Hi! I am researcing my Parisi roots as well and I know my Parisi relatives came from Sicily and wound up in the Bronx as well. My great Grandmother Concetta Parisi married Vincenzo D'Amato and they emigrated to Chicago area before winding up in the Bronx. I grew up there as well and vaguely remember uncles who would visit. I hope this helps you, for I am at a standstill with my research. Please feel free to email me, maybe we have relatives in commmon.
