Coppola & Sodano Family
My Mother, Frances (Coppola) Shumate Anderson, was one of fourteen children born to Francesco Coppola and Antonetta Sodano, who immigrated from Pomigliano d'Arco, Italy, in 1902 and 1903, respectively. Their first child, Nicolo, was born in Pomigliano d'Arco and all others in East Douglas, MA. This Pedigree Chart shows my ancestors from Pomigliano d'Arco.
Today, there are incredible (and free) online resources you can access with a computer from your home. For Italian researchers, these include: (1) FamilySearch's Italy Historical Record Collections and (2) The National Archives of Italy's
Ancestors Portal. Using these resources, I was able to find birth, marriage, and death records for many of my Italian ancestors and create this amazing family history.
