I don't know anything about my family's life in Italy other than they were from the Naples area. Three brothers came to the U.S. in the early 1900's. They came into Ellis Island. Then they eventually settled in Phila. PA area (Bucks Co.)They family tree I have does not go back any further than that. Here is what I know. Gennaro (Henry) Sodano and his 2 brothers George & Frank came to the U.S. Gennaro married Rosina Serpico (also from Naples area) their oldest son was Samuel Sodano, then his oldest son was James Henry Sodano, then his oldest son was James Wilson Sodano, then me. As a fifth generation Sodano in America, it's hard to get info. Since your family was also from Naples area we can assume they were related in some way. But I can't make any connection. Sorry. Hope you find some information in your search. We really need more Sodano's to read these messages. Someone must know some of these answers. Take care and let me know if you find anything else out about our surname or other family connections. Good Luck!!!
