Hi Joe! I am Linda Palcic, a distant cousin of yours, as my great grandparents are Alphonso and Emma.My grandparents are George Palcic who married Maire Pitchford. Our situation is unique, as my Grandfather and your Mother were brother and sister, and my grandmother Maire was sister to Anthony, your father! Two Palcic siblings married two Pitchford siblings! Only in this family!!! My father is Raymond Palcic,who must be your first cousin. Ray has two brothers, Michael and David, and one sister, Colette, who are also your cousins. So my brothers, Paul and George and myself would be your second cousins, as is Donal who is also on this site, son of Michael. Confused yet? I am also in touch with Auntie Doreens (sister to your father)grand daughters, Rachel and Grainne. I'll recommend them to come on here to keep in touch! I seem to remember my Grandfather George visiting your motherin Australia, I wonder if you remember him?
Also just to confuse things, there are two Linda Palcic's on here, I am the one based in London UK. I am sure we have plenty of info to exchange, sorry to overwhelm you with so much already!
