Thank you for you help I have traced my grandfathers arrival to Australia to be 1921 and he was naturalized in 1928. From some time then he returned to Italy and married my grandmother Maria Massimino and they then both returned to Australia. They were married in Acireali on 23rd September 1930. How do I find out when they left Italy and returned to Australia?
