Hi John, have done a lot of research on that family. I too noticed the similarities in names and also that Mascari from Palermo in NO interacted with other Ustica families (Caezza). Problem is that the earliest Mascari records from Ustica pre-date the civil records so it becomes much more involved to find church records. Have you come across Vincenzo Mascari married to Angela Incorpora? They're my best bet for linking over to Palermo or TI.
