I too have Mascari's in my line.  My paternal grandmother was Mariana
Mascari (born in St Louis March 12, 1887, married in Termini June 1902, and
died in Cleveland 1956). Mariana was one of 7 sisters. Mariana settled in
Cleveland while her sisters settled in Chicago, Cleveland, and Pittsburg.
Her sister Biagia married her cousin Michele Mascari and they had two
children in Chicago, Charles Mascari and Maria Mascari Cedrone. Michele
Mascari remarried and had 7 more children including a priest Rev Peter

My oldest Mascari ancestor is Paolo Mascari and his son was Saverio Mascari
(born abt 1785 and died March 6, 1855) who married Ninfa Vincenza Genovese
(died before 1837).  Maybe my Paolo Mascari is a grandson of John Mascari's
Paolo Mascari who was born in 1683?

Hi Scott, Paul and everyone researching the Mascari lines from TI.  I think
I've been in touch with almost everyone researching Mascari's offline.  Lynn
Venafro (of this list) and I have made common Mascari ancestor connections
at Giuseppe Mascari (1809-1897) & Rosa Calcagno (1822-1900).  I've searched
this line back through Salvadore (ca1787-1832) - Giuseppe (ca1742-1822) -
Vincenzo (ca1720) thanks to Laura's insight and the Allegati 1843 1713874
Doc 54 that helps break through several generations prior to the civil
records.  Lynn and I have also made connections with some of the Mascari
descendants who settled in Columbus OH, Erie PA and Pittsburgh PA.  I'd be
happy to share the historic lines with anyone interested. (Please contact me
offline at john_mascari at yahoo.com) Something that I would like to further
explore and understand is the road blocks that I have read about in earlier
posts concerning the local church.  I believe I recall reading that the
church will not allow viewing of their Baptism, Matrimonio & Morte records.
I would love to find a few more generations so that the earlier Mascari
connections may be made. Paul -I would love to see the document that
extended  Paolo Mascari (b. bet 1683 - 1718). I'm also very interested in
learning when the Mascari's arrived in TI and where they came from.  A book
named "Our Italian Surnames" by Joseph Guerin Fucilla p 108 notes that
Mascari surname may have roots from Albanians. It also notes that Mascari
may be related to mushkar or muleteer(a person who drives mules). Any
recommendations or shared knowledge would be greatly appreciated.  I hope
the discussion and sharing continues.  This TI community is one of the best.

Happy Spring everyone!
