From Mark McLaughlan, Australia
My great grandfather and great great grandfather were both named Carlo Traversi and according to the records were born in Cevio which was known as “Swiss-Italian” in our history.Carlo senior came out to Victoria, Australia during the gold rush years around 1850.
The story is that he travelled with his cello and walked to the gold mines in Daylesford which was about 100 miles – on foot. Playing for his supper. Amazing.
Anyone that has any connection would love to hear from you.
