In 1906 there is a Giuseppa Messina (28) traveling with a child Domenico Fedili (7) from Cefalu to Chicago. But they're going to meet husband & father Salvatore Fedili.

Coincidence?

Hi

I know they were born in Genoa some went to Australia and New Zealand
Joseph Louis was in the Boar War,I have his war Records
My Great Grandfather was born in 1846 Brindisi or Genoa there is some debate which one.
I know it is a very long shot to find some information as I am told that Gestro is a comman name in Italy

The Australian Electoral Rolls have the following:
1930 Ronald Louis Gestro and Violet Gestro
1936 Both of the above and George Matthew Gestro and Jean Marion Gestro with George, Jean and Ronald living in the same residence.
Hope this helps
