I have been helped in tracing my ggg'father who was one of two brothers John and Thomas(mine)Whelan who arrived from Cork in 1813 on 'Archduke Charles',but they arrived as 'Phelan'.I understand they went to Menangle which matches marriage records I have BUT,these records also indicate 'this' Thomas Whelan was about 40 in 1856,(b1816??),which is no match for the 1813 arrival.So I'm well and truly stuck,time to work on this being the main problem.Is this a fair question?

Before contacting someone professional try posting your question at one of the Australian Genealogy groups on FaceBook. There are a lot of people there who have good suggestions.

If you want to pay someone, do a google search for    NSW Australia professional genealogist     That will give you a number of possibilities to check into.

If you knew the name of his wife, that might help narrow the search. As it is,  familysearch.org   shows a lot of men named Thomas Whelan born in Ireland.   familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:KMS4-NQN

Very similar to the first example: familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:KM3L-GC7

This one looks interesting: familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:FLJ5-QZC

You can search at no cost, just by entering what you have at  familysearch.org
