Re: Antonino (Antonio) Messina - Contessa Sicily to Brooklyn

Hi Jennifer, I haven't been sucessful in obtaining much information on my GGrandfater's side,Sebastiano Messina from Contessa who died in 1912 @ age 51. His mother was Caterina Rapisarda and father was Vincenza Messina. I don't get the impression that the previous generation was born in Contessa, but I could be wrong. On the other hand, I can trace my GGrandmother's maternal side back 6 more generations in Contessa. Since this is a small hill town and people rarely left unless immegrating to the US, I think it's likely that we are related.
