I have recently bagan to research my Gonnella family history, however I have little information to start with.
I know that my g.grandpa was Gioccondo (George) Gonnella and that he married Mary (don't know maiden name). They imegrated from Barga to Hawick, Roxburghshire, Scotland and ran a chip shop, (Tilio's). Gioccondo died whilst visiting Barga and is interred there, not sure what year though. Mary died in Hawick and interred there, again I'm unsure of the year.
They had 2 children, Anna Leah and Giovanni (Jock), (my papa).
Anna Leah married Andrew Wilkinson and had a daughter, Ann. Giovanni married Olive Graham and had a daughter, Avril, my mum.
Anna, Andrew, Giovanni and Olive are all now deceased, but I'm afraid I can't remember all the dates.
Any information would be much appriciated.
Thanks Leona
