From Marilyn L. Geary, United States
I came across a document on the web that may be useful for researchers who are looking for their roots in Ticino. It’s called the “Annuario della Repubblica e Cantone del Ticino: per l’anno 1859-1860” and it lists all kinds of information about the Canton, the political organization and leaders, the churches and hospitals and professions. It’s a directory of sorts in Italian for the years 1859-60.
In my search for information on Luigi Rotanzi, I found him listed in this directory as a judge.
The book can be read for free in Google Books.
