The Photographic
Years of research started out as a small project to document the Canova family tree for my son. Now it is an attempt to make it as complete and accurate as possible. The family tree within these pages spans over 15 generations and is as wide as the world with relatives everywhere. If you are a Canova living in the USA, there is a good chance you and your immediate family can be found here. But if you don't see yourself, please let me know!

As I Remember The Canova family is very fortunate to have the writings of Philip J. Canova, Jr to help us remember our past. With permission of my cousin Betty, I'm pleased to be able to share our Uncle Phil's book "As I Remember" with you. It has many stories about his life and of our family's history, including kindness to slaves and seeking one's dreams. Please charish this, learn from it and pass it on to future generations.
