I was born in Australia to Maltese parents with my father born in Malta and my mother born in Gozo. So am a very proud mix of Aussie, Maltese and Gozitan. They both migrated here in the 1980s, but met here in Australia. I grew up hearing the Maltese language around me, with mum’s amazing cooking of Maltese food and was brought up in and around the Maltese community of Sydney with all the Maltese culture and traditions brought with the older Maltese generations when they migrated here in Australia.

I also decided to include my journey to finding my family history. Whilst working on my family history, I have come across a handful of blogs (with Maltese heritage) that document their findings. I found them not only inspirational, but very helpful in guiding me on where to look. So if my blog pops up in someone’s Google search, I hope that my ramblings are of help to them too.
Lastly, I have been a member of the Maltese-Australians’ Youth Committee (MAYC) for just over a year now. A group of us decided to take the initiative and step up in our aging Maltese community. We have accomplished and grown so much, with the potential to accomplish and grow so much more. You can find out more about MAYC by following our Facebook page.
