i don't know about hogging but maybe you do. I agree with you wholeheartedly that Suanj is much more knowldgeable about Italy than I am and certainly has access to a lot more information than I do. This is why we are good friends. You know the old saying "water seeks its own level". Peter

The fact that his first name is Nicholas (Nicolo) might very likely indicate he was Arberesh, Masi is very common in some of the Arberesh comunes in Sicily.

There are 862 cities,towns, villages and hamlets in Italy having persons srunamed MASI and in Italy you need to know the townof origin in order to conduct genealogy so I hardly think that MASI winemakers are the answer. Just because they have a website does not mean they are related to the initial inquiry. Peter

Peter, I did not say that there was conclusive proof here, I said it is worth looking into, there are lots of names and history on that webpage. All avenues are worth pursuing, you know.

My G5 Grandmother DiMassa was from Trasacco, L'Aquila. In the original post, you had mentioned that Nicola may have had a sister by the name Nicoletta? I did see an Ellis manifest for a Nicoletta Masi who travelled to the US when she was 19. The person she travelled with was a Raffaele age 51 most likely her father heading out to Boston as their intended destination. Unfortunately it doesn't mention where in Italy they were from. The young man listed - age 10 "Rocco Antonio" could have been a brother also going to Boston. Do a further search on Raffaele and Rocco... and maybe you will find out where they originated from... and then take your research there. Also, do check out the Australian archives. http://www.naa.gov.au/The_Collection/recordsearch.html There were over 100 listed there. You can ask for further info on individuals (up to 5) by their online email... I don't think you are at a stand still... yet... Good luck!

First Name: Nicoletta
Last Name: Masi
Ethnicity: Italian
Last Place of Residence:
Date of Arrival: April 30, 1896
Age at Arrival:  19    Gender:  F    Marital Status:    
Ship of Travel: Belgravia
Port of Departure: Naples
Manifest Line Number: 0590 :D

Wolfmyjic, I sent you a private message. Fara San Martino, Chieti is a place you may want to look into.

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!!

~Wolfy~


Still looking?
