Below is a fairly complete list of all those who have contributed to this website.  The Quagliata Family Genealogy Project would like to thank all of the family members who have so generously contributed time, information, documents, photos and hard work.  It's amazing to think that a few years ago, in 2001, when Richard Quagliata and I (Michael Quagliata) first published the project on the Internet, we only knew of our own closely related Quagliata families, the branch in Cleveland, OH and Louis Quagliata's branch, originally of Sant'Alessio Siculo, Sicily.  Now we know Quagliatas all over the world and most of those are fairly closely related - branched from the main tree in the last 100 years or so.  This webpage has really brought us all together.  Everyone we come in contact with loves looking at the photos, reading the stories and checking out Richard's Chart.  The work is largely done by family members who take the time to provide information, stories and photos.  Even on the rare occasions when we are contacted by other ancestry websites, they often comment on what a great website we have.  In our wildest dreams, Richard and I never thought we'd be able to reach the amount of people the website has brought to us.  Family members that visit tell us how appreciative and proud they are of the website.  Everyone that has contributed can feel a special pride in a job well done and well appreciated.  Thanks to all.

MICHAEL QUAGLIATA  (b.1953) - Michael is a great great grandson of Mario Quagliata (1843?-19??) through Mario's second marriage.  Michael is a member of the Chicago Quagliata family, but his branch is now located in Michigan.  He's the webmaster of this website and is responsible for updating the website with information sent in by contributors.  Michael was contacted by his distant cousin, Richard Quagliata, in 1999 and they began to piece together the family history.  Michael has contributed photos, documents and genealogical listings, as well as running the website.

RICHARD QUAGLIATA  (b.1955) - Richard is a great grandson of Mario Quagliata (1843?-19??) through Mario's second marriage.  Richard is a member of the St. Louis Quagliata family.  Richard contacted his distant cousin, Michael Quagliata, in 1999 and they began to piece together the family history. Richard has contributed photos, documents and "Richard's Chart" - the chart contains a complete genealogical listing of the current state of our information.

JOHN QUAGLIATA  (b.1940) - John is a member of the Cleveland Quagliata family.  They are from Sant'Alessio Siculo, Sicily.  With his contribution of a detailed family listing going all the back to the 1700s, John has helped us untangle some wrong conclusions and also helped to join up together three branches of the Quagliata family from Sant'Alessio.  Although John started contributing to our project relatively recently, in 2005, he certainly deserves special recognition on our contributors list.  He has done a tremendous amount work and spent many hours researching the family genealogy, using his knowledge and access to birth, marriage and death records from Italy.  Besides the huge job John did on his own branch of the family, he has generously found time to help out others with their family listings, including the NYC/Connecticut Quagliata family.  So a very special thanks to John.  Although it's certain we are related, it appears that John's branch meets the main tree at some point before Mario Quagliata (1843?-19??).

VITTORIO QUAGLIATA  (Milan, Italy) - Vittorio's family is from Caltanissetta, Sicily.  He currently lives in Milan and is a long-time contributor to our project.  This is the Vittorio quoted in the "Welcome" section of the main webpage.  He has corresponded with Richard and I about family history and is the man we go to when we need an Italian document translated.  Vittorio's research lead to the 2007 discovery of a very important booklet by Iana Quagliata which pushed our genealogy listing back to the 1500s to include Giovan Domencio Quagliata (1570?-16??), whose offspring included the great painter Giovan Battista Quagliata (1603-1673), the Quagliatas of Sant'Alessio Siculo and Forza D'Agro, and possibly all the other Quagliatas in Sicily. There's also a good possibility that Giovan Domenico ties together the mainland and Sicilian Quagliata lineages.  Vittorio's lengthy and continued support deserves special recognition on our contributors list and a special thanks.  Currently, Vittorio is working on a genealogy chart of his family.  It appears that their branch meets the main tree at some point before Mario Quagliata (1843?-19??).'s

IANA QUAGLIATA  (Monza, Italy) - Iana's family is from Forza D'Agro, Sicily.  Since our main tree is from Forza, Iana is most likely related to Mario Quagliata (1843?-19??), but at this time, we don't know the nature of the relationship.  Iana deserves special recognition on our contributors list and a special thanks for the very important research and work she contributed on the life of Giovan Battista Quagliata (1603-1673).  Her contribution pushed our genealogy listing back to the 1500s to include Giovan Domencio Quagliata (1570?-16??), whose offspring included the great painter Giovan Battista Quagliata (1603-1673), the Quagliatas of Sant'Alessio Siculo and Forza D'Agro, and possibly all the other Quagliatas in Sicily.  There's also a good possibility that Giovan Domenico ties together the mainland and Sicilian Quagliata lineages.  Many thanks to Iana for her important contribution.
