14 September 1895 Mornago, Varese, Italy
Luigi Tamborini and his wife Clementina Bianchi of Mornago, Varese
Note from researcher - "I'm not so sure anymore that his mother was Clementina Bianchi. The records for the Nineties
are written horizontally on loose sheets, and sometimes it is difficult to match the different parts of the records".

Alternate Names or Alternate Spelling of Names
A relative of Baldo's, Alberti Tamborini, was also killed in the Hillcrest Mine Disaster.
Baldo's relative Alberto Tamborini was also killed in the Hillcrest Mine Disaster.
They were both from Mornago with the same name of father but different name of mother.
Notes from C. Vollmer: My great grandmother claimed Alberti and Baldo were "only children" in their families.
Family information from Hillcrest cousin Luigi Tamborini claims they were cousins of each other and of him.
The cousins were buried beside each other in the Hillcrest Mass Grave (Italian section).
There were many Tamborini families in Mornago.
