I am hoping that someone may be able to help me with my reserch please. I am trying to track down the birthplace and date of Carlo del Corchio la Franchini or Carlo Torcetti who migrated to Australia on the ship Lucie arriving in Australia in 1855. All I know about the Swiss connection for Carlo is that he was born in Ticino about 1835 and that he came to Australia with a friend Nicola Ostini. I do know that Nicola was born on the 21/9/1831 in Bellinzona. They both arrived in Victoria and then sometime between 1855 and 1870 the moved to New South Wales.
I am researching this name for a friend whose surname is Torcetti, it is from this friends father that I have got the information that I have. I would really like to be able to find out more about Carlo.
Thanks in advance
