Hi ,

I am an Ethiopian looking for an Italian grandfather by the name Antonio Franco or Franco Antonio . He was an engineer in Gondar ,Ethiopia during world war II. Unfortunatley I have no details . I had a wonderful loving father and I have this wish to tell his grandfather ( if he is alive ).

Hi, it is hard to search abt your italian grandfather; Franco is surely the surname.. if he died in the WWII I found a:
Nome: ANTONIO
Cognome: FRANCO
Data di Nascita: 13/4/1915


Luogo di Nascita: ALTAMURA


Luogo Sepoltura: NYERI - CHIESA OSSARIO
Data Decesso: 6/2/1945
Luogo Decesso: IN PRIG. A THIKA
(prisoner in Thika-Kenya; decesead in 6 feb 1945, buried in Nyeri-Kenya);
it are several FRANCO Antonio decesead in the wars, and only 2 died in Africa war; the second is:
Nome: ANTONIO
Cognome: FRANCO
Data di Nascita: 19/6/1913
Luogo di Nascita: LOCRI
Luogo Sepoltura: BARI - SACRARIO MILITARE CADUTI "OLTREMARE"
Data Decesso: 6/10/1941
buried in Bari, Italy, in the cemetery of fallen soldiers in overseas war( Africa)..

but without more details it is impossible a search...
