From Gloria Wall, Australia
My submission is more in the hope of receiving some family name recognition than a story.
I know my great, great Grandfather (Guiseppe Truffini/Traffini) came from Lavertezzo and sailed to Australia in 1858 on the “John Owens” ship, although I cannot find any mention of this ship.
How old he and 1 other male family member, Bartholomew, were when they sailed I have no idea. Another family member? Angelo sailed on the “Daniel Ross” 3 years previously, 1855.
I am diligently resourcing whatever I can to connect the dots and at least find some mention of our family name in Lavertezzo. A change of spelling in Australia does not help matters.
With my limited connections I will keep trying.
