Paniale - Pezzi Family

Postby rrellick67 » 14 Feb 2011, 00:41

I am looking on information of the history of two family names that were from Italy.

First one is Antonio Paniale. He was born September 8th 1905 in Borgo D'ale. I can't confirm the following, but I believe his mother was Domenice Adorno and is brother was Giuseppe Paniale. They all moved to the Blairsville, PA area.

My second family I wish to research further is Antonio Paniale's wife Gina Pezzi. I know a bit more about her. Her brothers name was Chester Pezzi. They both moved to the Blairsville, PA area. Their parents are Cesare Pezzi and Selene Culatina. I believe Selene's father was Giovanni Cultatina. I believe they all come from the San Martino area.

Any direction you can lead me would be greatly appreciated. Let me know if you need more information and I will provide what I can.

Thanks,
Ryan Rellick

Hello and welcome to the forum-

Here is your ancestor in the social security index

PANIALE, TONY 07 Sep 1905 Mar 1981 75 15717 (Blairsville, Indiana, PA) (none specified) Pennsylvania SS #206-05-1088

Ordering his application for his social security card should yield his parents' names. The cost is $27 with the social security number

http://ssdi.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/ssdi.cgi

It can be ordered either by mail by generating the letter from the website

or over the internet with a credit card at the following website:

https://secure.ssa.gov/apps9/eFOIA-FEWe ... t/main.jsp

ANIALE, GINA 19 Aug 1908 15 Oct 1989 (V) 81 15717 (Blairsville, Indiana, PA) (none specified) Pennsylvania SS# 198-20-1453

based on Antonio and Giuseppe's passenger lists, their mother does appear to have been Domenica Adorno

Ailoche, Bianzè, Borgosesia e circondario, Borgo d'Ale, Borgo Vercelli, Boccioleto 1905 FHL INTL Film 1693406

This roll of microfilm available for rental from a local family history center has only one year of records on it. The 1905 records for the town of Borgo d'Ale are supposed to be on this film.

that microfilm comes from the following:

Registri dello stato civile di Vercelli (Provincia), 1800-1913

You could try sending for Antonio's birth record since you have his date of birth and his mother's name. Possibly you could get his father's name from the town just by emailing them with the date and mother's name.

mailto:borgo.dale@reteunitaria.piemonte.it (no spaces in the email address)
