The Pagoria Family Tree
All Pagorias throughout the world originated in
Caccamo, Italy (about 30
miles east of Palermo, Italy on the island of Sicily). All eight of the original
U.S. Pagorias have been confirmed as having been born in Caccamo. There are
three families that appear to be the common bond between all of the Pagorias in
the United States. All Pagorias contacted in the United States are descended
from these three families.
Main Pagoria Family Tree
Page details all the information that has been collected on the eight Pagoria
branches and their descendants. The families are all related and their roots
have been traced back to the early 1700s in Caccamo. The Pagoria history from
the earliest known Pagoria to the time the eight U.S. Pagorias were born is
documented at the following link (The
Pagoria Old Timers).
All of the following Family Trees are linked to the main Tree and are also
available at the following links:
