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
Hi Peter, you make a great job here!!! Sure I know the Italian history, but you know that one of the e'migre's in USA and know to move in this sense. , I and Peter are good friends and are happy for having known it on line.. to times its character takes the windward with someone... but he is too much Bravo...I am useful of this message in order to say to all that I find myself well with all you, and I ask you excuse for my errors in English language... regards to all from Italy, suanj
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
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!

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!!
