Arrived on ship "Moncaliere". As spoken by Nonna there were Moslem slaves at the back of the ship headed for Colombo. Arrived through Torres Straight to Townsville in 1922.

Dear Helen,

Are you trying to find Aldo Costa?....or Giordano?

I used www.whitepages.com.au and found two A Costas living in Brisbane, but none in Townsville. If you have trouble finding them on the whitepages site I will email you the addresses I could find.

Thanks for the info, but I still believed he lived in Treville. Worth looking into. It is Aldo Costa.
That was all the info I had from Nonna before she died. Very little family left, except Mother and Uncle here in Brisbane, and Gold Coast.

Helen,

on www.paginebianche.it site there is one Aldo Costa listed as living in Treville. Have you tried that site? Perhaps he is the Aldo you are looking for.

Thanks Silvana,
The White Pages would be the obvious place to look. I couldn't find it. White Pages I mean in Italy. Anyway a shoe shop man. Should be interesting, at least I am in the right place. Will write and see what happens. You are a treasure.
By the way, when I looked up the name all over Australia I came up with about 100.
I hope he can read English. Will send copies of photos. I can only understand Piedmontese spoken, but my Uncle in Brisbane will be able to help.
Thanks again, will let you know.
Helen
