Contact: Ms Andrea Cordani
My name is Andrea Cordani and I am the descendant of an Italian immigrant who settled in the UK.
In Italy the name occurs most frequently 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 have a website at cordani.one-name.net
