I am trying to find information on my grandmother's family. The name was Guarnera and they came to America in the late 1800's. Her mother was Teresa Piraino and she married Augustino Guarnera. Her mother's parents were Lucia Sanzone Piraino and Giuseppe Piraino. They were from Termini Imerese. I know one of my great grandmother's brothers was Giovan Battista (John) Piraino and I believe he lived in New Orleans at one time.
I am also looking for my grandfather's family. His name was Michael Mesi and he was also from Sicily. But he was from Montemaggiore. His father was Andrew Mesi and his mother was Bernadette Cipolla. My grandfather was born August 7, 1871.
Thank you for any assistance you may have. Josie Daly
