Information on Family of Paul (Paolo) Scopa

Postby mikescopa » 04 Dec 2014, 02:41

Hi. New to the board. Looking for some help in obtaining some information on the family of Paul (Paolo) Scopa. I believe he was born and/or lived in Avellino, in the Campania Region. He emigrated to the U.S.A. on the ship "Citta Di Torino" out of Naples and arrived in New York on March 17, 1903 at the age of 25 (approx). He married Jennie DiDio (also believed to be from Avellino), although we are not sure if they arrived together. At some point, they moved to the Boston area. I would love to obtain any other data on Paolo or his Jennie's family. Thanks in advance.

Hi Marty, this is incredibly helpful. We have a large family trip to the Naples area planned in June, and it is great to know the village. I am now trying to track down any living descendants that might still be living in the area. I found a couple of names that may be a good place to start. "Fiore Scopa" at Via Salanzo, 83050 Villamaina, and "Antonio Scopa" at Via Trento 189, 84129, Salerno. Any suggestions on how best to continue my research?

Thanks Marty. I think this Andrea Pasquale Scopa, is actually by grandfather's brother, "Henry". Henry is the name I knew him by. Perhaps he changed it along the way when he moved from Italy to Boston.
