Total Stand Still. Surname MASI

Postby Wolfmyjic » 15 Jul 2003, 01:57

Hi. I'm at a total stand still. I'm looking for info on the surname MASI.

I know that Nicholas MASI came to the USA before 1920s. He married Loretta and had two children by 1920 census.

I don't have ANYTHING else to help me with where he came from, other than that and that he 'might' have a sister named Nicolet (spelling?) and that his surname could have possible been DeMasi before coming over.

Any help ANYBODY might could offer would really help. Thanks!!

There are about 40 Nicola Masi and 12 Nicola De Masi in the ellis island records but perhaps a review of those that fit in with your date lines may prove helpful. The research may be difficult but it can also be rewarding. Peter

Wolfy, I just referred another member to a magazine article, which seems coincidentally timely (divine guidance?). The magazine is NIAF Ambassador, Summer 2003 issue, and the article concerns a barber shop founded by Bruno DeMasi who came from Calabria almost 40 years ago. An obvious time difference from your ancestor's arrival, but the point of origin--Calabria--might be a place to look.

Verena what are you up to ?? You are flooding this forum with your obviously business genealogy and not an individual looking to research their personal familiews. This is not a forum for genealogy consultants....take a walk if you are in business. Peter

Thanks for that compliment on "young lady". I am 46. How old are you? AND - Peter, WHO ARE you? I don`t think I am interfering. The things you tell me are things I already know. I want to go further, but seems you are attempting to stop me. You can`t. Others are more cooperative. You seem to be the only one that is using the board to profile yourself. If you don`t like my notes then please just don`t answer my notes anymore.

If you are 46 then you are not too swift in genealogy so may I suggest you take a course in genealogy and then get back to me. You know little> Peter

Wolfy, I am new to this site and was intrigued by your post as my maiden name is DeMasis. My grandparents were from Villa Santa Maria, Spoltore. I don't know if there have been any changes in the spelling of the names but it is interesting. Lilliana

Hi Wolf: sure Masi surname is real.. In Italy is very diffused in all region.. Your ancestor Nicola Masi probable misspelled on ellis island, or just spelling, but for better search, please let me known other data, exemple: first name of first son Nicola(normally as first name of father Nicola)... also, marital status of Nicola in emigration's year..more:possible maiden name of Loretta..ny info are very important!!!

Raffaella questa qua Lillliana no dovrebb'essere in qusto foro. Wolfy e una persona che questa lillliana ha tentato communicare non e che vuoleva una risposta da noi vuoleva una risposta da quelle sc... piu sopra. Sta mischiato e meglio lasciare qui nel vento girando girando. Peter
