Hi Van Buskirk,

Please tell me more about your family.
Where do you live now?
My family came to Chicago in 1905, and I live in a nearby suburb.

Did you check my website, Peasani di Nicosia/
I'll send you a link if you need it.

Ciao, from Messina38@aol.com

Linda, after reading your email message to Buskirk, I noticed you are from Chicago. My Family also came to Chicago in the early 1900 and moved into the Bridgeport area.

Many are still in Chicago. My Salvatore (RIP), his brothers Ron, Nick and sister Barb. They all have kids. Some of the other names in our Family are Biang, Polito, DeGrazia, LaPorte. My aunts still speak and visit our Cousins in Nicosia. I will be visiting them soon. I am going to try to continue my research but I dont have the time. I wish there was a service that I could pay to track the tree for me.
