Unearthed Treasure How do I find their ancestors
« on: Saturday 29 July 17 11:52 BST (UK) »
An absolute treasure has turned up in Folkestone, Kent (but could have come from anywhere)

A hard back photo album - looks like jumanji book, all hand painted around the photo, given as a   present to Peter Charles Brachi on his 21 birthday from his cousins. The date being January 27th 1877 . I have attached the first page of a photo album.  Can anyone help find his roots so to speak?

Many thnaks

How beautiful it is.

Here he is in 1871 https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:VB6V-4VK with a Neely connection which helps.
In 1881 he is Tobacco manufacturer.
