Hi Sandy! Sorry for not getting back to you sooner. I'm not the official moderator of the site (Ellen Baca still is) and I'm unsure if she would have received your e-mail to adjust the site to add / reference the photos for the Pittsburgh Palangio's, I don't think anyone else has that ability to adjust the website. I am aware of several Palangio families that settled in Pittsburgh though, in fact I was just doing some research on a Felix Caste from Pittsburgh not long ago (birth name would have been Felice, I think the Caste was shortened from Castagna - a common surname from Frosolone / San Pietro in Valle). My e-mail is in the text chain below, please contact me and I can share what I have on Pittsburgh branches. Tony

Hello, I am a part of the Pittsburgh Palangio Family. I emailed some pics and information a few years back. Did you receive them? Would love to see the Pittsburgh Family album added to this site.
Thank you, Sandy in California

On December 29, 2016, Reverend Garfield "Gary" Palangio of Kitchener, Ontario passed away. He was 81 years old (a few days shy of his 82nd birthday), and was an ordained priest for over 50 years.

(excerpt from his obituary at http://www.lifenews.ca/announcement/704446...end-father-garfield):

Father Palangio is predeceased by his parents Corsino and Beatrice (nee Annett). Lovingly remembered by his brother David (Elin) of North Bay, his nephew Michael (Lisa) and niece Karen (Greg) Bullard, his aunt Rita Scappatura of Kitchener and uncle Michael Palangio of Montreal, plus many friends. Fr. Palangio professed his religious vows in the Congregation on September 8, 1953 and was ordained to ministerial priesthood on May 27, 1961 at St. Peter's Seminary, London, Ontario. Fr. Gary ministered as a Catholic educator at North Bay College (Scollard Hall), St. Jerome's H.S., and St. Mary's College, St. Mary's, Kentucky. In 1977 Fr. Gary acted as chaplain at Bishop David H.S. in Louisville, Kentucky. Fr. Gary undertook the role of Parish Pastor at St. Cecilia's Parish, Louisville, Kentucky and also Blessed Sacrament Parish, Burford. He was Associate Pastor at St. Mary's, Kitchener. Fr. Palangio performed administrative duties for St. Mary's, Linwood and St. Joseph's Parish, Macton. Fr. Gary studied at the Divine Word Centre, in London, ON and Corporate Ministry program in St. Louis, MO. In 2002, he retired to Resurrection Manor in Waterloo. Fr. Palangio held a variety of leadership roles within the Congregation, including assistant administrator at Resurrection Manor, Director of Missions, editor for the Resurrection Bulletin, House Superior for St. Cecilia's and Resurrection College House and was a member of a number of committees. Fr. Gary's life was a long, active and respected one. He was very interested in the roles of school chaplaincy, spiritual director and counseling areas of pastoral ministry. His many years of faithful service touched the lives of his students, brother religious, parishioners, family and friends during his many years of dedicated ministry. His love of people were among personal traits recognized by all who encountered him. We wish to express our gratitude to PeopleCare A.R. Goudie Kitchener and their staff for the care they provided to Fr. Palangio over the past five years.

It is with sadness that I must report that Jim Roy, a constant contributor to this forum, had passed away on June 28, 2016 in Ottawa, Canada. I was alerted to this via e-mail from Joe Palangio who heard the news from Robert Palangio.

While I could not find an obituary for Jim, I can say that he was the son of Ernest Roy and Ellen Palangio. Born in 1947, I understand that Jim had a career in southeast Asia working for an aid agency and met his wife there, and had two children. I am sure that there are others who read and contribute to this forum that may know more about him, and I welcome your thoughts and comments.

As a past contributor myself who has done (and continues to do) extensive research on the Palangio families that came from the comune of Frosolone and its neighboring hamlet (frazione) of San Pietro in Valle, I can only hope that I can pick up the mantle Jim carried and read through/contribute on a more constant basis for those coming here for information on those who immigrated from this small slice of Italy to places such as New Jersey, Rhode Island, Ontario, upstate New York, and many places in between. These immigrants with surnames such as (but not limited to) Palangio, Sardella, Fazioli, Mainella, Mastropietro, Colaneri, Fraraccio, Ianiro, Di Nezza, Paolucci, and Tasillo (just to name a few) contributed greatly to the expansion and growth of North America, and it is here that we honor and remember them and their ancestors.

As always I can be contacted at: tonyf23@optonline.net for any/all inquiries on these topics, and will strive to monitor the forum more closely on a monthly basis if possible.

The 1938 obituary of Cristoforo Fazioli of Troy, N.Y. who was originally from Frosolone, Italy indicates that one of his sisters was a Mrs. D. Panlangio (probably Palangio) of Somerville. His second wife was my second great Aunt, Catherine Winters. I'm presuming that he was related to the Palangio's by his sister's marriage. Would anyone know her first name and/or her husband's first name?

My Palengio is most likely Donata Palengio who married a Nicola Zampini. An ancestry member helped me discover this information as I am new and slow moving with unearthing ancestors. I will attempt to find more information. They were all from the Frosolone area and some were most likely, I should say that they were in the Knife making business. My grandmother, whom is still living, says that her father had a trade of Knife making. I think some relatives traveled to the United States and began the Imperial Knife business. Any correspondence concerning ancestry is great! I appreciate any and all information. I am happy to correspond.
