Hello My great grandmother was Letteria Magnesi who married Antonio Barresi. They were from Messina. They had 4 four children, Mary, Anna, Helen and Louis. Mary was my grandmother. Letteria had at least 3 sisters, one of whom died in the great earthquake of 1908 in Messina. I have more detailed information on the history of this part of the family tree if you are interested.

Hi,

Yes, I would be very interested, for I have traced my Barresi family to the mid 1700's. I do have 3 Antonio Barresi's listed, however not with a spouse. Do you know the names of his parents? Actually the name Helen stands out in my research? Did they reside in Brooklyn in the early 1900's, if so I believe I have their census and other documents?

I think we should compare notes! I have nothing prior to Antonio so I do not know his parents names. They lived in Brooklyn and also in Syracuse NY. I will have to chat with my Mom to get those dates clarified but I believe in Brooklyn from about 1930. My personal email is angetc@optonline.net.
Look forward to sharing!!

Hi again Janet,
I am quite interested in seeing if there is a link between my research and yours. My Barresi cousins are also waiting to hear! Please let me know the best way to contact you.
Thanks, Angela

Hi Angela,

What I coincidence I was just getting the ladder out to climb to a storage closet that holds some of my past research. See if you can find out the names of Antonio's siblings and parents and also his date of birth. Through my years of research I have copied down birth, marriage and death records of many Barresi's of Milazzo eventhough I didn't provide a connection, with the thought that one day there would be one. You can get back to me at Giovannajo@msn.com. Just make sure you put BARRESI in the subject line or I might think it's spam and not open the e-mail.

Angela,

I just briefly looked through many years of research pertaining to many different lines of my family. I would definitely need further information, for there's just too much research to go through.
