Hello Debra - thank you for replying to my query re; pte Wm. Farmer.  I have documents pertaining to w. Farmer, and photgraphs, taken obviously back in ap. 1916.

We would like to know more about his family tree, but I am not too sure how to set about finding information, in Australia.  Any tips would be much appreciated.  Once again, many thanks.  Regards Joyce.

 Hello. My name is Reli and i am helping my friend. His father has been living for 20 years in Australia from 1938 until to 1958. His father was called Ilia Ilia (Elias) ll and has worked in a tabacco factory in Brisbane and maybe he has performed military. I would like to know if his father might be an Australian citizen. 

All the goods, Reli
