I am Frank Michael Tedesco, born in Brooklyn, New York in 1946 and now a university professor overseas in South Korea. My grandparents on both sides emigrated to New York from Marsala, Sicily about 90 years ago. Family records were destroyed during the two wars so I am not able to reconstruct much of the past.
I have heard that a Tedesco worked for Leonardo da Vinci as an optical lens maker. Can anyone corroborate this?
