Domenica Righetti
« on: Wednesday 10 January 18 02:02 GMT (UK) »
Hello, My name is Vic Mather and I am tracing Domenica Righetti (my GGGrandmother) who sailed to Australia on the SS Great Britain, along with her Married Sister Maria Lucrezia Giacometti (nee Righetti), and her two Brothers, Marco and Giuseppe Righetti. All were born in Someo, Ticino, Switzerland. The SS Great Britain arrived in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia on the 2nd May 1861, and that is all the information I have. I would be very greatful if anybody can fill me in on any more details about these people from the Passenger List. Thank you very much. Regards, Vic Mather. (Melbourne, Australia.)

From this thread:

http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=514702.msg6406073

The person listed on the Great Britain manifest in 1861 is recorded as Domenico RIGGATTI, a male farmer aged 21.

Your Domenica's marriage certificate should give her age and birthplace and name both her parents.

Hello Veejay9,
 i have two connections to this post.
The name Righetti is unusal and I had a teacher at Foster High School in the 1960's and one of my teachers was Miss Righetti. No details remembered as she was not there for long.
Two - If you find a passenger list for the SS Great Britain keep an eye open for any McClures as it is believed that my Samuel McClure came to Australia on that ship. [He also finished in Foster].
Cheers
Jack Gee

Hi veejay9
Where had you sourced the information regarding the family's Great Britain arrival of May 1861?

As Debra has pointed out, they were not aboard that vessel.
I too have looked.

Are you seeking information about them prior to arrival, or their life in Australia?

Vic,
There is a Tree on Ancestry with information regarding Domenica Righetti and her family.
Would this be your tree?..
