This is a listing of the major, and minor families found within Clan Giovanni. Information was pulled from both 1st and 2nd edition Clan Giovanni books and Mediums: Speakers with the Dead.
Giovanni: The main family. Formed by Augustus as a massive merchant family who made their mark on the world by being war profiteers from the Crusades. Being masters of necromancy certainly helped matters.

Hidalgo: Another branch of the family that originated within Mexico. Rumored to be wiped out by the Sabbat as contact with them has been broken

Milliners: A family of bankers bar none. The head of the Milliners has a hard on for destroying the JFKs. While not interested in necromancy, they excell at what they do best and thats finace. The Milliners are a big reason the Giovanni have Boston to this day.
della Passaglia: Another family of traders who were rumored to have been connected to the great Marco Polo himself. They now serve as the Giovanni connection to asian thanotolgy and their prime asian mercantile business men.
