BERNASCONI surname

Postby ianbyers » 18 Apr 2010, 22:24

Looking for any information on an Antoni BERNACONI, born circa 1801,
in northern Italy (or southern Switzerland ?).
Emmigrated to England and married Harriet THORN in Wanstrow, Somerset, UK, circa 1837.
Any info appreciated.

I have NO information on Antoni, other than his name,
possible year and area of birth - Ticino, Switzerland (?) - which I believe was part of Italy until 1803 (?)

What village or commune were Giovanni & Giuseppa living in ?

Have found that "Switzerland" on UK census records, has been mis-interpreted as "Soveltrein" - part of the mystery solved.

Still need to identify WHERE in Ticino Antonio and his family lived.

I have been able to confirm, from the Archive office in Bellinzona, of the information below, although there is no guarantee that it is "my" Antonio Bernasconi, as there are lots of Antonio Bernasconi's !.

In the absence of any contradicting evidence, I will go with this one, until proven otherwise.

An interesting note on the record for Antonio, states - "Domiciliata originaria di[ Ronago R.L.", which is just across the border (in Italy) from Riva St Vitale and Tremona area where the records show the families circa 1833. (any thoughts on what the "R.L." might stand for ?)

Can someone point me in the direction of the Italian equivalent of the archives office (in Bellinzona), is it in Como, or elswhere ? (for Ronago records) so I can continue my research.

Regards and thanks
Ian :)

Further note to my recent post - Antonio Maria BERNASONI's grandparents (Domenico's parents) appear to be Carlo Andrea BERNASCONI, and Giuseppa ZEPPI (possibly also from Ronago, Italy), and Francesco FERRARI & Rosali CROCI.

I would also appreciate any information on these couples or the FERRARI, CROCI & ZEPPI families.

Regards & thanks
Ian :)

My new family tree has the following connected (mostly Italian ?) family names that might be of interest to other Ticino researchers (I suspect a couple might be SWISS or GERMAN)

BERNASCONI, FERRARI, MOMBELLI, ZEPPI (CEPPI), MASPOLI, DURINI, RUSCONI, FOLETTI, BARRACHI, PINILLOS, INGOLD, BERTRAND, PLACIDE, BILLAUD, MJOR, RYSER, JUNOD, JEANGUERIN, PERRET, VERMOT, PERRIN, SCACCHI, SOLCA, BANFI, ROLNOSI, ROSSI, REALINI, GRASSI, ADAM, PANINA, CROCI, FONTANA, ALBISETTI, MORETTI.
