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

  • Back to New York

    A family wedding brought me back to New York for the first time in a while. After the wedding, we were able to make a sidetrip to Lyons, NY and visit the Elmwood Cemetery- the final resting place for my great-grandfather (mio bisnonno) and many other family members. Before heading back home, we were able to make several other cemeteries and before we were done, had accounted for four generations of my direct ancestors:

    Michael Palone Jr (my father,): Grandview Cemetery, Batavia, New York

    Michael B Palone (my grandfather): Elmwood Cemetery, Batavia, New York

    Michael Carl Palone (great grand father): Elmwood Cemetery, Lyons, New York

    Carlo Paolone (great-great grandfather): Holy Sepulchre, Rochester, New York

    At this time a year ago I was leaving Rome on the way to Carlo and Michael's hometown of Santo Stefano, Campobasso, Molise. The trip to their burial places brings that all full circle,

    In New York I was able to meet a long lost cousin and her family. They shared many old photograpohs and stories. When I started researching the family tree, I did not appreciate how enjoyable it would be to meet so many new family members! Back to work tomorrow, but I find myself with renewed energy for the "hunt" for family information. Ciao.,
