Maybe I'm misunderstanding you but there is no Bommarito family in New York. The five New York families are the Genovese, Gambino, Lucchese, Colombo, and Bonanno families.

Traditionally, captains have been referred to as "capo decina" or "capo regime." But nowadays for the most part, in the American mob at least, they are simply called "captains." Sometimes "skipper."

The lists above are of current members (some associates) of the families. So obviously Henry Hill wouldn't be listed as he flipped and left the life years ago.

outdated info

Postby odie » February 28th, 2008, 11:36 pm

Good info dude, but a little outdated, maybe, 3 or 4 years. At least where Kansas City is concerned. To bring you up to speed a bit; Pete Simone is the boss now, Vince Picone is dead (car crash)... a few other soldiers you mention are deceased or incarcerated, and there is a whole new generation you don't mention at all... not that I've done any "research" on this, my info is personal knowledge only...drop me a line if you'd like to chat about this...

These charts include guys who are inactive, in prison, on parole, etc. If you only include active guys on the street, your charts constantly need updating. As far as Los Angeles goes, it sounds like you are as up to date as anyone else. There is a poster on another forum who knew a lot of the LA guys personally but that was a while back. Not much current news. To quote The Sopranos, the family is now a glorified crew.

westside, isn't Allie Boy Persico up for indictment? The way I see it, "The Snake" is the Colombo Boss in name regardless of his 100 year prison sentence, which would take heat away from the Family as to who the feds think is running them on the street but he actually wanted Allie to step in and run the show.Which caused beef's all over the outfit. I thought I had read that Aliie Boy got out of one Grand Jury situation, but right back into another. What happened to Hugh "Apples" Macintosh? A trusted ally of the Persico's? Also, PM me where you get your information I have read about and been fascinated with the LCN as far back as I can remember, and this new generation, with all the snitching going on, it's hard to keep track of who's with who now. I understand the membership books have been closed now for a few years and the Families are trying to get everything organized and straight. I hope this is the case..Thanks in advance.

Former Colombo acting boss Alphonse "Allie Boy" Persico and former Colombo underboss John "Jackie" DeRoss were recently convicted last December for the murder of former Colombo underboss William "Wild Bill" Cutolo. Carmine "The Snake" Persico remains official boss of the Colombo family, though his health is said to be deteriorating. High level Colombo associate Hugh "Apples" MacIntosh died of natural causes while incarcerated in 1997.

Westside might be able to help out more with this, but due to the large amount of made guys flipping, the Families have had to go back to being more selective as to who gets proposed for membership.

The New York families closed their books in the early 1930's, reopened them in 1954, closed them again in 1957, and then reopened them again in 1974, and they've been open ever since. Closing their books at about 20 years at a time caused the families to become much smaller in size, as well as have having age gaps.

The large number of guys flipping has caused the families to become more selective over the last 15 years or so as to who they make a member. But it varies from family to family. For instance, the hardest family to get made into is the Genovese family. Guys that couldn't get made with the Genovese will sometimes get made into one of the other families. While there are exceptions, most prospective Genovese members have to wait a lot longer to be made. And two other members have to vouch for them with their lives. As a result, many members are older, more experienced, and that is why they are the strongest family in New York and the nation.

That probably explains why in the "mob rats" topic you started, I read thst the Genovese Family has had only 3 SOLDIERS flip..Very impressive in this day and age. Nice to see that some soldati still believe in and respect OMERTA...Hard to believe that the Dons of today are ratting and turning State's evidence..Lucky Luciano is spinning.

The interesting this is the Bonanno family had never had a member flip up until the early 2000's. But when captain Frank Coppa turned, it started a domino effect of other captains, soldiers, the underboss, and finally the boss himself flipping. In the early 1990's, the feds considered the Bonanno family so weak that they combined their Bonanno and Colombo investigative squads together. This lack of law enforcement pressure enabled the Bonannos to make a comeback over the next decade. But when the FBI began investigating them again, they fell like a house of cards.

The Genovese family is very different. They've been the hardest hit over the past decade, even more then the Bonannos. Numerous members have gone to prison. But except for soldier George Barone, none have flipped. Genovese guys are just cut from a different cloth. Very disciplined, very low key, and the family is stable and resilient because of it.

I've seen fbi reports that in 2002 this was the amount of members made that year by each family
Genovese-9 2008 Reports
Gambino-8 Genovese-12
Bonanno-4 Gambino-10
Lucchese-3-5 Bonanno-7-9
Colombo-3-5 Colombo-7-9
Lucchese-5-6

I f you make 12 guys a year like genovese you probably have twice that go to jail. Even though it seems like alot it's really not. Most are just underling soldiers or a few make capos. If it rises a little every year and depending how old they are the mafia could retaine some strength. Does ANYONE KNOW ANY NEWLY MADE MAFIA SOLDIERS FROM ANY FAMILY. I KNOW ONE FROM Buffalo (Carmine Spigotaliano) made in 2007

Technically speaking, the New York families are only supposed to make new members to replace ones that have died. When a family wants to make some new members, a list is circulated around that the other families have to approve. Former underboss Sal Vitale testified that they would sometimes make up names of guys that had died in order to make more members than they should. Former Bonanno acting boss Vinny Basciano accused current Gambino consigliere Joseph Corozzo of doing the same thing. Beyond that, the families are allowed to each make two new members at Christmas time.

In early 2007, about a year ago, it was confirmed that the Buffalo Family made 6 new guys. The general rule in NYC is that they only 'make' new guys when older guys retire. Outside of NYC, it's up to each boss who they make.
Last year it was said that 6 new members of the Buffalo Family were made. 2 reside in Niagara Falls, 2 from Hamilton, Ontario, and 2 from Utica. 4 were young guys (two were described as junkies). The other 2 were said to be old guys who earned their marks back in the day...
It's a changing world...

Techincally speaking yes but the new generation and new younger bosses in the mafia don't abide by the rules all the time

They don't hold nearly as much power as they used to though.

Except for New York, where they changed the rule back to prospective members having to be full Italian back around 2000. Although I'm sure there are exceptions made on occassion for guys who are especially well-connected.

This list definitely needs some updating. A ton of these guys are dead, on the shelf permanently, or never even a member at all.

No. The LA family, or what's left of it, is nothing more than the size of a single crew at this point. They're not in a position to "oversee" anything.

Crazy. Do you think that is due to La Eme influence in these parts? LCN was suppost to be a big deal in San Diego during the 1970's.
