So, I am quite new to this site. Actually I just joined so hopefully this is the right place to post.
I've been researching my family tree for some time now, and the Italian link in my family tree seems to illude me and everyone else who has attempted to find it so here I am, hoping that someone, somewhere has information on him.
The person I am looking for is Stephano POWSEITCH.
B: 1782 in Palermo, Sicily, Italy
D: 29th of August 1861 in Thornleigh, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.
A book wirrten by Ilija Šutalo says that he was born to Croatian parents, but because he was born in Italy I'm hoping there would be a record of it somewhere.
The above site has essentially all the information there is on him, From his time in England till his death in Australia.
Unfortunately, Everywhere I look there is nothing about his life in Italy, nor his parents. I know that it is a long shot, and the information I want to find on him probably won't ever be found but, being the stubborn person that I am, I probably wont give up looking.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
