My great grandfather came to England with his brother from Italy in mid 1800\'s. The name was spelt Graffini in documents once they arrived in England but there is a letter predating this where it is spelt Graffine. The town is difficult to make out as the handwriting is bad but it looks like Quinnici. Can\'t find it or the surname mentioned anywhere in Italy. My grandmother thought it was somewhere in the south of Italy but didn\'t know more than that. No, I\'m not a consultant - consulting on what? And no, I haven\'t made any other enquiries, just this one. Confusing me with someone else? I would appreciate any help anyone could give. My mother and her sisters have been trying to trace the family tree for years and have got stuck. It\'s important to them to know where they came from.
