My name is Vicki Araldi and after 56 years I have been told my biological fathers name. His name was Francesco Renato Giadresco. I have found that he died at the age of 41 years on 04/10/71. I have been told by my estranged mother that they were together for 2 years and when she was pregnant with his child he wanted to send me to North Italy for his family to raise me. My mother refused and pregnant with me married a man who I thought was my father who I loved dearly. He died 31 years ago when he was 47 years old. I just want to know what my biological father was like and a photograph of him. I have been told he was very good looking and very tall. My daughter Taya is tall, taller than her brothers. My oldest son Timothy had a tumour on the base of his brain when he was 16 years old but he survive and now is 36 years old. I was told that my father died of a brain tumour. I don't know if I am on the right track but I have to try to see if this man was my father. So if anyone can help me, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for reading this. Cheers Vicki Araldi WA.
My wife came across your message today while looking into our family history. The details you have given regarding who your estranged mother said was your biological father are almost identical to my father. You have the exact name, he died 1/10/1972 at age 41 and had a brain tumour. I guess from your age you were born around 1957 so the man your mother was with would have been in 1955/56/57 I assume. My father married my mother in 1959 and I was born in 1961 and have a brother who was born in 1965. I would be interested to know where your mother was living at the time she was with this man because I don't think my father ever lived in WA.
I don't know if this is of any help to you, but the details you have given do resemble my father.
In the 1940 census line 25 is a name that looks like Marrie D Duplissey son of Henrietta Duplissey. There is no such person as this was my father. The name should read Henry Morris Duplissey instead of Marrie D.
I am trying to locate my husband's Grandfather/Great Grandfather's family. All I have is his grandfather's birth certificate. I will give you the details below, is there any way anyone could help me or point me in the right direction???
Birth Name: Thomas Lees
Birth Surname: May
Birthdate: 17 June 1908
Birthplace: 101 Firhill Road, Glasgow
Father's Name: William May (Drapery Salesman)
Mother's Name: Ann McCulloch Meyer May (ms. Lees)
Date & Place of Marriage: 25 December 1903, Blythswood District, Glasgow.
As far as I can understand Thomas had 2 sisters though I have no idea who they are where they are.. Thomas used to tell how he was a practicing Vet in the U.K. and he caught a cattle borne disease; Contagious Abortion. The doctors told him that he had to leave Britain where C.A. is an endemic disease and recommended that he either immigrated to Jamaica or Rhodesia. It must have been prior to the Second World War because he couldn't join up. It is believed that he changed his surname to LEES MAY when he went to University to study Veterinary. Any help would be greatly appreciated, I would love to find even One of his family!!!!
