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.

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
