working on transcribing the town's records but haven't had much time to work on it lately.

BTW I have a Mazzarisi in my family tree: Crocifissa Mazzarisi born ~1812.

Alll the best, Joseph Genduso

Also from Tessa's NYC Marriage Post:

Serafina's last name would be Maniscalco. That's the way they spell it in Resuttano.

Is this your Joseph?

T.
That's great, this is my grandfather & Aunt Rose. She is the youngest daughter. I have my grandfathers info listed as the year prior "1878". My grandfather lived with my Mom & my brothers & passed on 4 May 1957. He came to this country & reversed his first name which is Ignazio & used Joseph which is his brothers name who also migrated to New York & lived in Brooklyn. I am trying to find out the names of his Parents & other siblings & if any family members are alive in Sicily.
Thank you for all your input, this is a wonderful piece of the history.
My grandmother Palma Macaluso is my grandfathers 2nd wife, his first wife, which I have no clue to her name, died after coming to New York & Palma Macaluso came to NY & were Married.

Do you know if he had a Social Security #? (you might find it on his death certificate)
If he had one, you can send for his Social Security application (for a fee) which will have the names of his parents and his place of birth...
