Hi Mary Ellen,
It's so nice to come in contact with another De Sessa. For years, before the Internet, I thought that I was the only one. My family comes from a small little town on the coast near Naples called Santa Maria di Castellabate. I visited there and stayed with my grandmother's side-The Malzones.
Yes, I would like to compare notes. I found that a famous man named "Sessa" printed the original Travels of Marco Polo. They lived near Venice. It would be great to compare notes. Stay in touch fellow "De Sessa". Let me know if you have more information about the family. I will ask my father about his uncles.
