In this article, you will learn how to draw a family tree of your own using different methods. This article will talk about the Coppola family tree and how to remove such a family tree.


Let's discuss a few of the most known members of the family.

Francis Ford Coppola

Francis Ford Coppola is a director mostly known for his trilogy series, The Godfather. He received an Academy Award for this movie. He released his first movie in 1966, named "You're a Big Boy Now". His second movie won an Academy Award for his film Patton. His other works include Apocalypse Now, The Outsiders and Bram Stoker's Dracula.

Talia Shire

A well-known name in the family, who appeared on the big screen for her roles in Godfather, Rocky and Adrian Balboa. She was nominated for the best actress role in Rocky. Talia married a composer, David Shire, and had a son, Matthew Shire. Matthew is a screenwriter and producer working for different movies.

She then married Jack Schwartzman in 1980 and had two sons, Jason and Robert. Both sons are actors and working in movies now.

Sofia Coppola

Sofia Coppola, the youngest daughter of Francis Coppola, is a well-known director of this age. She appeared in his father's movies for small roles but could get the appreciation from the audience. She said she wasn't interested in her acting, so that couldn't backfire on her. She made her directorial debut in the film The Virgin Suicides in 1999.

This film received an Oscar award for the original screenplay. She was the third woman ever to be nominated as a director.

Sofia married director Spike Jonze in 1999, and her marriage ended in 2003. She dated another director, Quentin Tarantino, but the relationship didn't go well. She married Thomas Mars back in 2006, and the couple have two daughters, Romy Mars and Cosima Mars.

Roman Coppola

Roman is Francis's second son and a well-known director. His famous work includes CQ and A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III. He has worked with well-known artists around the world.

He married a musician and wrote Jennifer Furches. The couple have three children: Pascal, Marcello and Alessandro.

Nicolas Cage

Nicolas Cage is probably one of the best actors in this family. He was born to August Coppola and Joy Vogelsang in 1964. He started his acting career at the age of 18.

He was cast in a starring role for many movies like Face/Off, National Treasure, Moonstruck, and Arizona. He won the best actor award for his role in Leaving Las Vegas in 1996.

Nicolas has been married five times. Patricia Arquette, Lisa Marrie Presley, Alice Kim, and Erika Koike were the ones whom he married and divorced. He married Riko Shibata in Las Vegas in 2021. Once, in an interview, he said five is a big number, but he thinks he made the right decision this time.

Gia Coppola

She is the granddaughter of Francis. Gian Carlo Coppola died in 1986 when his fiancée Jacqui Getty was pregnant with his baby daughter Gia.

Gia is a director, and she cast her Aunt Talia and Uncle Jack in her movies. She made short films at the start of her career.

Part 1. How to Draw a Family Tree?

A family tree is usually drawn using two methods. One is from scratch, and the other one is using a template. We will discuss both these methods in this part.

Method 1: Starting from Scratch

Starting from scratch means you will put everything on the canvas and draw relationships among the components to get things ready. Here is how you can do it.

Step 1: Open EdrawMax, and click New> Family Tree.

This saves a lot of time and relaxes you as you don't need to do much. If you're not a specialist designer, you'll be able to edit the files easily as all the things are placed correctly on the canvas. If you need more components, you can easily make copies of the components yourself.
