Organization Chart of the American Mafia, From Past to Present

This is the most comprehensive, updated list you are likely to come across anywhere of the Italian American Mafia crime families, including their home bases and members' names and titles, from the kings of the volcanoes, to the lowly street-based associates. The names have previously appeared in books, published news reports, legal documents or other forms of communication, and have been vetted by the writers who posted this on Wikipedia.

The lists are divided by crime family, and the names under the various titles of rank appear in chronological order, starting in the past and ending in the present. So under the Genovese family you will see the first Boss on the list is the storied "Clutch Hand" Giuseppe Morello, who ran the family, said to be the first Mafia family in America, from the 1890s to 1909.

Also, you can click on the city, crime family name, and the names of individuals to obtain additional information.
