Trying to find Coppola family in Brooklyn

Postby jpmom » 07 Mar 2008, 02:11

I am trying to locate my biological fathers family who I believe still
live in Brooklyn, NY. I know that he has passed away but would
like to find other relatives. His name was Louis Coppola Jr.
His father was Louis, mother Frances. They used to own Neptune Marina
many, many years ago. It is no longer there. They had 3 other children
named Frank, Charles and Helen.
If anyone knows this family or have any information I would appreciate it.
I never met my father but I am hoping my grandmother may still be alive.
Thanks!

Here are a few possibles. There are more listed in towns close to Brooklyn, but I only listed "Brooklyn" results. Not sure about any dates (birth / death) so I don't know which Louis might be connected to any of your Louis's. Hope this helps.


Possible. The children's names don't match, but the head is Louis and the wife is Frances

Thank you for the info. I appreciate your time!

I should also have mentioned that Louis and Frances divorced in the
60's so both were probably remarried.

Thank you for the information. I have found some Michael Cafiero's in New York and will be calling them. Hopefully it will lead me in the right direction!
Louis Coppola Jr. was born 4/25/1945 and died August 1984. I found this info on the Social Security website and the birthdate rang a bell with my mom. They were only married for 1 year in 1965 (the year I was born) and she never saw him after.
She does not know if he ever got married again, but one would assume he did. This of course makes me wonder if I have any siblings.
I know that if I went to New York I might have more luck looking up records, but I live in Florida.

Thanks again for all the help! what a wonderful website!!

Does she have her marriage certificate? Divorce records?

she isn't sure if she has them, but I don't see how they can really help anyway. I have my father's social security number and my mom remembers the street they lived on but that was 42 years ago.
I have just sent emails to 2 people on classmates.com that may be an aunt and an uncle. Maybe that will pan out?

Thanks.........

If your mom remembers where she got married you can send away for marriage certificate.

Here is the NYC Marriage information page:
http://www.cityclerknyc.com/MarriageBureau/index.htm

Here is the PDF Form:
[url=http://www.cityclerknyc.com/download/Mail_In_Request_Form.pdf]
MAIL REQUEST FOR MARRIAGE RECORDS ONLY[/url] 1930-Present

NOTE: Marriage Records 50 years or older are public records obtainable by anyone. Marriage records that are less than 50 years old can only be released TO:

1) The husband or wife (maybe your Mom could put her name on the form for you so that you can get the information.)
2) Person presenting written authorization from either the husband or wife (Note: The written authorization must be an original and must be properly notarized. No facsimiles or photo copies will be accepted).

NOTE 2: Children of deceased parents will be provided parental Marriage Records upon presentation of the death certificates of both parents.

It was on the "long form" application for marriage that I found out my father's, father's name and the names of his Mother's mother & father. Thier birthplace was listed as well - unfortunately - they only said Italy...no comune listed. Good thing I already knew that!

I hope this will be helpful to you:

Louis, Jr.'s sister Helen, whom you mention, married a Robert Bernstein, circa 1969 in Brooklyn, NY. They had two children, first Gregory, then Charles. They divorced in the 1980s. Helen and her children relocated to the Daytona Beach area of Florida and Robert later relocated to Charlotte County, Florida in the early 1990s where he died in 1996, survived by his two children and his former wife Helen, who by then had remarried, married name unknown.

The two children, Gregory and Charles, likely are still in the Daytona area, and likely their mother also.

Again, I hope that this will be of assistance to you.

Good luck.
