Welcome to The Mafia Wiki
The wiki about the history of the American Mafia, Gangsters, and other noteworthy associated and/or related criminal figures/crime subjects.

2,122 articles completed since September 2008.

Our Mission Statement

Our objective is to create a factual, interactive database for Internet Users of Wikia.

Note (Remember): That this wiki is editable by anyone unless a page is protected. This wiki is thus open to all young users. Though if you are a newcomer to wiki editing then take note not to edit large segments of articles and only edit spelling, punctuation and grammar. Only when you have mastered those essentials then are you ready to start building profiles and biographies.

TAKE NOTE: This wiki is about the real-life Mafia and the individuals associated with it. It is based on factual information, so every piece of uploaded text, imagery, movies and sound must be sourced. It is NOT a wiki for coverage of fictional movies, books, games and television series about the Mafia. If you want to write about The Godfather, The Sopranos or Goodfellas, there are other wikis for that. Fiction will be deleted and repeat offenders may be blocked.

Primary, Main or Major Topics/Subjects

The Mafia wiki is an accurate, updated centralized source of information on The Southern Italian Criminal Syndicates or Crime Families and their American counterparts. Information ranges from the history of Mafia roots, to individual clan leaders and operations.
