Need some info


Noticed you uploaded an interesting photo on the Jimmy Burke wiki-- I'm a producer on an upcoming ESPN documentary on Burke and crew, and we're always looking for photos like that. Any way we can talk about hi-res versions of that one, and any others you've found?-- Adam

Can you give me any info on Pasquale " Paddy Mac " Macchiarole who was a capo with the Genovese Family?! And his son John Macchiarole and cousin Andrew DiDonato?! I'm reading a book about Andrew life in the mob and him becoming a rat for the government.. Just not seeing anything about the three of them on this site.. Thanks Aaron

Hi, Aaron, sure no problem, ive heard of Paddy, he was supposedly involved with Jimmy Napoli, ill see what i can do. Also if u have some cool or interesting pics and info on different mob families pls upload, would really appreciate it.--Idgaf1989 (talk) 01:44, March 9, 2014 (UTC)

Hello thanks I'm reading this book I was not sure if I was going read it all wanted to see how true it was and been trying to find out stuff about the different crews he was with http://www.amazon.ca/Surviving-Mob-Street-Soldiers-Gambino/dp/1935396382 that is the the book On another not I notice not to much Canadian content on the site... Not sure if you ever heard of the Irish west end gang in Montreal they control the docks and are heavily involved with the Rizzuto clan also the Rizzuto are multi international having ties to Asian and well as ties to Colombian and Mexican cartels.. Is this site mostly for American mafia or does it also include the sicilian factions also?! I luv this site so cool!! I'm Irish so I like seeing the Irish content also good work on all of this!! Aaron P.S I'm going try to become a member and add some content to the site from the Canadian side of things

Hi Aaron, i just made a page on Paddy Macchiarole although i havent been able to find any pics of him. I have read about the West end gang and sure you should really add some pics and profiles on here about them it would be really great. You can also add about the Sicilian mob, just be careful to not remake pages that already exist on the site. I made almost all of the pages that exists on the canadian mob on this site you can read about the Canadian mobsters profiles in these categories http://mafia.wikia.com/wiki/Category:Rizzuto_crime_family and http://mafia.wikia.com/wiki/Category:Canadian_Mobsters. --Idgaf1989 (talk) 05:46, March 9, 2014 (UTC)

Hi Mikey37, sorry i havent been able to find too much good info so far on the Chicago Outfit mobsters you had requested earlier just general stuff that is already available on the web :/. also i found whatever interesting info i could on several members of the Milwaukee family including Ferrara, which you can view here in this category http://mafia.wikia.com/wiki/Category:Milwaukee_crime_family. The info on ferrara was recovered from old police reports i found on the web and the picture from a book called 'Milwaukee Mafia'. there isnt much info out there on the web when it comes to Ham Delasco, also no photos that i have been able to find and ill try to find some more on Cerone whenever i can and post it up ;) --Idgaf1989 (talk) 22:44, March 9, 2014 (UTC)

hi there,

this wiki has exploded! but who added all that about the FBI founding the site?

Not a correct post

He never owned splash or Dudley’s or Monroe’s. My dad Owned it spent my life There. He did however get involved with the man we had running it and got it shut for us. Subsequently my dad Beat him up so they ruined the restaurant by plugging all the drains and flooding it and smashing all the glass. So this is not an accurate post.
