Hi, I am trying to start/create my family tree. And this is what I know from my mother. My mother's maiden name is DiMercurio. She has a brother-Vincent. Her grandparents (Guiseppi and Vincenza (maiden name Moceri)DiMercurio came over through Ellis Island around 1900. Guiseppi's mother's maiden name was Parisi and Vincenza's mother's maiden name was Palazzolo. Guiseppi and Vincenza settled in St Louis and had 13 children (not in birth order) Mary, Jim, Mike, Anthony, Buster (Sabastino), Joe, Stella (Stefana), Nora (Eleanora), Rose, Carmella, Grace, Pearl (Provadenza), and Sam (Salvator). Carmella, Grace, Pearl, and Stella are the only ones still living -- Nora recently passed. Vincenza had siblings but I only know a few of their names Pepino and Stefana. I am told they lived in Detroit and their family still live there. I guess my biggest questions are #1 does anyone have information on "my Moceris" and how far back can the bloodline be traced in sicily? #2 is anyone related to me that I don't know? #3can anyone fill in the missing pieces on the Palazzolos or Parisis? #4 does anyone have a Moceri coat of arms (I would like to see it)?
