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

  • Remembering this week in history....

    It is very difficult for me to believe that my father passed away thirty years ago today, on January 29, 1983 at the age of 47 years old. The time has just vanished, and at the same time I have gone to college and raised a family in that time. I thought of my father as being "old" back then- not "old-old" but old enough. I am that age now, and although there are days I FEEL old, I know that I have as much ahead of me in my life as I do in my rear view mirror. At least, that is what i am hoping for.

    An oddity of family history is that my father's parents both passed away on January 28- his father, Michael in 1977 and his mother, Florence Guard Palone in 1962. The passing of my father actually marked the beginning of my interest in my family tree and the Palone Family history. Back then, I thought mostly of my grandparents and cousins and could have never imagined I would learn so much of my ancestors. I hope I can continue to learn, but this week in history will always be significant for me and my family.

    "Grandpa Palone" passed during the great "Blizzard of '77" in New York, this week in history.

    A very interesting look back:
