Benedetti/Illmer family history

Postby Aussie » 15 Dec 2015, 00:46

Hi. I am looking for some information on my grandfather who immigrated from Germany to Australia in 1951. We believe he was born with the surname Benedetti( unknown first name) in murano Italy 23/04/1917 to parents Maria & guiseppe Benedetti with at least one sibling Carlos. For some reason he supposedly changed his name to Wilhelm Illmer married my grandmother Sophie Galuska in Germany then came to Australia with Sophie's son Walter & their own son Helmut(my father). Can anyone help me to establish if this is correct or obtain a possible birth certificate?

I believe that your ancestor coming from MERANO town (Bolzano province, Trentino Alto Adige region, IT) and not Murano... In Merano are Benedetti and Illmer surnames.. maybe helpful,
