So nice to see that a Balistreri board has been started. My husband's mother is a Balistreri born in San Francisco. Her father was Pietro/Peter Balistreri, and her grandfather was Frank Balistreri married to Rosa Busalacchi. They born came to the US in the early 1800's. Peter and his parents were born in Sant'Elia. Frank's father was Pietro, and Rosa's father was Tomas Busalacchi. Interested in connecting with other Balistreri and Busalacchi families. Peter married a Bari in San Francisco, and her family was Bari and mother's side was Stagnaro. Tarantino, Amato, are other lines that married into the family.
