My ancestors were from Contessa Entellina, Sicily and were of Albanian descent. I have been able to trace my actual Clesi bloddline to the early 1600's there in Contessa..
I'm looking for details/info from before their immigration to Sicily. It's likely they came from Croya, Albania but I'm not really sure. Does anyone know of the Albanian Clesi history?
