Bernard Fitzpatrick was an Irish convict, who may have been my great-great grandfather, even though my GGG's name was Stephenson (his mother, Sarah's married name).
Immigration of Hennig or Henny family from DORFPROZELTEN, Germany, to NSW. Began with John Henny 1855.
Sarah Holihan. Born in Ireland, married in Sydney (1866), died in Sydney, April 1920. I need details.
Particularly the Kenneys (Kennys) from Wexford.

How's everything going?

Now that you have had a little time to try WikiTree, there are a few more features you may find useful.

Ideas on what to include in a profile can be found in Styles and Standards, including some tips on writing biographies.

If you need to describe an event, an heirloom or a location relevant to your research, you may like to learn about Free Space Profiles.

Lastly, sometimes you'll run into unresponsive profile managers. We have a process for resolving those unfortunate situations.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask via my profile page.

Hello Greg

Sounds like you are Australian with a Cassidy connection. Any more info, perhaps we are related? Not sure what Hennig means? Is it a place?

The email we just sent has helpful links to get you started. When you confirm your email address, you’ll be given an opportunity to volunteer to help document our collective family history.

Use the Tags and comments to tell us about your genealogical interests.

When you volunteer, one of our Greeters will confirm your membership. Then you'll be able to add your family to the tree!
