Lucy Vallencich in Rennie
I live in Melbourne in Australia.
When we left Egypt in 1965 we went to live in New Zealand and at a later stage left for Australia (1980's).
My grandfather in Egypt had an import business and imported furniture - I recall my father and his sisters telling me that he furnitured the Palace in Abdin.
Of course he lost all during two world wars when he was interned.
I know little else of my family history. My grandfather had a sister married in Italy, and her married name was Cafieri. I believe they lived in Naples and she had at least one daughter who I have never met. I only have one Aunt now alive in Sydney, Rita Osborne (nee Vallencich) and three cousins.

I studied Italian literature and the language at Auckland University.
