Hi Bob, Mimmo's actual name is Dominico, we just call him Mimi. His date of birth is 12th June 1957 and his wife's name is Janice (sorry not sure of her maiden name). Her date of birth is 14th Feb 1961. I believe they got married August 1979.
My Dad's younger brother Giuseppe was born in the UK. Only my Dad and Mimmo were born in Santa Margherita, and they emigrated here in 1960. My Dad was 5 years old when he came to the UK.
I have advised my Dad of the web site, and he is really keen to look at all the information. He didn't even know it existed ,which is great for him
I hope this helps you. Thanks for all your help on this. Regards, Emma [see updates below]
Hi Robert, I am from Family K. I am the daughter of Vito graffagnino in Bristol, but not the one who helped with the information. As you can see I currently live in Dubai working for emirates. I would be grateful for any information on our family tree if you can help, and it would be nice to talk to people who are related to me.
My father is Vito graffagnino, son of Pietro Graffagnino. He has two brothers Mimmo and Giuseppe. My dad's details are: date of birth = 02/10/1955 born in Santa margherita Sicily, now lives in Bristol UK. He is married to Janet Paul for over 30 years and they married on 28th June 1975 in Bristol. My date of birth is 04/03/1979 and I now work and live in Dubai, was born in Bristol. My brother is also Vito graffagnino. He still lives in the UK in Bristol. His date of birth 23/02/1981 and he was also born in Bristol.
Mimmos children's dates of birth etc are incorrect: Dominic's birthday is 28th December 1982, Mark's birthday is 12th June 1984. Michelle is his daughter's name and her date of birth is 12th July 1987.
I was hoping to buy a book of our family tree or something for my Dad's 50th birthday as I know it would be something he would really enjoy. Is there anything like that that you know of at all?
But the website is great, and I can't wait for my Dad to see this. It's really nice to hear and know that there are relatives of mine in different parts of the world. Regards, Emma Graffagnino, Senior Travel Consultant, Dubai, United Arab Emirates [see updates below]
Benito Graffagnino writes from Bristol, UK: I am Benito Graffagnino. Where did you get all this information? In Family K I am shown as "Benito Graffagnino" born 1995, but I was really born in 1993, and my brother Pietro Graffagnino was born in 1989. Also my Dad is Giusippe Graffagnino and was born in 1962. If this helps you in any way I would be happy to give you more information.
My Dad was married to Helen Dalton 20 years ago. They where married in Bristol. I will phone and ask all my family what they know and email it to you, then we will know it is actually right instead of assuming it is right. I definitely know my dad was born in 62and my mum in 64 - that is right. I will try to get some more stuff for you. I will revise it on the net from other sites and write it all down etc. I think there were only 15-30 Graffagninos in the UK and they all had enough sense to move back to Sicily.
