I am looking for information about my Great Grandfather who immigrated to the US about 1894, His name was Raffaello Coppola and he was from Nocera Inferiore. How do I start the process?

Hi Marty :)

Let's hope the poster gets back to us about whether we have the correct Raffaele! :-)

I have not found an arrival yet, but according to the poster it was about 1894 which would put the above Raffaele at about age 18.

You may also want to search in Lettere, Italy. Nocera Inferiore is not that far from Lettere. The Coppolas are an old family from Lettere.
