Rinaldi Teglio/Taglio Italy

Postby wenmaree » 05 Aug 2010, 02:24

I would like to find out more information about my GG Grandfathers family
This is what I know
His name was John (Giovanni) RINALDI born 1844 Teglio/Taglio (spelling differs in the records I have)
Parents Antonio Rinaldi and Martha Balotaola?? (surname is hard to read)
He arrived in Australia in 1863 having departed from Liverpool England, aged 19 years. Occupation farmer.
His naturalization papers from 1886 give his birth name as Giovanni

Any help would be appreciated

As you can see from this mapping tool ( http://www.gens.labo.net/en/cognomi/genera.html ) the name Rinaldi is perfuse throughout Italy.

There are three comuni in Italy today which fit your Teglio/Taglio name. They are:

Comune di Teglio, Provincia di Sondrio, Regione di Lombardia, Northwestern Italy

Comune di Teglio Veneto, Provincia di Venezia, Regione di Veneto, Northeastern Italy

Comune di Taglio di Po, Provincia di Rovigo, Regione di Veneto, Northeastern Italy

Giovanni's Australian naturalization documents ( http://naa12.naa.gov.au/scripts/Imagine.asp?B=1750595 ) seem to clearly state "Taglio" as his place of birth, so perhaps the last entry above is the correct location.

I do not see Giovanni's parents' names on the naturalization papers; where di you get his mother's maiden name from? If we can determine the correct spelling, we may be able to narrow down the possible birthplace for Giovanni.

Hi Carmen
Yhanks for your reply.
The parents names come from his marriage cert, place of birth on this cert says Taglo Lombardy. Mothers surname looks like Balotoala but the o's and the a' s could be interchanged, it is hard to decipher, but it definately starts with B and ends with LA. I really wish that the people who wrote out these certs were made to print them, it would make life alot easier.

Hi again Carmine
Sorry got your name wrong last time
Re mothers name - Martha doesn't seem like a very italian name????
It is definately listed as Martha on the marriage cert.
This name has been handed down through the family.
Giovanni (John) called one of his children Martha and there are also
grandchildren and g grandchildren with this name.

Hi Wendy:

The info that I have:

Giovanni's parents were Antonio (b 24/2/1823 Cologna Veneta, Verona, Veneto) and Martina Bellotelli (b 27/9/1808 Teglio, Sondrio, Lombardia) married 4/8/1834

Antonios parents: Antonio 4/11/1773 & Domenica Togni 4/4/1783 both of Cologna

Antonios parents: Bernardo c 1735 and Maria Maddalena Garbellini c 1738

That's as far as I've gotten
