For connecting family members and sharing history of the Paolone family of the Molise region of Italy.

About Me...

My name is Michael Palone III, and I am the great-great-grandson of Carlo Paolone. I was named after his son (my great-grandfather). Michael Carl. My grandfather, Michael raised his family in Batavia, New York- a small city located 30 miles west of Rochester.

For reasons not known, the spelling of the family name was changed in my grandfather's generation to "Palone."

My father was also named Michael, and like many in the family was born without a middle name but adopted the use of his Catholic confirmation name and was known as Michael Dominic Palone, Jr (1935-1983). Yes, the family seemed to lose track of the generations, and I was the fourth "Michael" born as a decendent to Carlo.

A special thanks to all those who have shared information, photographs and their time to help me in my efforts.

It is my hope that this site will help more of us Paolone's reconnect and share information about our families.
