In the beginning...



Hailing from Naples and Palermo, Sicily, the Barone/Cina clan migrated to America at the turn of the 20th Century.  Girolima Cina (Ma) married Joseph Barone (Pa) and they had eight children, Margaret, Harry, Josephine, Rose, Mary, Connie, Santa and Peggy.  The story of this wonderful family is found on the links of these pages. Enjoy the journey of a family that now numbers more than 180 Italian-Americans  AND ... in addition to the 180 we've added spouses from the Irish, the Germans, the Swiss, the Welch, the Jewish, the Africans, the French and the Spanish cultures to name a few of the family mixtures that are loving and living in this group we call "la famiglia."
