I am researching family tree for my mother. Her great great grandfather and his brother came from somewhere in Italy. Their names were Guiseppe Graffini (or possibly Graffine) born 1805 and Antonio Graffini born 1806? or 1807. Sometime during the 1820's they left Italy and made their way across Europe eventually arriving in England around 1832. They married two sisters Elizabeth and Sarah Reynolds in 1834 in Worksop, Nottinghamshire. There are records then tracing Guiseppe Graffini's family through the generations in England but no further trace of Antonio and his wife Sarah after that. In the census of 1851 Guiseppe, now called Joseph, is listed with his family in Nottingham. His place of birth is Italy, and then an illegible town name. It looks like Quinicia or Quinuria although the Q may be another letter. Any ideas or help anyone?
If you recall I suggested you go to the nearest Mormon Family History Library and research the name which is better than hoping someone can read a document you cannot read by clairvoyance. If you wish to scan and e-mail the portion of the document to me then perhaps I can discern something. Petertimber@msn.com...Peter
