My name is Charles A. Gonella. I am 40 years old and I am very interested in the origins of my surname. I have, with my wife, been tracing our family history and we are very interested in finding out when the 'NN' was replaced by a single 'N' in our surname and when or ancestors arrived from Italy and from what part. We have managed to trace back as far as 1910 and are still in South-East London!!! My late father was the 2nd cousin of Nat Gonella the famous jazz trumpeter. I live in Crofton park in South-East London and just down the road from us is an Italian car specialist called Gonnella brtohers. This is what got me interested in finding out about our family history. I would love to know the answers to any of these questions. Can you help? It would be geat to hear from you by E-mail our by post. My address is 154 Chudleigh Road, Crofton Park, London, SE4 1EE England.
