Hello all,

Wondering if anyone can help me find my roots?

I don't know much about them and they are a dying breed.

My grandfather (VINCENZO FAILLA) left Sicily Italy when my father was just born. The story goes he went to the shop to buy a packet of cigarettes and ended up in Australia. He end up settling in Emerald Victoria. Does this ring a bell with anyone?

My grandfather was married to a CONCETTINA who had 3 sons (CROCE, CARMELO & ? WHO DIED) and 1 daughter (MARGHARETTA?). The two sons migrated to Australia when they were older.

My father is Carmelo (now deceased). My uncle CROCE is still a living relative.

Can anyone help?
Thank you in anticipation.

Antoinette FAILLA
