My great grandfather Ernesto Isidoro Piccolo Rodoni left Ticino in 1886. He settled in Elevated Plains, Hepburn, Victoria, where he died on the 22nd of September 1952.
Ernesto Isidoro was born in Pontirone (Biasca) on 20th April 1866. His parents were Carlo and Maria Agostina Rodoni. Together with my wife I travelled to Ticino at the beginning of September 2009 to look for his old house or properties and to learn more about his brother Giovanni Battista, who went to Australia with Isidoro.
Please let us know if there is a Rodoni (somewhere in Switzerland, Australia or America) related to my great grandfather or if somebody can give us any information about Ernesto Isidoro’s life in Ticino.
