S: My Family History

BC: If my Nonno were alive, I know he would have been proud of me for doing this project.

FC: La mia famiglia storia. | Il mio Nonno. 1939 - 1988 | ITALIA

1: My name is Olivia and this project is about my Nonno. | Firstly I am studying Migration.

2: On the front cover you saw a family crest. It is my family crest. Our family originated in Pisa, Italy. The first famous family member was Pisano Bonanno who built the Leaning Tower of Pisa. | He died tragically on the 4th of October 1988 from a lung disease called Fibrosing Alveolitis. This was NOT caused by smoking.

3: My Nonno migrated from Valguarnera in Sicily Italy and arrived in Australia in 1959 in November. He was born in 1939 on June 18th.

4: In Italy, my Nonno couldn't find a decent job so he migrated to Australia to find one. | My Nonno worked in an abattoir for six months.

5: He also worked in the Sugar Canes in Queensland.

6: My Nonno and Nonna got married on the 20th July in 1963. | A short time after they got married, their first child Francesca was born but tragically died after being crushed during birth.

7: In 1966, my Nonno became an Australian Citizen and my Aunty Franca, was born.

8: When my Dad was 1, his family moved to Barwon Heads. | In 1972, my Papa, (Father) was born.

9: In 1974, my Uncle Joseph, (Joe) was born.

10: In 1979, the family moved to Ocean Grove.

11: Then in 1982, the family moved to Grovedale and built a house. It was finished in 1983 and he has lived there until the present. I still live there and that house is approximately 30 years old!

12: My Nonno died in 1988 when my dad was 16 years old and in Year 10. My Uncle Joe was 14 in Year 8 and my Aunty Franca was 22 and studying in university.

13: My Nonna migrated from Italy too!

14: The rich Question! | How does knowing about the past help us to understand Australian society today and know who we are? | HMMMMMMMMMMMMM!

16: Knowing about my Grandfather has impacted on my life GREATLY!

17: If my Grandparents didn't migrate, I wouldn't be alive and I wouldn't have a family.
