  1.  There are 2 De Marco/ Demarco lines in this family
  2. They are unrelated except by marriage and then their subsequent children
  3.  The spelling of De Marco, was most likely changed for immigration purposes
  4.   The 2nd line of Demarco comes in where Aunt Norma’s parents were both Demarco.
  5. And I believe Aunt Maggie may have married a Demarco as well?
  6. The cousins of this 2nd Demarco line are:
  7. Related to Tommy De Marco, Aunt Norma’s father, who was married toMary (Maria Demarco)-of the 1st lin
  8. Tommy Demarco’s sister Christina and her husband Gabriele DeMarco had Malmaison DeMarco on the Portobello Pier in the 1930’s
  9. They had a younger brother Carmine.
  10. Gabriele was an uncle of both sides of the Demarco line
  11.  Another Joseph DeMarco (who died 23/7/2010 ) and his brother Andrew Demarco
