About the study

My name is Andrea Cordani and I am the descendant of an Italian immigrant who settled in the UK.

The name occurs most frequently in Italy especially in the regions of Emilia Romagna and Lombardia.



My initial interest in doing a one-name study arose simply from my curiosity to know whether other members of the relatively small number of CORDANI families in the UK were related to me, or not.

In 2005 I visited my own ancestor's place of birth in Groppo Ducale, a frazione (hamlet) within the comune of Bettola, in the province of Piacenza.

Since then I have been collecting CORDANI names and decided to register this study in 2016.

I am at the start of my research and would be very interested to hear from others who are interested in the name.
