Searching for information on a Tonelli

From Maureen, United States

Hello, My great-grandfather was born in Ticino Switzerland on October 30, 1875. His name, as listed on the ship manifest is Michele Tonelli.  He arrived in Ellis Island on July 31, 1893 on the ship the Werra from Genoa. He lived with family in Pennsylvania before moving to Boston sometime around 1901. His mothers name (first/last?) was Magdela (?). We believe he was born in a village called Conit Telnig, but can’t seem to find any information on the town. If anyone has any family information, it would be so appreciated. My Great-Grandfather is our mystery relative! Thanks so much, Maureen
