Last Name-Cope

Postby biddle68 » 06 Jun 2013, 20:37

I am just beginning my genealogical search and was told by several family members that we are of Italian descent. My family's last name is Cope, which if my family is correct about our past, I would assume has been changed from Copa/o or something similar.

Has anyone else heard of the name Cope coming from Italy?
I have checked other sites and found the name Cope originating from the province of Tuscany.

I have always had a passion for genealogy, but I don't have any family records, so I am kind of starting from scratch.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Start with yourself and work backwards using birth and marriage records then census records until you get to the truth. You don't say if you are in the USA or UK. Available records are different for these countries but the process is the same. Don't put the cart before the horse.
