During the first decade of the twentieth century, three brothers, Carmine, Augustale and Francesco Cestari left the Comme of Marsico Nuovo in the region of Basilacata, Italy for the United States. This website contains my current research notes regarding our Cestari ancestors, descendants of Gianuario Cestari, other families of Marsico Nuovo, and the ancestors of those who married Cestari/Chester descendants. The work continues and you should expect the information found on this site to be changed, corrected, or expanded upon as new information is discovered.

 This site will be updated periodically


Please Note: Information on all living persons, as well as information on all of those of the most recent two generations (living and deceased) has been suppressed and will not be published on this website.
