Im looking for any Turini Family members from Tirol in the 1800's. Albino Turini (b. 1866) Married Teresa Biada? (b.1868) abt. 1888. They had one child John N Turini b.Jan, 1891 in Tirol. Albino came to the US some time in 1890 and Teresa and John came in 1893. Im also showing a August and Caroline from the same area in Norway Mi and From Austria that could be family. Anyone that would have any info or could do a look up on these family members would be a great help.Thanks Tony Turini

Hello Tony,
My name is Tony Turini also. I'm fairly new to researching my family history. I came across your post just through searching around on here. I don't know where my family came from before they came here to America, but I would love to learn.
I know only as far back as my great grandfather who was a coal miner in a small town in Illinois that had mainly an Italian population. He died in a coal mining accident in the early 1900's when my grandfather was only three years old so he never really knew much about his history. I've been to his grave site and his last name on his tombstone is actually spelled Torino. So I thought we may have either been from the city or Torino in Italy or Turin but I'm not sure.
I got on ancestry to see if I could find a place in Italy where there was a large Turini population. It is very interesting to see that your family may have been from Austria. that would make sense being that they are so close to each other and from what I understand the borders have changed many times there over the years.
Like I said I'm fairly new to this any suggestions you may have to help me would be greatly appreciated. I hope your search is going well.
Tony Turini

the ancestors of you both will have been from same area! ;-)
it will have been Trentino, Italy, the "italian" province of "Tyrol". which belonged until 1919 to Austrian-Hungarian Empire. many moved from there to mines in the states.

have you looked at Ellisisland if there is a home-place listed for him at imigration? what is his firstname?

if you would find his placename - Trentino has the files online:

to see where are the most Turini/Turrini write the name in at "cerca un cognome" and click "Trova". the most Turini in Tuscany/Toscan, but also small poulation at Trentino. interesting that the Turrini more north to find.most in Emiglia Romana- and Veneto-area.
