The Gloucester Daily Times has the obituary for our Paul Frontiero’s father-
Paul F. Frontiero, Sr., 86
01/14/2012 2:00 AM
GLOUCESTER — Paul Francis Frontiero, Sr., 86, of Gloucester, passed away on Friday morning, January 13, 2012, at the Addison Gilbert Hospital.
Born in Boston on May 3, 1925, he was the son of the late Joseph and Anna (Lovasco) Frontiero. During World War II, he had served in the U.S. Navy from 1943 to 1946 as a Seaman 1st Class and Boatcoxswain.
Paul was very proud of his service and had fought in numerous campaigns including landing Marines in the first wave of the invasion of Japan where prisoners from six nations were waiting for them on the docks. For his service he was awarded the American, Asiatic and Pacific medals, Philippine Invasion and Liberation medal, Japan Occupation and Victory medal with three Battle Stars.
As a young man, Paul began fishing with his father and had worked on many boats as an engineer, cook and doryman. He later gave up fishing to raise his three boys and began his career as an artist. Paul was an accomplished artist and his works hang in many private collections around the world.

Here’s a link to “Ciaramitaros of Terrasini.pdf
Peter also writes-
Regarding the chart, I can provide a chart like that starting with any Ciaramitaro (and their spouses) born in Terrasini before 1911 for which there is a baptism record published. So, if someone has an ancestor other than the Carlo show, I can send a chart.
you might also want to mention, most of the documents for Terrasini (and other nearby towns) are now online
this link shows terrasini books
click on Palermo at the top and it will show the other towns. Terrasini is closely linked to Cinisi and Carini
and also had a lot of immigrants from Partinico, Prizzi and Monreale.
